Conyon, Martin and Nicolitsas, D (1998) Does the Market for Top Executives Work? CEO Pay and Turnover in Small UK Companies. Small Business Economics, 11 (2). pp. 145-154. ISSN 0921-898XFull text not available from this repository.
This paper presents the results of our investigation into the operation of the managerial labour market in small and medium sized manufacturing companies. Using a sample of some 40 or so companies we study the sensitivity of managerial pay and tenure to company performance. Managerial pay in this type of firms is much lower than the six digit figures quoted for large public companies and CEO turnover is much higher than we expected. We find some evidence to suggest that pay in small companies is sensitive to sales growth and that CEO tenure in public companies responds to the growth in sales.
