Mergers, buyouts and takeovers are changing the face of business in Chicago and the nation — and in the CEO suite as well.  Those changes prompted some summer fantasies recruiter, and you get a phone call from a CEO who says he or she is ready to make a job change, and could you find a new position for him or her?
