Below from the CEO for the Kansas City PE portfolio company:

“We had an excellent experience with Harvest CFO for our CFO hire. We utilized Harvest to initially deliver an interim CFO and in parallel to conduct the permanent search. Harvest exceeded all of my expectations bringing highly qualified local interim candidates to the table within five days of our signing our agreement. The Harvest interim CFO candidate we selected has more than fifteen years of financial leadership and relevant industry experience and a strong track record of success in fast-paced, high-growth PE portfolio company environments. Her experience, cultural fit, local proximity and interest in our permanent role made her an ideal candidate. Harvest also quickly presented a slate of highly qualified CFOs with relevant industry experience and PE portfolio company experience for our permanent role. Harvest was a true business partner with us and our PE firm throughout our process including in the final offer stage. We communicated to Harvest in the beginning that a home run was to transition the interim CFO to the permanent role. This was the result as I truly felt that she was the kind of business partner I was looking for. She was the home run, transformative CFO we needed for the strategic plan we have for aggressive growth including M&A. The team at Harvest CFO has a highly communicative, consultative approach. Their deep expertise in the CFO role showed in how quickly they understood our needs currently and also for the success of our longer-term strategic plan. We had a very positive, successful collaboration.”
