The Odd Couple Revisited: A Quantitative Analysis of Perceived CFO – CEO Relationships in SDA North American Division Conferences

The purpose of this paper is to examine CFO-CEO relationship data collected from SDA Conferences in North America utilizing Descriptive Statistics, ANOVAs and Chi-Square Analysis.
