In this report, Criticaleye Partner Eton Bridge Partners explores the journey of a Chief Financial Officer to a Chief Executive Officer, uncovering the complexities and challenges that a CFO encounters when venturing into a new domain.

Key Takeaways include:

  • According to the data, a surprising statistic shows that only 20 percent of first-time CEOs were previously CFOs (just behind the COO as the most common route to a first-time CEO).
  • Roughly 15 percent of the current FTSE 100 CEOs stepped up to the top job directly from a CFO position.
