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.
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
