End of Year Turnover Review

2014 turned out to be similar to 2013 with respect to senior executive turnover. The economy is improving and employment improved in 2014, but the long term unemployed and slow growth in salaries for most workers continue to be problematic. Liberum Research points out in a recent report that executive turnover totals for C-level executives in North America showed declines from 2009 through the second quarter of 2011. Since then, C-level turnover has been increasing, but this has been in “fits and starts” with 2014 C-level turnover being significantly below that seen in 2008. Liberum believes that the trend will remain about the same through 2015.

The table below details the annual C-level turnover as registered through Liberum Research’s Management Change Database for 2008 through 2014.

Year 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014
Annual Total 23,307 16,241 11,555 16,849 18,910 16,392 16,350
