Harvest CFO Places CFO for Private Equity Portfolio Company

January 2014 – Harvest CFO placed Philip Ridolfi as the CFO for private equity owned NAS Recruitment Innovation (NAS) headquartered in Cleveland, OH.  Private equity firm Stone-Goff Partners LLC, headquartered at Madison Avenue, New York City, the majority equity owner of NAS, is a private equity investment firm that acquires and builds companies in the lower middle market. Stone-Goff was referred to Harvest CFO by another private equity firm headquartered in Columbus, OH. Stone-Goff needed a CFO with prior successful private equity portfolio company experience as well as other specific needs that are unique to the life cycle of NAS.  Harvest CFO guided Stone-Goff through the Harvest CFO due diligence process to properly frame and build the “blueprint” for success in the NAS CFO role.  Using this “blueprint,” Harvest CFO proceeded through its selection process and after completion of due diligence on several Harvest CFO prospects, presented Philip Ridolfi as the CFO candidate who was “spot on” and “spotless” for the NAS CFO role.  Laurens Goff, Founding Managing Director of Stone-Goff, states, “We engaged Harvest CFO based on a recommendation from another private equity firm.  Harvest CFO did an excellent job of ascertaining our specific needs for the NAS CFO role.  Harvest CFO provided us with well documented and reliable CFO candidate information and worked closely with us toward a successful placement. Phil Ridolfi brings the ideal skill sets we need in our CFO role to continue to execute our strategy.   He has been a great addition to our management team.   We are very pleased that we turned to Harvest CFO for the NAS CFO role and we certainly plan to utilize Harvest CFO for future CFO role needs for our portfolio companies.  We would not hesitate to recommend Harvest CFO to private equity firms seeking skilled financial leadership for their portfolio companies.”
