In the last five years, Finatal have placed over 15 CFOs for August Equity, a private equity business focused on health, technology and businesses services industries. In 2019 alone, we have placed 5 CFO roles within their portfolio businesses, and are now their preferred supplier.
CFO hire for this business require a suitable culture fit. Finatal has been able to recommend CFO candidates who August Equity have previously overlooked, by considering their cultural fit and technical ability together. These ‘out of the box’ placements have since worked out to be successful placements.
“I’ve engaged with Finatal twice in the last year for Finance Directors within our portfolio and been very impressed with the outcomes on both occasions. They get what good private equity FD looks like, and has a very good understanding of the kind of FDs we at August like to work with. He has been tenacious, proactive and delivered strong shortlists for two very different briefs, and we’ve been really happy with the Finance Directors we’ve hired and the value they’ve delivered so far.”

“We’ve worked with Paul and Finatal over the last few years to recruit most of our CFOs across the portfolio, in a range of locations across the UK – including Glasgow, Yorkshire, Midlands and the South East. Paul has a great understanding of what makes an August FD tick and is the proverbial “rat up a drainpipe”, always proactive and finding some exceptional candidates that have helped our businesses drive forward. “
