Focus & Areas of Expertise

Our work is focused exclusively on the recruitment of financial officers and this concentration gives us great depth in the marketplace and valuable credibility with the candidate pool you are seeking to attract.  We believe that finance skills are fungible across most industries but we fully acknowledge that industry expertise is increasingly important if senior financial officers are to hit the ground running and make a positive impact on shareholder value.

We focus our attention only on Financial Officer Recruitment

We understand the different needs at the CFO position given various ownership structures. We have experience working with our Private Equity partners in the recruitment of CFOs for their portfolio companies. We know the challenges that are faced in the today’s public markets and have been effective partnering with CEOs in the recruitment of what is often their number 2. And finally, we have successfully completed searches for companies that are family owned.
 We are able to partner with CFOs to help recruit the key members of their team.  Given our experience in Finance, we understand the roles and are able to effectively vet the functional skills of the candidates.  These roles include:

  • Corporate Controller / Chief Accounting Officer
  • Treasurer
  • Investor Relations
  • Divisional CFOs
  • Head of FP&A
  • VPs of Finance or other senior members of the finance organization
Given our deep knowledge of the financial officer market we are asked and able to help our clients with the recruitment of financial officers to serve as a financial expert and often as the Chair of the Audit Committee.  Clearly the world has changed and  both the regulatory environment (SOX) and the inherent liabilities of the board requires significant depth of talent in terms of finance functional knowledge.   Clients want expertise and not just someone who “checks the box” for the requirements of their financial expert.
