Baird Capital backed BFinance
A CFO who had been working with Finatal for hires in his own team, was now after a new opportunity for himself. He was looking for a CFO role within a private equity backed company.
After meeting with Mark to help us understand his background and experience, we could then narrow down the search and put Mark forward for suitable CFO roles that would meet his requirements and skills set. This helped us to find the most appropriate position for Mark, which turned out to be a role as CFO for Baird Capital backed BFinance.
“I’d been working with Finatal as a client, looking to hire for my team at the Foundry, and when I started looking for a new role. I got back in touch with them, as I had enjoyed working with them and felt their focus on private equity mirrored where I wanted to continue in terms of career.
I met Paul late last year, and he quickly understood my background and what I was looking for – and within a few days of first meeting, had a couple of potential CFO opportunities to discuss.
Over the next month or two, I met a number of PE houses and interviewed for five CFO roles through Paul – all of which looked interesting and were closely matched to my skillset, I was surprised by the variety of roles that Paul was able to access – but one really stood out; as CFO of BFinance, an investment consultancy that Baird Capital were looking to invest in, with a CEO and chairman that I really bought into I could see the potential to create value.
Paul was very helpful and thorough during the process, and I joined the business before the deal completed, to help get it over the line. I felt Paul had the skillset I was looking for in a recruiter and I have just used Finatal again to recruit a Financial Controller to support me here.”
