The ideal candidate needed to have a background in Internal Audit or as a CFO. This requirement came with stringent criteria regarding the firms from which candidates had to come.

To broaden the pool of potential candidates, we explored various sources, including smaller company CFOs, business unit CFOs from larger firms, and current or former CFOs originally from the same region but now living elsewhere. By targeting these diverse candidate pools, we were able to develop and present a wider array of qualified candidates who could meet the client’s specific needs and support their journey towards a centralised structure and robust governance framework.
