Research conducted by Jason Sandvik, assistant professor of finance in the Eller College of Management, was cited in a July 1 New York Times article noting the effects that CEO pay transparency has had on the workforce.

The article mentions that the purpose of corporations disclosing how much they pay their top leaders was to “encourage a more conservative management of industry.” However, the opposite happened and the average chief executive payment rose due to lower-paid executives noticing and pushing for higher pay.

Prior to joining Eller in 2022, Sandvik earned his PhD in Finance from the University of Utah and worked at Tulane University. His research interests include empirical corporate finance, labor economics, and disclosure policy. His work has been published in top academic journals, including the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Management Science, and the Journal of Accounting Research. His work has been cited in major media outlets such as the Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes.
