The average Indian CEO lasts less than 4 years in the corner office
Indian CEOs are increasingly likely to ‘resign’ rather than retire, a Mint analysis shows
Top Indian corporate leaders last fewer years in office than politicians do. A chief executive officer or managing director of an average BSE 500 company stays in the role for 3.4 years, a Mint analysis of data from the past decade suggests. The global average for the world’s largest 2500 companies during 2004-18 was 5 years according to a PwC study, about 47% higher than the Indian average.
