Formatted abstract
This study examines the determinants of the composition of the board of directors and compares Australian evidence with prior overseas research. While that research had identified poor performance and the CEO succession process as impacting on board composition, this study's results differ and raise research questions. Poor performance was identified as a factor impacting on both additions and departures of inside directors. The CEO succession process was not identified as of significant importance in Australia. However, the appointment of a new CEO increased the likelihood of outsiders departing and yet did not affect the addition of outsiders. A number of research issues were identified, all aimed at clarifying the conflict identified between this study and the prior American study.
