Navigating the pathway to becoming a CFO

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Did you know 37% of CFO appointments are made in the USA, versus only 2% in Japan? Or that the NASDAQ is one of the most gender-diverse markets in the world, and the FTSE one of the least?

Welcome to the 2023 edition of our CFO Pathways Report.

Through a collaboration with the relationship company, BoardEx, combined with Eton Bridge Partner’s global finance network, we have analysed over 1.7 million executives across the globe (if you’re not familiar with us, chances are we’re familiar with you!). The result is, we believe, the most detailed report of all global CFO appointments in 2021 and 2022.

This year, we take a detailed look at the international landscape for Chief Financial Officers, including appointments by geography and equity index. We also delve into sector, ownership model and of course gender and age diversity.

We have included a qualitative review of the market, sharing our experience as global CFO headhunters.

Whether you are an experienced CFO, looking to appoint a CFO, or an aspiring finance professional, we hope you find the report enjoyable. Enjoy!
