CEO Shelf Life

CEOs must actively communicate "value plans" to Wall Street and other stakeholders or risk not making it to their second anniversary, according to a recent study from Ketchum's
Reputation Lab. A survey of 1,000 individual investors and 25 Wall Street analysts and portfolio managers found that a new CEO at a public company has only 14 to 17.5 months to
make an impact before investors and Wall Street analysts begin pushing for his resignation.
