QualiTest is a managed services provider of quality assurance and testing solutions, backed by PE House Marlin. What was crucial for QualiTest was a finding the right culture fit to the business’ pace and mindset - as much as fulfilling the technical requirements.
In 2019 we ran a retained search to find a top CFO. and through our network, narrowed down to the CFO, Chris Wilmot. Following his hire, he became a client for Finatal, and we sourced multiple roles to support his finance team including a UK FD, M & A Manager, Systems Consultant, UK FC, VP of Israel and data support personnel.
These key hires helped support the growth of the business which sold in 2019 for £330million.
I have recently worked with Finatal to fill a number of key hires in my finance team including a Group Finance Controller. I was extremely impressed with Finatal’s ability to understand my fairly specific skill set and fit requirements and their ability to quickly source a short list of highly suitable candidates. I also appreciated having Finatal’s view on the best person for the role and luckily, we were in agreement on each role. Finatal closed the successful candidate quickly and in line with my remuneration expectations for each role.
