Harvest CFO Also Delivers Best Value Proposition for PE Portfolio Interim CFO Needs

February 2019 – Harvest CFO, a recognized premier executive recruiting firm solely focused on the financial leadership role (CFO, VP of Finance) for Private Equity portfolio and middle market companies across the U.S. and across industries, delivers the best value for permanent placements and also for interim CFO needs.  Harvest CFO delivers best value by quickly providing the right interim CFO for the company’s specific needs and at a cost model that delivers high returns.  Harvest CFO employs the same “high bar” criteria utilized for our recruiting for permanent roles in that our interim CFOs must have relevant industry experience; prior successful PE portfolio company experience; and the skillsets and attributes needed to deliver high value for the specific need and success for the duration of the interim engagement.  We also work very hard to fill interim roles with individuals from the local geographic market thereby avoiding travel costs and commuting issues and increasing the probability of good chemistry and cultural fit. When the best outcome is that the interim CFO converts to the permanent CFO, our model results in a highly successful transition.

Don Hillier, CEO of Harvest CFO states, “In addition to our permanent placement engagements, we get a steady flow of phone calls from PE firms seeking highly skilled interim CFOs for their portfolio companies. We typically present the right individuals for these roles within 5 to 10 business days of the initial request. We do not take a generalist approach for our interim roles. Instead we apply the same criteria to source our interim candidates who are “spot on” and “spotless” for the interim role as we have with our permanent placements.  Our interim cost model creates tremendous value for our clients and enables us to attract and retain the absolute best talent for the duration of our interim roles. We have placed interim CFOs for several PE portfolio companies across the U.S.  Similar to our permanent placements, we are relentless to quickly deliver the best talent and the best economic value for the PE firms we work with.”

Harvest CFO, with headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, provides executive search for permanent placement as well as contracted financial leaders for interim roles.
