I was referred to Equity FD by a contact of our Chairman when we were looking to hire a new CFO to support me in the leading mobile payments technology company that I am founder and CEO of.

Robert at EquityFD grasped the inherent nature of the role and the type of candidate who would fit very quickly and worked as a true partner to me and the Chairman throughout the entire process. We have now hired a great new resource for the business.

I called Joanna and Sarah to ask for their help with finding a new CFO for one of our portfolio companies in the North East. Working closely with them, they ran a thorough and consultative process, listening carefully and challenging both me and to the CEO of the business to ensure that they understood what we were looking for.

When Amberjack needed a new CFO, I naturally turned to EquityFD based on my long standing relationship with them over a number of years. As Chairman, I was keen to ensure that we appointed a CFO that could operate effectively in a PE-backed business and able to bring the required technology and understanding to a rapidly growing SaaS business with a blue-chip client base.

Based on my experience of working with EquityFD in the past, I was confident that EquityFD could once again deliver against this mandate. Our CFO has now been with us for just over 3 months, has hit the ground running and is already making a significant impact.

I am grateful to Joanna at EquityFD for producing a quality shortlist and, ultimately, an excellent candidate that has worked out so well.
