MILLBURN, N.J. ( Stockpickr) -- Companies, unlike members of the animal kingdom, can theoretically live forever. But a company's CEO, the person in charge of the day-to-day operations of the company, is human, and his or her time at the top is finite.Issues always arise for both the company's management and shareholders as to what to do when a CEO leaves, whether the departure is planned or not. While the board of directors will ultimately make the decision as to whom to appoint as the CEO, investors, in my opinion, invest as much in the company's management as they do in the company's stock.
