Competition for CFO Bench Talent Heats Up

By Agenda | Nov 7, 2022 | Read more

Partner Kelly Malafis and Principal Roman Beleuta were quoted in the recent Agenda article discussing increased CFO salaries in the past year. A CAP report showed how 7% more CFOs received base salary increases at the largest companies compared to the prior year. Malafis shares that the trend isn’t unusual and that salary increases are about remaining competitive in the market so that salary doesn’t become a distraction. Beleuta explains how median total compensation for CFO’s increased by 17% year over year and the increase was driven by higher bonuses and long-term incentive payouts. The large total compensation increases are not expected to continue in 2022 but retaining key finance talent will require more than just a focus on compensation.
