In a recent article in The Washington Post, Georgetown McDonough professor Jason Schloetzer discusses the future of CEO succession announcements in light of Fiat Chrysler’s announcement of CEO Sergio Marchionne’s departure.
“There has been a meaningful trend in the detail that’s in the press releases,” Schloetzer says. “No longer do you see as many that are just boilerplate. The fact that they talked about complications from surgery suggests more information than shareholders would have gotten in the past.”
Schloetzer is the William and Karen Sonneborn Term Associate Professor of Business Administration at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. He teaches in the MBA, Executive MBA, and Executive Master’s in Leadership programs.
