Adarma, a cyber-security service company backed by Livingbridge, needed a CFO.
The business went through 3 different recruiters who were unable to find a CFO with the right mix of private equity, commercial and strategic skills for their Edinburgh based business. Immediately, we filled with an interim CFO who was on our network, while we sourced a permanent placement.
We looked through our extensive network both locally and more broadly across the UK, before we successful placed a seasoned CFO with experience delivering shareholder value in a results driven environment.
We have worked with Finatal for a number of years, engaging them to help us with both interim and permanent CFO and FD hires across our portfolio. We recently backed a new business in the cybersecurity space, Adarma, based in Edinburgh, and hired an interim CFO through Finatal. Having gone through a failed search process with another firm and exhausted the local market, we asked Finatal to help us; they provided a number of high-quality CFO candidates who were willing to do the weekly commute to Edinburgh, and have just hired an exceptional, high-calibre CFO who fit the brief very well in terms of personality and culture fit. Paul did a great job guiding the candidate through the process and we are delighted to have got Mark on board.
