Source: University of West Florida
Numerous papers have been published concerning the characteristics of Fortune 500 CEOs and CFOs. Although there is a vast amount of information available regarding the duties and responsibilities of the corporate treasurer, a literature review failed to reveal any current research regarding the corporate treasurer as an individual. The purpose of this research was to gather demographic, personal, and professional data to develop a profile of the current typical Fortune 500 treasurer. A questionnaire was mailed to all the Fortune 500 treasurers requesting the data listed above. The findings of the study indicated that the typical Fortune 500 corporate treasurer was a white male, 48 years of age, who was promoted to his present position at age 43.
