Founder CEO and agent CEO self-interest

Nathan T. Washburn, Mary Sully De Luque

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this study, we contrast the perceived self-interested behaviors of agent CEOs with founder CEOs. We also examine the relationship between these perceived CEO behaviors and employee self-interest. Consistent with our hypotheses, we find that founder CEOs are more likely to display self-interest, and these behaviors are in turn related to employee self-interest.
