CEO Statistics

October 14, 2007

Here are some interesting statistics from a recent poll of our “emerging culture” (just North of startup) client CEOs…

The baseline for the poll was a change in their financial status from 2003 to 2006 (we got this idea after we made Inc. 500 – same time-frame) and some other fascinating data /1.

Political Affiliations

52% of the CEO’s polled are Republican, 22% are Independent, 17% are Democrat and 2% are Libertarian.

Experience

57% have started other companies.

47% intend to start another company in the future.

Education

47% have college (BS) degrees; 25% have master’s degrees; and, 2% have Ph.D’s.

Motivation

30% cited financial independence, and 24% said a demand for a specific product of service.

Compensation

7% were paid under $100k. /2

43% were paid $100k to $250k.

27% were paid 250k to 500k.

9% were paid 500k to $750k

5% were paid $750k to $1 million.

6% were paid $1 million to $3 million.

2% were paid over $3 million.

Net Worth

2003     2006

48%       12% – Under $1 million
