Over half of all FTSE 100 CEO positions are financial professionals, showing how significant it is that you find a quality CFO. Finances have always been the backbone of any business, but it has taken on new importance in recent years. Your CFO works in partnership with the CEO to drive the business forward. Gathering the data and information is only half the battle, as the CFO is the person who will analyse the information and provide the commentary to help it make sense to the rest of the company.

This data feeds into the strategic goals of the organization and brings them to fruition. More of the finance side of every business is becoming automated. You no longer need a full financial department for your business. Thins like your payroll and expenses can be automated with the help of a Chief Financial Officer who oversees the process and ensure the data capture is correct. Any CFO has big shoes to fill, meaning it can be difficult to find the person who is the right fit.

You want someone who will be able to analyse your financial data and interpret it in a way that allows them to develop a strategic plan to meet your business growth or expansion goals. An CFO has to be able to continually interpret information and make accurate forecasts to facilitate decision-making within the organization.  A CFO with a background ofVC funded business can also assist with VC fundraise.

A CFO should be able to understand the changes that are ongoing within the global environment – including economic, political, and technological change. They should understand shifts in consumer behavior and the growing trend of ‘activist’ investors who wreak havoc on the stock market with a social-justice mission.You’re going to rely on your CFO to use their interpersonal skills to communicate their findings and predictions to everyone from key stakeholders to employees in the organization.

Here are some of our specialisms:-

  • Technology CFO – The tech sector continues to grow rapidly and is one of our key focus areas.
  • SaaS CFO – Software as a service is a model we know particularly well.
  • ERP CFO – Enterprise Resource Planning connecting data points together and using that to accurate business insights.
  • Fintech CFO – Finance and Technology go hand in hand in the 21st century.
  • E-Commerce CFO – making the most of the online sales channel is the future for so many businesses.
