Economic Seminar Examines CEO Succession

FEB. 5, 2005--The UW-River Falls Center for Economic Research is holding a seminar examining the succession of top executives on Feb. 18 at 3:15 p.m. in Room 321 of South Hall.

Jude Rathburn, UW-RF professor of management, will present, "New CEO Experience and Lineage Effects on the Magnitude and Timing of Change and on Organizational Performance."

Rathburn examined the success of new executives to CEO positions from data previously collected on head coach successions, change, and performance in the National Football League. Rathburn's research shows top executive succession positively influences the performance of an organization by studying the timing of the change and the experiences of the new CEO.

The seminar is free and open to the public. The presentation will be preceded by refreshments at 3 p.m. in Room 317 of South Hall.
