CEO Succession Practices
To provide background information on succession practices and be of assistance to companies performing the critical task of ensuring a smooth leadership turnover, CEO Succession Practices annually documents and analyzes succession events of chief executive officers that were announced at S&P 500 companies in 2019 and the previous 18 years. In addition to updates on historical trends, each edition of this report features discussions of notable cases of CEO succession that took place in the calendar year prior to publication (based on press announcements and other publicly available information), and the results of a 2019 survey on the succession oversight practices of corporate boards.
