报告主要内容

Using manually collected data of companies listed in Chinese stock markets for the period of 2007--2015, we study the influence of top managers past work experience on firm performance. The results indicate that managers expertise from related industries significantly improves operating performance as measured by return on assets and Tobins q. Exploring the channels through which managers expertise may benefit firms, we show that the expertise from upstream industries contributes to greater trade credit provided by the suppliers while the expertise from downstream industries contributes to less trade credits offered to the customers. Furthermore, managers expertise from related industry contributes to lower operating expenses, higher market shares, and higher efficiency in merger and acquisition.
