Introduction

A company's CEO is often seen as the single most important factor driving its performance. The appointment or resignation of the top executive can have a significant effect on everything from staff morale to share price, and the likes of Steve Jobs and Jamie Dimon have become celebrities in their own right. This case study examines how the role of the CEO is changing in the 'age of personality'.

Highlights

The role of a CEO has evolved and now goes far beyond being a figurehead or the face of the company. In the 21st Century, their personality and appearance hold almost as much sway as cold, hard financial results. This case study examines how important perception of a CEO is and looks at how they work to cultivate their image.
Executive pay has increasingly drawn the ire of many in recent years as it has continued to rise, sometimes with little in the way of justification from financial results. The disparity between CEO pay and that of the average worker has also been the target of great criticism. This case study looks at CEO pay and whether it can be justified.
This case study analyzes the cases of standout CEOs. The CEOs considered in the report are Steve Jobs, who helped transform Apple, Elon Musk one of his generation's great innovators, Marissa Mayer, who bucks the trend of white, middle-aged male CEOs, and Fred Goodwin, who went from hero to zero following the near collapse of RBS in 2008.
