Chief Finance Officer Spain Copy

Financial Services




After searching for a Chief Finance Officer for over 6 months, we were approached by a financial services company operating in Spain to support their recruitment with direct headhunting. Due to the aggressive growth stage of the Spanish operation and cultural aspects, the client was having difficulty in identifying and attracting the right talent for this critical role.


Given the dynamic growth of the European business, our client needed to appoint a qualified candidate with vast international experience and multicultural team management.

Our research team in Madrid was able to identify and attract talent across Europe with experience in this sector. They contacted direct and indirect competitors with a keen eye for professionals demonstrating adjustability and flexibility through international moves and regional finance roles.


Within 2 months of taking on this challenge, our team was successful in finding the right candidate. As our client was based outside of Spain, and candidates identified also in different locations around Europe, we supported organising both virtual and face-to-face interviews to a time sensitive schedule. Our Executive team also provided support and advice throughout the assignment in regards to local compensation packages, relocation and integration process, and references.
