CFO Executive Search

CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

We have appointed several hundred of the region’s leading CFOs and financial officers from ASX10 to mid-cap and small-cap organisations along with venture capital and private equity owned businesses across a plethora of industries.

CFOs must be proactive business partners, producing insights that drive business performance while thoroughly understanding key business drivers and possessing the requisite total return mentality to drive multi-year capital allocation strategies. Contemporary CFOs are also attuned to major trends including big data, AI and robotics as traditional finance roles are being redefined to focus on tech-enabled solutions.

Claude and the Johnson Partners team worked with PAG Asia Capital and the Board of Craveable brands on the appointment of our current CEO. The process was rigorous and the level of communication was far beyond our expectations. The appointee has quickly made a positive impact and driven material change across the team. The breadth and quality of the process, and the candidates Claude and the team were able to rapidly bring to the table were outstanding.”

SOME OF OUR EXECUTIVE PLACEMENTS


STRATEGIC GROWTH EXPERTISE

WE MAKE IT OUR BUSINESS TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR CLIENTS

  • BOARD REVIEWS

    Purchasing Boardroom Partners in 2020 – a leading Australian Board Search and Advisory firm across all industries – strengthens our commitment to helping organisations review their corporate goals within the boardroom to implement exceptional corporate governance. Founded by Jane Bridge in 1999, Boardroom Partners’ specialist services provided exemplary counsel regarding the structure, composition and operations of boards. Their expertise in reviewing individual performances, conducting skills analysis, implementing Chair and Director searches and advice on non-executive remuneration and assistance regarding shareholder relationships leverages Johnson Partners’ offering with substantial influence.

  • SUCCESSION PLANNING & MARKET MAPPING

    While an organisation may have a binder full of names, when a ‘succession event’ occurs, it is often unplanned. When done properly, passing on the baton barely causes a ripple. Prudent leaders begin the process almost from day one, starting with an assessment of their teams.

  • LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENT

    A board can only feel confident that they have the right team in place to execute their corporate strategy if they objectively evaluate their leadership team.

  • DUE DILIGENCE

    The difference between a smooth merger or a stumble is leadership, and the difference between good leadership and under performing leadership is due diligence. During critical business change, we partner with clients to manage unforeseen risks involving incumbent executives, as well as prospective appointments.

  • GROWTH SOLUTIONS

    We work closely with our clients to identify realistic growth options, managing transactions through to completion. Our extensive network of contacts enables a secure and structured progression journey, especially during periods when a firm is expanding rapidly and a number of new hires are coming on board.

    Ensuring candidate accuracy, our 30-Day Audit™ is administered by an independent partner to review the progress of each candidate search during the critical middle stage of the recruitment process. During this period, we customarily receive confirmation that we are successfully executing our strategic plan. When required, we accept suggestions regarding how to redirect the search strategy to ensure optimum success.
