    ... so are the female CEOs brought in to 'put on a pretty face ' to a persistently troubled company or are some companies so toxic the males wouldn't take the wheel for any amount of cash

    well one theory i have heard is that a company in trouble would be wise to pay for quality management to affect a company turnaround or company restructure .

    whilst Nick Moore ( formerly of MQG ) publicly declared ' the sky is the limit ' for those who exceed goals .

    obviously the renumeration of executive staff depends on the tolerance of share-holders ( or should in an ideal world )
    now i hold MQG ( and have since 2011 ) and can see the wisdom ( and results ) of that belief.


    i find the trend of the highest paid female CEOs leading companies in negative total returns worthy of future research as a possible indicator of a future business trend

    does a recent tragic company history allows females to bypass ' the glass ceiling '

    ( i hold several companies with female CEOs , gender doesn't normally affect my share selections and definitely not as much as company performance )
