Our Story

For almost a decade, we have been partnering, networking, researching and problem-solving with one objective in mind: to help private equity backed businesses hire exceptional CFOs and finance leaders.

What is the benefit of being such a highly specialist talent solutions firm? It means we’re personally connected with the European finance leadership community and have a deep understanding of the portfolio CFO and finance leader agenda and of the unique business challenges private equity-backed companies face.

We are committed to delivering exceptional finance leaders for our clients via an accurate, transparent and collaborative process. It’s why we created our own competency-based assessment framework and why we are continuously enhancing CFO-X, our market-leading database of private equity CFOs and finance leadership talent.
