Harvest CFO completes several successful placements

April 2016 – Harvest CFO has recently completed successful placements of financial leaders (CFO, VP of Finance and Controller) for several companies. For each of these companies, the financial leadership role is a critical tactical and strategic executive position working collaboratively with the company’s CEO/president, management team, PE firm and board to execute on the strategic plan of continued profitable growth.

Don Hillier, CEO of Harvest CFO states “for each of our engagements, Harvest CFO works with the company decision makers to create for their specific role a detailed ‘Blueprint for Success’ as to skillets, cultural aspects and keys to success, which is then deployed in our exhaustive sourcing process that ‘turns over every stone’ to target qualified individuals to create the best prospect pool. Through our rigorous prospect due diligence process we then identify the best candidates from this pool. For PE portfolio companies, we have as an added baseline requirement that all candidates must have prior successful PE portfolio company or similar experience to be considered. The individuals we place are highly skilled financial leaders that also bring solid ‘hands-on’ expertise working closely with operations and sales; have strong processes and systems skills and experience including with ERP; are highly skilled relationship builders both across the company as well as with key third parties including with the company’s bankers, customers, vendors, accounting and legal firms, etc.; and are true business partners with their company’s CEO and PE Firm. We also structure our economics to completely align our sole focus with our clients of bringing the best financial leaders to their companies”.
