Our specialisms

We’re behind the finance engines of the world’s most disruptive tech firms.

  • CFO Hires

    Our job is to advise founders as they make their most critical hire. And to help CFOs land their career-defining roles. We’ve supported over 30% of Europe’s Unicorns find their finance leaders from Series A through to pre-IPO.


    CFOs can’t deliver an IPO alone. We have a proven track record in advising our clients broader organisational design from Series C to exit and helping them fill those roles with the talent they need.


    Our team understands that hiring a new CFO isn’t always the right call. We provide range of standalone projects such as 360 reviews of current senior finance talent, specific market mapping and mentoring introductions to grow and develop CFOs and their teams.

Partners with leading global investors

"Altima is our go-to search partner for VP of Finance and CFO roles across our portfolio in Europe. John and his team are not only incredibly well connected to the CFO community and thus can bring candidates to their searches, but they are also some of the best partners to steer founders through the tricky search phases, never losing sight of the ultimate goal to find the right candidate for the role. Their ability to clearly articulate the kind of finance leader needed for each company/stage/sector, and to become a storyteller and ambassador for their clients, are hugely valuable and differentiating in the market"

Sandra Schwarzer

Vice President of Talent at Index Ventures

"As an early-stage investor, many of our founders are looking to hire their first finance leader. Altima understand that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to finance leadership within our ecosystem and they are experts at cultivating strong relationships with the game-changers. They have a strong track record of running excellent CFO searches in our portfolio and are skilled at building great relationships with founders, guiding them through what can be a complex process with many stakeholders involved. Altima are our “go-to” search partner for CFO searches. Cannot recommend them highly enough."
