Why Your Company Needs a CFO Executive

Hiring a CFO is vital for future-proofing your company. Today’s CFO executives are becoming deputy-CFOs as the second-in-command of their companies. They interact with every aspect of the organisation, from employees to board members and supply chain providers.

The flexibility of today’s CFOs means it’s no longer just FTSE 500 companies searching for CFO executives. Recruiting a part-time or remote CFO can prepare your start-up or SME for rapid growth or develop financial resilience to navigate tricky economic waters.

Recruiting a CFO executive will make your company more efficient, productive, and profitable.

CFOs as Today’s ‘Chief Future Officers’

CFOs no longer spend their days crunching numbers and creating spreadsheets. The role has undergone rapid evolution in the last decade, earning the nickname ‘Chief Future Officer’. It’s a c-suite position that involves preparing the company for its long-term future while mitigating short-term risks.

Your CFO executive search should focus on finding a candidate who can form a winning partnership with your CEO. The data-driven insights of a CFO executive will ground the CEO’s decision-making process and feed into negotiations, investor relations, and overall strategy implementation.

A CFO is intimately involved in the future planning of the organisation, working in unison with the CEO and acting as a financial translator for the board. Traditional financial institutions and private investors are more likely to engage with a company that has a CFO executive on their leadership team.

A skilled CFO executive will implement systems and real-time forecasting into the company’s infrastructure, allowing it to react to industry and market changes quickly. Our talent pool of CFOs includes industry specialists in areas like e-commerce, business, and hospitality.

Headhunting Services vs. Traditional CFO Recruitment

Finance Director

Companies can choose between traditional recruitment and headhunting services for their CFO executive search. Both these recruiting methods are available for companies at different stages of their development and growth cycle.

FD headhunting services are ideal for companies searching for a CFO executive as an immediate replacement or who seek confidentiality. Our headhunting services for a CFO executive search take a proactive strategy.

Utilising our CFO executive headhunter service provides your company with exposure to high-quality candidates with a guarantee of filling your position with a suitable financial professional. Our headhunting process is tailored to suit your company’s recruitment time frame and management needs.

By comparison, our CFO executive search strategy takes a reactive strategy. Your position will be advertised across suitable platforms, attracting candidates actively applying for CFO executive roles.

While our CFO recruiters will also reach out to candidates within our network, the recruitment process will typically be longer than working with a headhunter as each stage of the CFO executive search is handled separately.
