Chief executives wondering who may be after their job should look no further than their chief financial officer. According to a new survey released today, the majority of CFOs in the U.K. want to take on the top job.
The survey was produced by recruitment agency Robert Half U.K. and found 86 percent of U.K. CFOs are driven to reach the role of CEO in their current organisation. Two hundred CFOs were interviewed online for the study.
The survey also revealed that 23 percent of the CFOs surveyed saw the company's marketing director as their biggest rival for the top job, while 22 percent saw the chief information and technology officers as the greatest competition.
