The role of today’s finance and risk directors has become increasingly important in executive decision-making.

The recent economic crisis has highlighted an urgent need for improvements in fiscal integrity, corporate governance and risk management. These extraordinary challenges emphasise the importance of world-class talent in these two fields and have ensured the need for technical competence has remained paramount.

CEOs are looking for Chief Risk Officers who can explain complex risk issues in easily understood terms and relate them to business issues.

Organisations are integrating risk management into their business development, product development and strategic decision-making. Chief risk officers need more than the technical and management skills; they need strategic vision, to lead the organisation in implementing a risk management infrastructure and instil a rigorous risk culture.

The CFO is often seen as the Second-in-command to the CEO/MD, involved in operational activities, strategic planning and is integrally involved in driving revenue and profit. With our clients expecting more from their Financial Executives, recognizing ones with the right experience and cultural fit is not always easy.

We identify, track and recruit finance and risk executives with leadership skills as well as outstanding credentials across all industry sectors.
