"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."

Kristo Käärmann
Founder and CEO

"Their knowledge of the CFO landscape within the tech ecosystem is unrivalled. Not only are John and his team super well connected but they also possess the knowledge and experience to advise what size and shape of CFO is required for each stage of company. Very impressed."

Markus Villig
Founder and CEO

"Altima led a CFO search for Made.com at a crucial time in our growth phase. John and Rabia were exceptional throughout. They correctly challenged our assumptions and helped us arrive at a place where we have hired a fantastic CFO for our business. They were highly responsive, very knowledgeable on the European CFO landscape and clearly have both the trust and ears of this network. They were also great fun to work alongside, we’ll miss our weekly update meetings!"

Philippe Chainieux

"We approached Altima with an idea of the kind of CFO we needed – someone with tech expertise who had tackled similar challenges in a similar business. With their outstanding knowledge of the market, Altima promptly challenged our assumptions and transformed our brief to support the future of the business. Working at an incredibly fast pace, they secured an exceptional hire – a star female CFO that exceeds our expectations and sets us on a sure footing for our next stage of growth."
