A great CFO can help a business change the face of the market. In an ecosystem that moves extremely fast, the role is also highly nuanced. What kind of experience should they have? Should they have led an exit before? Accountant, consultant or banker? Scale up or corporate?
That’s why finding the person isn’t easy, and why at Altima, we don’t take briefs – we help shape them.
Through our proven methodology, we help founders [ask and] decode these questions to find the right person from the right background, at the right time.
Our specialism is our strength. With an unparalleled CFO network and extensive knowledge of Europe’s tech ecosystem, we are in a unique position to guide and support founders and investors on the most critical hire they will ever make.
They typically engage us from post Series B, through to a pre-IPO round. Below is a selection of the clients we have helped over the past couple of years.
John and his team provided TransferWise with a superb pan-European shortlist resulting in an excellent CFO hire. Great knowledge, execution and transparency throughout the process.
Their knowledge of the CFO landscape within VC in Europe is unrivalled. Not only is John super well connected but he also possesses the knowledge to advise what size and shape of CFO is required for each stage of company. Very impressed.
Simply put, they know this space better than anyone else in Europe. Altima ran a first class process for Secret Escapes.
