Our consultants have guided some of our candidates and clients all the way through their careers: in some cases from first-time FD roles to FTSE CEO.
The CFO practice has successfully advised businesses of all sizes and lines of work. From FTSE100 businesses to start-ups (and in some cases pre-registration), we are able to appraise the value finance talent could add to your business and advise on how to find and secure it.
"We selected GRG Exec Search from a competitive pitch to scope and run a search for a CFO. This was a key strategic role as we scaled our business from a start-up to prepare for institutional investor engagement. GRG Exec Search ran a thorough search process and identified a panel of candidates with the right skills from both our own sector and across a broader field. Our final choice was among 3 or 4 candidates, each of whom was clearly well capable and so we had the opportunity to pick the person we felt would make the best overall fit.
GRG Exec Search coordinated with a range of stakeholders on our board and among our advisers and investors, and ran a very timely and professional process. We certainly could never have achieved the result without her."
David Inglesfield - Chief Executive Officer, IWP
"I have known and worked with the GRG Executive Search team for almost ten years and, without exception, they are the ﬁrst people I pick up the phone to when I have a recruitment need. The focus they place on relationships and understanding your business goes well beyond the normal ‘get your assignment, ﬁll it, move on’ mentality that so many other ﬁrms operate. Their ethos is about the long term, building conﬁdence and trust and delivering the goods time and time again so that you don’t need to use anyone else. I value that approach – I only ever need to make one call and I can be sure that things are being taken care of. They are an excellent team, always on hand and always willing to provide support and advice even when there is no beneﬁt to them, that’s what I respect and that’s why I enjoy working with them. I would not hesitate for one moment in recommending them, they genuinely are ‘best in class’."
Oliver Templar - UK CFO Coates
“GRG Executive Search has recently overseen a significant senior hire for my businesses. In the past, I have been extremely sceptical about the value of using a recruitment firm but GRG’s utter professionalism and dedication has completely changed my view. Not only did they headhunt the perfect candidate for the role but refreshingly their involvement has continued post the candidate's acceptance of our offer. This has ensured a smooth bedding in process, which has saved us both time and money.”.
