FinCap Friday: CEO or See You Later?

FinCap Friday

This week's FinCap Friday episode looks at the data from 2019 and early 2020 around the departure of CEOs from their positions at large and well-known companies. Leaving a major role like this requires a lot of decisions and changes, so it is not a decision that is made lightly or quickly. Usually CEOs leave when they retire, are asked to step down due to lack of results, they leave to go work at another company or they are involved in some scandal or ethical dilemma personally or in the workplace that results in their board of directors asking them to leave. How many CEOs stepped down in 2019? Is this in line with previous years? What does the CEO do, anyway? To find out, check out this week's FinCap Friday below:
