Social Selection Mechanism in Corporate Governance Network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearch

Abstract

This paper investigates network structures that evolved as a result of the executive
and non-executive directorship selection processes in a Danish corporate governance
context. Primarily, the paper focuses on discussion of legitimacy of a board and top
management selection processes that emerge on two fronts – supervisory board selection
of cooperatives, and their choice of executive directors (top-management). The paper
utilizes the exponential random graph models on Danish corporate governance data for
the period of five years (2010-2014) to reveal network structures in order to estimate
tendencies for the social selection processes. This method is applied to enable unfolding
of a discussion on how different interests and scarce resources over preferable social
actors (team members) create network dynamics, and how legitimate those processes
are. Findings show that corporate governance network in Denmark tends to evolve
around the most active top-managers and supervisory board members, while homophily
effect related to knowledge and experience of actors plays significant role only within the
supervisory board level, while not in the network between supervisory board members and
top-managers.
