Corporate Headquarters Change : Investigating Antecedents from an Upper Echelons Perspective

Item Type Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Abstract

Since Chandler (1962) drew attention to the multi-business corporation, scholars have explored a variety of phenomena related to corporate headquarters. Yet, the phenomenon of corporate headquarters change has been widely disregarded while prima facie evidence for its importance persists. In this study, we seek to explore CEO successions as antecedents to changes in corporate headquarters structures. We argue that both, the nature of the succession event as well as individual characteristics of the CEO successor have effects on such changes. Applying the well-established UPPER ECHELONS perspective, the study is among the first to scholarly investigate the contemporary phenomenon of corporate headquarters change.
