This paper provides new empirical insights on the relation between a firm’s customer concentration and CEO equity incentives.

We argue that greater customer concentration reduces the demand for CEO equity-based pay (i.e., compensation delta) through the joint effects of high risk exposures and simpler managerial task delegation and monitoring. Using a broad sample of U.S. supplier firms with varying degrees of customer concentration, we present robust empirical evidence supporting this prediction.

Our CEO compensation delta results also explain, and likely supplant, recent research attempting to link CEO.
