Richard Gentry, Timothy Quigley & Steven Boivie on CEO Turnover

Richard Gentry, associate professor at the University of Mississippi; Timothy Quigley, associate professor at the University of Georgia; and Steven Boivie, professor at Texas A&M University, join the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss their article A Database of CEO Turnover and Dismissal in S&P 1500 Firms, 2000–2018, which was co-authored with Joseph Harrison. The authors identify accuracy and efficiency gaps in existing CEO-succession datasets and research. To address these gaps, they produce an open-source, documented dataset of CEO turnover and dismissals at S&P 1500 firms and demonstrate their dataset’s potential use in future CEO-succession studies.
