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.

Rupert Brown, Investment Manager, Palatine Private Equity

If you are considering appointing Equity FD, I strongly recommend that you prepare to be challenged. I thought that we had a tight brief on the way in, but Equity FD challenged every aspect of our initial thinking, which resulted in a pin-sharp brief followed by a speedy appointment of a Group FD.

If you are ready to be challenged and want to move quickly, I would recommend Equity FD without hesitation.

Steve Jude, CEO, Citibase

I enjoy working with EquityFD. They are responsive and flexible, and work swiftly to conclude the recruitment process. Most importantly, they take the time to listen and understand our requirements. Joanna has been my main contact and she most recently sourced a new Finance Director for our investee company Weirdfish.

She innately understands the skills required for an FD in a growth and exit driven business and takes the time to ensure that there is also a strong cultural fit with the rest of the management team.

Natalie Eastham, Managing Partner, Total Capital Partners

I chose to work with the team at EquityFC  and EquityFD to help to source  my new Finance Director .

They did a great job of giving me and my other directors a real choice enabling us to make a well thought through decision about this key hire .

Thank you Paul  for an excellent search.

Alberto Lopez-Valenzuela, CEO and Founder, Alva

I have known EquityFD and EquityFC  for over 15 years,  and they have  successfully helped on a number of roles. I recently asked them to help me find a new Head of finance/ FD for a primary care business I have joined as CEO.

I choose to work with them  due to their ability to understand business needs and provide candidates with the right qualities and skills, normally on relatively short notice from their well developed network ..

They were able to provide a good shortlist of candidates and ultimately a great hire very quickly which is a real benefit in a rapidly growing business.

Dave Mehzer, CEO, London Doctors Clinics

I was introduced to Equity FD by our Chairman and worked with Robert to source a new Chief Operations Officer for our Team.  Robert was a responsive and engaged Partner on this assignment and succeeded in securing our new Chief Operations Officer who is a great asset for the business.

Graham North, Director, Anstey Horne

We worked with Rachael at EquityFD to source a new CFO for a recent investment – ultra secure managed service provider, The Bunker.

We started work with Rachael pre deal and she reacted swiftly to our requirements, using EquityFD’s extensive network of PE minded FDs and CFOs to secure our new hire in a relatively condensed timeframe.

Andy Strickland, Investment Director, Palatine

I have known Robert and Sarah at EquityFD for over 10 years, and recently instructed them to source me a new CFO for a healthcare buy and build I am CEO for.  I chose to work with EquityFD due to their ability to understand business needs and candidate reach, which meant they were able to supply me with a shortlist containing exceptional candidates that matched what the business needs, not just candidates on their database.

They were able to move swiftly and with real focus, because of the market position they have, and their ability to identify our new CFO ahead of the deal was a real benefit to the process.

Steve Travers, Chief Executive Officer, Pathways Care Group

I first met Rachael and Sarah at EquityFD a few years ago at a previous employer and recently turned to EquityFD when I needed to source a CFO for a buy and build in the Edtech space.

Rachael delivered a well thought through shortlist and enabled a hire to be made in in a timely and efficient manner.

I would be happy to recommend EquityFD. They really understand the specific  nature of the type of CFO that is required in a high growth,  higher risk business.
