What exactly is it that top executives do and does it matter? Due to the recent dramatic increase in high profile corporate failures, Simon Peck’s research centers on that very question. His work examines the link between the actions and accountability of the company, characteristics of the board of directors and top management, and the firm’s competitive advantage. Peck’s work looks closely at topics of executive compensation contracts, board composition and structure, and how top executives do strategic planning.
