CFO – SaaS startup

Retained to find CFO with fund raising experience

We were engaged by a fast growing SaaS start-up to find them their first CFO. Having successfully established the business and made it profitable with no external investment, the founders wanted to raise series A funding and required a CFO to lead this. They also needed someone who could establish a finance function from scratch so we worked on a profile to target candidates with a track record in growing start-ups, developing the finance function and securing funding. The business had tried to find a candidate directly and the role had been offered but subsequently rejected. As such, the need was now urgent and we delivered the successful candidate within 2 weeks of the initial briefing.
