Specialist CEOs and IPO Survival

15 February 2016

Time: 1:00 - 2:00pm
Venue: 4.04/4.08 Bancroft Building


The research documents that IPO firms led by specialist CEOs have a lower probability of failure and higher survival 5 rates in subsequent periods following the offering. The findings suggest that specialist CEOs enhance the ability of IPO firms to remain viable for a longer period of time, which is also consistent with the upper echelons theory’s predictions about the influence of managerial experience on corporate outcomes.

Guest Speakers

Professor Dimitrios Gounopoulos from Newcastle University Business School, Newcastle University.

The seminar will be hosted by Dr Androniki Triantafylli, School of Business and Management, QMUL.
