Abstract: Excessive CEO compensation has sparked off discussions in the academic and the corporate circles. Dick Grasso, the former Chairman and CEO of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), was forced to step down in September 2003 much before his scheduled retirement in 2007, when he was accused of receiving an excessive pay package.

His case reinforced the need for reforming the governance practices at NYSE in particular and the corporate world in general.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the issues of separation of the office of Chairman and CEO, and the independent functioning of the boards
  • To discuss the governance practices required to eliminate incorrect and unjustified compensation pay packages of CEOs.
