This paper studies the relationship between TMT’s background characteristics and firm performance on the basis of real estate firms listed in Shanghai and Shenzhen, in hopes of providing some suggestions about introducing which kind of TMT.This paper is based on TMT’s theories, and takes age, gender, education, major, tenure and experience as the variables of TMT’s background characteristics, while the salary and firm size as the control variable. Firstly, we introduce its basic theories, and analyzes the current situation of the real estate firms and its TMT, then propose the hypothesizes. Secondly, we test the hypothesizes to find the relationship between TMT’s background characteristics and firm performance.
