Who leaves? Why? So what?

exechange is an independent research provider widely recognized as an important voice on executive changes.

exechange tracks executive movements and provides the financial communities with analysis and data that can’t be found anywhere else.

The next exechange report will be published on Monday.

  • We focus on the way a leader is leaving.
  • We watch out for push-out forces.
  • We determine the Push-out Score™.

Forced or voluntary departure? The Push-out Score is the number you need to know.

We help our readers make prudent decisions, reduce risk and benefit from enhanced transparency.

Our readers include personnel professionals, global executive search and leadership consulting firms, executive coaching companies, management consulting firms, event-driven investment managers, corporate governance experts, private equity firms, banks and corporations.

Our readers require comprehensive information about the reason for the management change and details regarding the executive-firm fit.

Our coverage universe includes over 3,000 of the most widely publicly-traded names in the U.S. markets.

The Push-out Scoring System has been extensively tested on more than thousand individual cases before its first publication. In the past six months alone, we have assessed more than 200 cases and publicly disclosed the results.

An independent, critical examination of the Push-out Score was published by

Stanford Graduate School of Business and

Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation.

The academic researchers conclude:

“Unlike models that strictly categorize executive departures as forced or voluntary, the Push-out Score produces a score on a scale of 0 to 10 that amounts to a confidence level that the CEO was compelled to leave.”

“The Push-out Score developed by exechange offers a systematic approach for combining observable evidence with expert human judgment to arrive at a reasonable assessment of the likelihood of CEO termination.”

“The Push-out Score offers a graded score that amounts to a confidence level that a CEO was terminated.”

“The data suggest that Push-out Scores are positively correlated with stock market volatility.”
