Harvey Nash Executive Search's dedicated CFO practice sources the highest calibre financial executives, wherever they are. With 40 offices around the world, our reach crosses international borders and extends across multiple sectors, enabling us to locate exceptional senior financial talent well beyond a client's own sector, region or country.

The role of CFO has been transformed in recent years from a narrow focus on finance, accounting and reporting – to a leader of change.

The CFO of today and tomorrow plays an important role in implementing the organisation’s overarching strategies and managing business risk, whilst at the same time continuously developing processes and control mechanisms within the department.

Over the last two decades, Harvey Nash Executive Search has supported companies with senior executive recruitment. We also act as advisors to leaders within the finance department, using competence assessments and second opinions.

We have built up a profound body of knowledge about how successful finance departments work, what aspects are critical for success as a leader and what the talent market for finance executives looks like. Our experience and our consultants’ solid background within this area make us a full-service partner to our clients.

There is widespread industry agreement, concluding that it is getting tougher to find and retain the most talented individuals. Not only are CFOs seeking new challenges more often, the pressures of globalisation, stricter accountability requirements and the demand for individuals with strong commercial instincts are constantly raising the bar for candidate experience.
