Abstract

This paper builds a multivariate regression model with A-share listed companies from 2014-2018 as a sample to empirically examine the relationship between executive background heterogeneity and firm performance. The study found that: (1) executive age heterogeneity and executive education background heterogeneity are significantly positively correlated with corporate performance; (2) executive authority background heterogeneity is significantly negatively correlated with corporate performance; (3) There is no significant correlation between executive term heterogeneity and firm performance. The above findings provide new ideas for the construction of corporate executive teams and policy recommendations for promoting enterprise innovation-driven strategies.
