Dr. Alec Zama to Present at Management Conference

October 11, 2018

Dr. Alec Zama, Professor of Business and Director of the Viking Leadership Credential, will present a research paper at the Midwest Academy of Management Conference (MAM) in St. Louis, Illinois on October 12. The title of the paper is "Does CEO Origin and Power Matter in the Composition of Top Management Teams (TMT)?" The research examines the role new CEOs play in the composition of TMTs after the CEO succession in Fortune 500 companies. More specifically, the research examines whether the inside vs. outside succession and new CEOs power (when the CEOs are also assigned the title of the chairperson of the board) lead to different degrees of homogeneity in the composition of new TMTs. 

Dr. Zama has been a  regular presenter and reviewer for MAM since 2009.
