Abstract
Although family firms have long been of interest to researchers, research on socio-psychological dynamics within the upper echelons of family firms, e.g. with regard to CEO compensation, is limited. A deeper understanding of these dynamics, however, is a necessary prerequisite not only to explain why some CEOs of family firms receive higher or lower pay than other CEOs of family firms. More importantly, such an analysis provides important insights into the cognition, behaviour, and motivation of individual CEOs as the key decision makers in family firms. Using a sample of S&P 500 firms between 2006 and 2014, this study aims to dig more deeply into the socio-psychological dynamics of CEO compensation in family firms by adopting a behavioural perspective based on social identity theory to explain heterogeneous patterns of CEO compensation in family firms.
