Financial Recruitment



The roles of chief financial officers and other senior finance executives grow more complex with each passing year. They must guarantee the integrity of an organization's financial condition and reported results, enhance shareholder value, oversee mergers & acquisitions, establish an optimal risk management program, and keep a sharp eye on costs. And this must be accomplished under heightened scrutiny from government, board directors, shareholders and other stakeholders. Executive recruitment is the most prominent activity that we conduct in response to our client's human resource needs in all areas of finance and accounting.

Our financial officer experts recruit qualified professionals for positions that include:

  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Controllership
  • Tax & Treasury
  • Internal audit, risk and compliance
  • Leadership roles in strategic planning, investor relations and divisional finance


The Investment Banking and Capital Markets sectors focus on origination, as well as on sales, trading and research groups across all product areas. Clients include investment banks, regional banks, and independent broker/dealers. The Alternatives Practice covers hedge, private equity, real estate and fund of funds.
