Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the possible impacts of ownership structure and corporate performance on managerial turnover using a unique dataset of Russian corporations. We argue that Russia is regarded as a country with a highly authoritarian and collectivism-oriented national culture and this peculiarity is the key to disentangling the puzzle of the statistically weaker relationship between firm performance and CEO renewal in Russian firms. Standing on this viewpoint, we deal with not only CEO dismissal, but also managerial turnover within a company as a whole. By conducting multinomial analysis that incorporates both factors, we found significant relationship between firm performance and CEO dismissal, while, consistent with most previous studies, a standard logit analysis of CEO turnover revealed no clear relationships. We also found that the presence of a dominant shareholder significantly increases the likelihood of turnover of whole management team, while foreign ownership tends to cause partial (CEO only) turnover. Our empirical result is consistent with the "cultural view" of management practice as put forward by House et al. (2004).
