Chief Financial Officer Search - CFO Executive Search

The Challenges of Searching For a CFO or Chief Financial Officer

An industry-leading publicly-traded podcast and web hosting company engaged N2Growth for their next Chief Financial Officer search. The company was seeking a collaborative and engaging CFO to lead the company’s financial functions with a direct reporting relationship to the Chief Executive Officer.

The Mission

Our client required a tested CFO with a strong and disciplined background in all company financials with a special emphasis on accounting policies required of companies publicly traded on major stock exchanges.  Particular expertise required included financing activities, SEC filings, and preparation for shareholder communications.  The CFO would oversee all financial forecasting, strategic planning, and communication with the Board of Directors and company shareholders.  In working to find the client’s Chief Financial Officer, N2Growth played a pivotal role as thought partners in helping the client to envision an optimal candidate type to oversee all elements of the company’s financial strategy and execution.  

The Result

The specific insights we drew and alignment we found at the early days of this search created clarity and little need for specification iteration as the search developed. Our team rigorously mapped the market for candidates whose attributes were attuned to the needs of our client. After tens of interviews, we submitted dozens of candidates for consideration for the role. Despite a COVID-related economic slowdown, we worked with our client to ensure finalist candidate interviews were conducted given the pandemic.  Our client executed an employment agreement with a top-tier, multi-time CFO candidate with deep expertise in all aspects of finance, in both private and publicly-traded companies.
