I was referred to Robert at EquityFD by my investors as I needed to add a new CFO to my team.

Robert was a great partner, working very closely with me to understand the brief and ensuring that I was given a range of candidates to consider from which I was able to select a very successful new hire.

Tom Wood, CEO, The Boundary

I have worked with Equity FD before and introduced them to the founder and investor to assist with hiring the first full time Finance Director into QV Systems, an exciting growth fintech where I am an Non Exec Chair.

Robert took the brief in his stride and offered constructive advice on the process to deliver candidates meeting the core criteria with potential to add more value as the business scales up.

Steven Clarke, Chairman, QV Systems

We asked Robert from Equity FD to help with the recruitment of a new CFO into one of our portfolio businesses. They had been looking for some time but had not yet found the right match for this key position. Robert grasped the brief firmly and ran a thorough process enabling both us and the business to confidently select the new hire from a fresh and high quality shortlist.

Guy Blackburn, Portfolio Partner, Mobeus

Equity FD stands out in the market against others, especially when you have Sarah Hunt, who takes time to understand the culture and softer points of our organisation and what we are trying to achieve. Robert Draper has a knack of engaging with his clients almost planting himself into our own organisation and credit to the team, that given the right steer and scope, the output from Equity FD is efficient, fit for purpose and rewarding.      

Ashvin Patel, Group Finance Director, Melrob

Joanna Adolph at Equity FD ran a smooth , professional and energetic process for me when I needed to hire a new CFO for my business.

She guided me through every step of the way , keeping me informed with progress and delivered a great shortlist from which I was able to select my new hire.

Terry Doherty, Chief Executive Officer, Doherty Associates

Equity FD listened to our requirements and efficiently developed an excellent shortlist of candidates. We are delighted to have appointed a strong CFO/COO for our growing firm.

Oliver Thomas, Managing Partner, Expedition Growth Capital

I have known EquityFD for some time and they have not disappointed. Robert worked with Volpi and one of our investee companies, a leading tech enabled healthcare services business, to recruit a CFO.  It has proved to be a very successful hire!

Crevan O’Grady

I was referred to Joanna Adolph at Equity FD by a contact of mine when I wished to recruit a new CFO to partner me in the business where I am CEO which is currently going through a period of sustained growth and inward investment. Joanna worked tirelessly on our behalf, running a well-informed, consultative and thorough process which  ended in a very successful hire.


Mike Butler, CEO, Symprove

I have worked with Robert Draper at Equity FD a number of times over the past few years and thus turned to him again to hire a key business partner to me in the PE backed business where I am CFO.

Robert delivered a swift process and a good selection for me to consider at shortlist stage which enabled the hire of my commercial FD to run smoothly.

I look forward to working with Robert and the team at Equity FD again.

Kevin Budge, CEO, GCI

I was originally referred to Equity FD by a business contact of mine and was impressed with their focus and the relevance of their approach.

When one of our technology businesses needed a new CFO I introduced them to Equity FD and they were engaged for the assignment.

The company was going through a fundraise and had recently changed its leadership team, requiring a very complete but rapid recruitment process to be carried out. This was duly delivered by Robert at Equity FD who ran an excellent process resulting in a successful hire.
