According to recent research, about one fifth of companies change their CFOs annually, and the market for financial officers talent has become increasingly competitive over the past year — with the best candidates often considering multiple opportunities at any one time.

Tightening talent pipelines are edging up CFO pay packages, according to recruiters, making the hunt for CFOs one of the more lucrative areas of the headhunting business.

Some leading CFOs, like Kathryn Mikells, newly named CFO to premium drinks business Diageo in London, are so in demand that multiple offers have resulted in multiple CFO postings over a short period of time: Ms. Mikells has held five public company CFO chairs in the last five years at companies all considered leaders in their field, including Xerox, ADT, NALCO, and United Airlines, in addition to her recent posting at Diageo.
