Welcome to our Technology CEO Transitions Newsletter. We endeavour to catalogue all open technology CEO roles (as of 7/31/2017)  and latest appointments for the month of July 2017. 

IMPORTANT NOTE!  

THREE TWEAKS TO THE SET OF COMPANIES 

#1 - Including more smaller companies, especially if they are a trend or just we deem cool.

#2 - Including more North American companies that some of you may or may not consider "tech" but are definitely getting a big footprint in digital  / tech.  

#3 -  Increasing the size cut-off for companies that are not in North America/ EMEA and don't have a specific interesting trend of coolness factor. 

The average length of time the searches are open is 2.97 months, down from 3.8 months earlier this year. There is little variance across geographies.
