The personal lives of CEOs have come under scrutiny lately because what a CEO does in his off-hours seems to have a bearing on how well his company’s stock performs. “It found that on average, the stocks of companies run by leaders who buy or build megamansions sharply underperform the market. The researchers don’t claim to know why. They theorize that some of these executives might be focused more on enjoying their wealth and less on working hard.” (via mr)
Also, I loved that the WSJ published the nickname of “Frederick E. ‘Shad’ Rowe Jr.” Shad Rowe!
