The career paths which the 1988 Business Week 1000 chief executive officers (CEOs) followed on the way to the top are explored. No one organisational function or background dominates the CEO profile and no one career path can be said to breed CEOs. Almost 76 per cent of today′s CEOs worked their way up the corporate ladder after they joined their current company. The average CEO has been with his/her present company for nearly 24 years, and nine of these years as CEO. Only 19.5 per cent of the CEOs were hired directly from another company.
