Event production company, Corporate Events urgently needed to find a new Finance Director after their previous Finance Director of 14 years left the business.
“He was a really integral part of the business” said Andrew Ashley, Managing Director at Corporate Events. “It was a really tragic when he said that he wanted to go and I tried to persuade him to stay, but sometimes people just need a change of scenery.”
“Obviously, that’s some huge shoes to fill for any new Finance Director. When someone resigns you’ve got a window and it can become quite tricky if you don’t find the right person to replace them.”
“I thought Executive Recruit did a really good job. It felt like they were well-informed and clearly experienced in their own niche area. They made it really easy for us.”
- Working with Executive Recruit, Corporate Events found the perfect Finance Director to replace their previous one, who had been in the business for over 14 years.
- They needed someone who could fit in with a small team, in addition to their role as Finance Director.
- Corporate Events’ Managing Director found it to be a very smooth one-track process.
- They are extremely pleased with their new Finance Director, who they say seems to be really enjoying the role as well.
