Vell Executive Search selected public technology companies in New England with revenues over $100 M. Financial and technical data were collected from Hoovers, ZoomInfo, and archived press releases.
Companies where CEOs had been on board for less than 3 years were excluded from most analyses. The key exception was comparing performance of companies where the CEO has been on board for at least 3 years (38 companies) vs. companies that recently replaced the CEO (13 companies).
Companies where the CEOs educational background was not available were excluded from the educational analysis, leaving 34 companies for that analysis.
We intend to expand the analysis and would value hearing about your questions / concerns that may not have addressed in this phase of the research.
