Our brief was to identify and attract an exceptionally talented CFO with considerable PLC experience.
Our client had enjoyed a number of years of extraordinary growth and now required a leader who would be fit for the current and future organisation. The business therefore needed to appoint an individual who could bring an increased level of rigour, discipline and commercial focus, without diluting the entrepreneurial approach which had originally made the business successful.
To ensure Fortune Hill could appoint the very best candidate for the role, our Research Consultants methodically and swiftly identified the CFO of every listed UK business.
The team simultaneously networked to identify hidden talent, resulting in numerous recommendations and ultimately a shortlist of candidates who were considered to be exceptionally talented and would fit well with the client's culture.
Fortune Hill enabled the client to hire one of the UK's most impressive Chief Financial Officers.
The client was delighted with the result and following a carefully managed process, the successful candidate joined their business. Since joining we have received feedback that he has made an impressive impact on the business.
"I have worked with a large number of Executive Search firms in my career and Fortune Hill's work is of the very highest standard. From my perspective the whole experience was very impressive". Chief People Officer
