Survey: The Average Tenure of a CFO

Survey: The Average Tenure of a CFO

tenure of a cfoOne of the concepts we discuss during the first day of our coaching workshop series is the “Life Cycle of a CFO”.  The life cycle takes us from the decision to hire a CFO (usually due to a problem/crisis of some sort) through the eventual departure of the CFO for other opportunities and the subsequent emergence of another problem/crisis, causing the cycle to begin anew. We are once again surveying for the average tenure of a CFO.

The Average Tenure of a CFO

When we first introduced this concept to our classes almost four years ago, the average tenure of a CFO was about 4.1 years.  With the considerable changes in the financial landscape since then, we are curious to see what, if any, effects these changes have had on the life cycle of a CFO.
To answer this question, we developed a brief survey to find out how long you have been in your current position as CFO/Controller.  Click the button below to take the survey and get instant results.

We’ll summarize the responses in a future blog post, so stay tuned and thanks for participating!
