CFO & senior finance search

Nadja Essmann leads the CFO practice for the German-speaking DACH region, concentrating on CFO-level and senior mandates for private equity funds and private capital-backed businesses across all sectors.

Building your leadership pipeline

Strong knowledge of the market and its players is necessary to hire a CFO who will add value to your leadership team. 

We approach all senior search mandates with in-depth research, extensive network reach-out, thorough interview screening and detailed reports to assure the success of these crucial searches.

Ensuring that the level of performance and experience fulfil your goals is a challenge for mid-level search, especially in offshore locations. 

We’ll reference and network to benchmark the suitability of the hire.

Client stories

A German pharmaceutical manufacturing company was seeking a head of global financial planning & analysis

The search profile they had in mind was challenging: they wanted a top performer with PE experience and pharma experience who would nonetheless accept a career side-step and an average compensation package. It was a time intensive search with high and sometimes unaligned requirements, and we turned every stone to make our client happy.
