Abstract

The extant literature shows that the effects of CEO duality and state shareholder on the sensitivity of management turnover to firm performance are mixed. Using a sample of 1,260 firm-year observations from 226 firms listed in Vietnam from 2009 to 2015, we find supporting evidence for manager turnover mechanism. Interestingly, research results show that the negative relationship between firm performance and CEO turnover is weaker when CEOs simultaneously holds chairman positions. These findings imply that the separation of CEO and chairman positions is necessary to enhance corporate governance.
