Among today’s tech titans, which company has spawned the most chief executives for other digital firms?
That would be Yahoo, the company that couldn’t seem to keep its own CEOs for long, according to a report by recruiter Russell Reynolds Associates, as reported by Bloomberg.
According to the Bloomberg report:
In its analysis of 135 prominent public and private U.S. technology companies, the executive search firm found 8.9 percent of current CEOs came from Yahoo, including LinkedIn’s Jeff Weiner. Google alumni followed with 5.1 percent, Microsoft at 3.7 percent, and Facebook and EBay tied for fourth place at 2.9 percent.
Among other interesting findings, according to the report, the most common name among tech CEOs was David. (What, not Steve?)
