High-calibre FD candidates with strong cultural as well as technical fit

The situation

The recruitment of the finance director for high-fashion brand Linda Farrow, reporting into the owner and CEO.

Our approach

A retained executive search, full market-mapping, market research and on-boarding.


I worked with Ben on a retained basis to source a finance director for us. Ben was meticulous in his approach, really taking the time to understand us as a business, our challenges and vision for the future. He was able to provide a high-calibre list of candidates in a very short time scale. The candidates were both strong cultural and technical fits. Throughout the process, Ben kept me updated of the progress. I will absolutely choose to work with Ben again.
