Over the last two decades, John has helped some of the world’s most successful startups build their senior finance leadership to accelerate growth.
He started his career helping tech pioneers as leader of the CFO practice of a global search firm. It was then when he saw the opportunity to do things differently. Altima was born out that vision – an agile, entrepreneurial search firm, specifically designed to serve tech businesses at crucial stages of growth.
At Altima, John has led over 350 CFO searches for some of the highest profile VC-backed and private equity funded businesses in Europe. In his spare time, John plays rugby and cricket at competition level, with mixed results. That sits nicely alongside the slightly less competitive pastime of enjoying family life.
Rabia leads the search team at Altima, driving the successful execution of all assignments.
Starting her career in a boutique, consumer specialist search firm, Rabia went on to work in the Consumer & Digital practices for two of the world's largest Executive Search Consultancies. At Altima, she builds on that experience to oversee a search process that is rigorous and focused, but also personable and human.
Over the last two years, Rabia has worked closely with John to deliver over 50 CFO searches for some of Europe’s most exciting scale-up businesses. Rabia has an MSc in Comparative Politics and a degree in Politics and History from the London School of Economics. When not working, she can be found baking for her friends, nieces and nephews, or exploring the world.
