You may be aware of a blog that I put out weekly called CFO Moves. This blog is the most comprehensive report of CFO Movement across the United States. (We also have CFO Moves Canada and CFO Moves UK). In the past year, CFO Moves announced over 1,000 new CFOs that were hired, not counting those that resigned or were promoted beyond the CFO chair.
Last July we issued our very popular blog with the most popular names of CFOs hired, and this year we decided to do the same. (You can check out our 2012 edition here).
So, if your company hired a new CFO in the past 12 months, there is a good chance your CFO may have on of the following first names.
- Michael / Mike
- John / Jonathan
- David / Dave
- James / Jim
- Steve / Steven / Stephen
- Catherine / Katherine
- Christine / Christina
There was only one change in the top 5 for men (Jim replaced Mark) since last year, but for the women, the only one of 2012’s top CFO names that stayed in the top 5 was Christine.
