Entreprises et dirigeants familiaux : Quelles spécificités parmi les plus grandes entreprises françaises cotées ? (années 1950-années 2000)

Abstract : This chapter is based on a systematic study of the 120 largest listed firms in France and their CEOs and directors in 1956, 1979, and 2009. We use this information to discuss definitions of family firms (based on property and/or control) and the peculiarities, or lack thereof, of these firms and their CEOs and directors. We expand Jean-Claude Daumas' conclusions on the 1950s-1970s, showing that family capitalism has not disappeared in France, but has adapted to financialization, for example by serving higher dividends. The CEOs and directors of family firms, however, still exhibit specific profiles: they come from slightly less prestigious schools but from more endowed families, and they have rarely worked for the administration.
