I was introduced to Robert Draper at EquityFD by an investor contact as I was seeking a new CFO to partner me on the next stage of the business journey.

Robert is a very reliable, professional and warm person to work with as well as being expert in his field. He thus gave me great confidence on day one and he and his team did not disappoin , running a thoughtful and complete process enabling me to make an informed decision about this key hire.

Working with EquityFD to source our first CFO was a rewarding experience. Finding a candidate with the right mix of commercial sense, technical expertise and cultural fit was a tricky balancing act and iterated as the process continued. Working with Joanna has been enjoyable, a real partnership and with a great end result.

We were introduced to EquityFD by an investor contact as a potential partner in our search for a new CFO for Afford it Now.

I was introduced to EquityFD by the investors of a business where I am Chairman and when I needed to source a new Finance Director. Robert ran an extremely good process. In addition, the quality and varied background of the candidates was exactly what I was looking for, enabling me to make an excellent hire.

We have worked with EquityFD and its sister businesses a number of times to help our portfolio companies source high calibre candidates, in a wide range of industries. We naturally turned to them recently when we sourced a new CFO for a Retail company in our portfolio.

Joanna ran a very focused process enabling an expeditious and high quality recruitment to be made. We will certainly be returning to EquityFD again when the need arises.

I was introduced to EquityFD by an investor in my fast growth tech business. I needed to hire an FD but initially  I wasn’t sure about the exact  profile of the  person  I required. Sar ah and Robert  worked with me over a period of time to help to  iterate the spec and the person fit and introduced me to  a range of candidates . I have now taken on a new FD and he is proving to be a great asset to me and the business . This hire was born out of a thorough, intelligent and reflective process and enabled me to make a certain and informed decision.

As Crossword Cybersecurity plc moved from early start up to growth stage, we decided to recruit a full time Finance Director. EquityFD was recommended by one of our investors. Sarah and her team did an excellent job of understanding and shaping our requirements with their deep expertise in this specialist area, putting forward a strong shortlist of vetted candidates and helping us select the ideal FD for Crossword.

Whilst EquityFD would not be considered the typical recruitment firm to identify a CFO for a large Social Enterprise such as Turning Point, we approached Joanna Adolph to partner us in our search because we firmly believed that she fully understood both the requirement of the role and the unique culture of the organisation. Joanna introduced us to a diverse range of candidates and we were able to successfully hire an impressive CFO who has recently joined us. We are delighted with the outcome and have no hesitation in recommending EquityFD to any organisation for their in depth understanding and experience of CFO recruitment.

Julie Bass, Group Managing Director, Turning Point

I was referred to EquityFD by one of our advisers as I needed to supplement my senior team with some new finance hires.

Robert was very engaged with my requirements from the start, running a smooth, informed and attentive process resulting in two key appointments in swift order.

He really understood the nature of a rapidly expanding business and was able to match my requirements for candidates with an appetite for high growth and an ability to function effectively in such a dynamic environment.

Amanda Davis, Group Finance Director, Independent Vetcare Group

I worked with EquityFD to source a CFO for a new investment we were making. Given their understanding of the PE market, they were happy to work alongside us on a fully success basis and identified a great candidate ahead of the deal completing which was extremely helpful to the process.
