What it takes to be a successful business leaders? It derives from an analysis of the heads of companies from Germany, Switzerland and France, are as follows: You should be a man, about 50 years old and with preference for a degree in business administration and have completed the engineering Sciences have, however, also opportunities. A PhD is no longer Central. As a compensation you can expect for the Job in all countries of 4.4 million Swiss francs. However, this is only the average, it can be in the best case, of 15.2 million Swiss francs, or "only" 660'000 Swiss francs in the worst. With the advantage of conducting a company in Germany, at least you earned in France.
These results shows a compilation of data to the boss (CEO) of 150 companies that are represented in the leading stock market indices in the countries of France, Germany and Switzerland. The financial platform IG has chosen for each of the three countries, the 50 companies with the highest-earning Chefs – but only those companies are included in the consideration, for which the necessary data were available.
women massively under-represented
Among all the considered heads of companies found only two women: Isabelle Kocher, CEO of the French energy group, Engie, and Jasmin Staiblin, the this function in the collection of data on 7. December 2018 had the Swiss energy group Alpiq yet. In the meantime, you has these Items in the context of the realignment of the company to Jens Alder, and thus again to a man made. In order Isabelle Kocher is the only woman in France, Germany and Switzerland, which manages one of the 150 included in the analysis for large companies.
if you Look at the age structures of the company managers, so most of them are in all countries taken together, between 50 and 60 years old. In France, to apply seems: the older, the more powerful. With 25 heads of companies, half of it is there, older than 60 years, and the country with the almost 84-year-old chief of the eyewear group Luxottica, Leonardo del Vecchio, the oldest business leaders of all. With the second oldest, the 79-year-old Günther man fell from the glasses group from Germany, General del Vecchio has, that both of them have founded their companies.
"the Switzerland is represented at the heads with the highest wages."
Particularly well, Switzerland is represented at the heads with the highest wages. Among the ten highest-paid company bosses, four are from companies from our country: Sergio Ermotti of UBS, Severin Schwan of Roche, Jan Jenisch of Lafarge, Holcim and Tidjane Thiam of Credit Suisse. At the top of the list in all countries considered, Werner Baumann, chief of German pharmaceutical giant Bayer, with 15.2 million Swiss francs, followed by Sergio Ermotti, who has brought it to 14.2 million Swiss francs. According to the latest remuneration report of the Bank – the IG investigation has not yet taken into account – he will also need to take in the last year, a decline in purchasing. His total compensation amounted to 14.1 million Swiss francs. Third, Severin follows the Swan: In the study, his income is estimated at 11.7 million francs, which he received for his services in the year 2017. Also, this amount has not changed for 2018 with an increase of 70'000 Swiss francs, much.
The best income available in Germany
on average, the top managers in Germany to collect, however, with 5.3 million Swiss francs more than those in Switzerland, with 4.7 million Swiss francs. In France there are, on average, for the 50 highest-earning "only" 3.1 million. The lowest ranks of the income are also consistently with French business leaders occupied. At the very end Arthur Sadoun is available with 660'000 Swiss francs.
you Look at the training paths, there is no University that has a particularly great importance. Particularly in France and Germany, the domestic training-dominate the sites with a large distance. It's only in the heads of companies from Switzerland to a broader international orientation. However, this has to do with the a lot of Swiss top managers are from abroad. While in Switzerland, as in Germany, most have completed a degree in operation or Economics, the majority in France, training as an engineer. A doctorate has, in all countries, only a minority. The lowest share of 8 percent in France is the highest with 32 percent in Germany. In Switzerland, one-fifth has obtained his PhD.
The evaluation gives a good Overview of the heads of the large companies. In the Interpretation it is important to note a few things: first of all, only those top managers are included, where data is available, and, secondly, they do not show causalities: i.e., if, today, almost no woman is on top, it's not up to you, and do not need to remain so. On the cultural and social backgrounds to, or to the salaries, the data say nothing. And it is hoped that this type of distribution remains carved in stone.
