Thomas A. Stewart Discusses 2Q 2014 Middle Market Indicator
Executive Director Thomas A. Stewart discusses the latest findings of
the 2Q 2014 Middle Market Indicator which marked the second consecutive
quarter of solid revenue growth for U.S. middle market firms. Virtually every industry segment reported revenue increases, with the manufacturing and healthcare sectors reporting significant year-over-year growth. In addition, firms maintained hiring increases that were reported in the first quarter of the year. This unabated growth through the second quarter, coupled with continued economic confidence, strongly suggests that the middle market has put the recessionary period firmly behind it.
