Digital corporate leadership proxies and financial indicators were analyzed to determine the extent of correlation between these corporate governance attributes, company size, and corporate financial performance. The result of the Company Size analysis suggests positive correlation between two corporate leadership proxies, one financial performance indicator and company size. The Financial Performance analysis suggests positive correlation between one corporate leadership proxy and two Financial Performance indicators and better corporate financial performance during the 2006 through 2nd Quarter 2012 timeframe.
