I would say, give them access..BUT very limited permissions to do damage.

Some of those executives don't just want role-based access. They want "admin" access. At some point their power trumps any calls for security best practice. In the few cases that I've had to do this for clients I make sure I have them sign a disclaimer as I consider the system compromised at the point of giving them said rights.

I would say that an exec level needs access to critical areas of an org.
Having said that what “IT based assets” are you speaking of?
CEO and all C level execs should have role based permissions from the start.
We would need more information to give a detailed response.

Another thought is that they are replacing or outsourcing IT staff, sorry to be negative but I have seen it too many times

Probably not....coming from them yesterday they said and I quote after I stated that rackspace was offline for Exchange 2013 over @ status.apps.rackspace.com.
I quote " Since the status of Exchange is all green it should still be working, if so use other forms of getting emails other than IMAP, Outlook, and others. Have all users stop using Outlook to receive emails. Make it so and get it done in the next 15 minutes...."
I was like um...... are they seriously trying to look smart I was saying in my head, it's making them look dumb!!!......So I was like.......sure I'll go ahead and do what would take me 4+ hours for all 750+ users to change their Exchange settings on their outlook and change it to POP3, I made it appearent to spell it out to them that IMAP has folders in Outlook and POP3 doesn't so if users freaked out when they lost there folders that I was going to be held liable....
they didn't reply to the email....

Least privilege, in my eyes, should be in affect for every single account. Only have access to the areas that are required to do your job, nothing more, nothing less.
