Any database with all of companies previous CEO's?

I’m doing some research on CEO’s and company chairmen and I’m looking for a database that contains this data for all the public US companies. The data needs dates associated with the names as well. I’ll give an example of what I’m looking for.

  • CompanyName, CeoName, StartDate, EndDate
  • Company A , Name1 , 12/04/2000, 10/17/2015
  • Company A , Name2 , 10/18/2015, currently active
  • Company B , Name3 , 05/10/2005, currently active

Not sure if the SEC provides this info or not. SEC filings mostly just get confusing for me so I might not be looking in the right place. If no database like this exists I guess I’ll have to spend the next couple of weeks manually scraping wikipedia for this.

The SEC's EDGAR system has this. Companies are required to file a form 8-K to notify investors of events within a company that may be important. A CEO being replaced is one of those events, generally under item 5.02 in the 8-K.

For example, on August 3rd, 2020 Clorox (NYSE: CLX) replaced their CEO. Here is a link to their filings: CLX EDGAR filings. Go to the August 3rd 8-K, click document, click the link next to Current Report. You will find item 5.02 with the info. Another example would be Disney (NYSE: DIS). You can find the filing here: Disney 8-K 2020-02-25
