Resumé

Turnover among executives warrants our research interest both out of functional and political reasons. Whereas the literature so far has primarily been interested in explanations at the organizational and individual level, we theorize the relationship between senior executives and their political counterparts using social identity theory, social comparison theory and social network theory and present competing hypotheses regarding the effects of demographic similarities and dissimilarities on turnover. Using register longitudinal data of Danish mayors and CAO’s we find that greater age differences increase the likelihood of CAO turnover as does similar educational levels. We argue that our study illustrates the relevance of understanding turnover as a relational phenomenon based on factors beyond rational, political and functional explanations.
