Tenure of CIO

Tenure of CIOs is impacted by booming economy

Tenure of CIO is now 4 years and 6 months. 

CIO Tenure

The primary driver was that 19% of all CIOs had a tenure of 12 months or less. At the same time last year, the same 12 months or less group was 15%. In addition, 28% of all CIOs have held their positions for 24 months or less versus 40% in January 2019.

We have found that between the 24 months and 36 month tenure period a number of CIO leave because the opportunity they were looking for was not there. Also, a number of the CIOs did not meet the expectations of the C-Level management team.
