‘I instructed Finatal to source an Interim CFO for a key portfolio company which was undergoing preparation for a refinancing and review of the strategic plan. Overall, I was delighted with the service I received. I found the hiring process effective, and would recommend Finatal to others seeking senior interim hires within their finance function’
