Executive Appointments and Disappointments

by John Colvin, Justine Turnbull and Mark Blair

Executive Appointments and Disappointments

For chairs and other board members, this book offers guidance on good practice in preparing CEO and other executive employment agreements.


The appointment of the CEO is arguably the single most important decision made by the board. It will affect the company’s culture, determine the company’s ability to attract a high-performing executive team and is key to driving shareholder value.

As part of the CEO selection process, the board must ensure arrangements with the chief executive are attractive to the individual, easily understood by all relevant stakeholders and comprehensively cover financial and other appropriate terms between the individual and the company.

The CEO will have the same responsibilities when engaging senior executives.

Written by three of Australia’s top minds in executive employment arrangements, this book will be of practical help for directors and executives making executive ‘appointments’, and will also assist in avoiding executive ‘disappointments’.


"All who are likely to be involved in the employment of executives should have a copy of this book readily available to them. I will certainly do so.
