Governance functions and their associated skill sets have undergone significant change in the past decade. The importance of strong financial, reputational, and risk governance plus a progressive approach to human capital, culture, and diversity cannot be overstated. Ensuring best practices in an era of increasing and ever-changing regulation is critical. Governance skills also drive real, quantifiable value for businesses. Upgrading talent in these key areas is often a top priority for clients.
We have a long track record of successfully hiring senior financial executives specializing in audit, legal and compliance, tax and financial planning, and analysis. We regularly recruit Chief Financial Officers, Chief Accounting Officers, Heads of Finance, Heads of Tax, and other financial leaders.
We regularly place Chief Risk Officers and Heads of Operational, Market, and Reputational Risk. These roles need incredibly careful consideration as they require substantial and specific skills and the ability to play a critically influential role on the executive management team.
In today’s heavily regulated markets, identifying the right Chief Legal Counsel or Head of Compliance is critically important in helping clients strengthen their business, regulatory, and client relationships. Senior legal positions now increasingly impact a firm’s bottom-line by anticipating regulatory change, proactively moving to de-risk the business, and ensuring compliance around complicated contracts and changing policies. The Chief Legal Counsel – like the Head of Human Resources – has moved from the periphery to the core of most businesses.
We specialize in identifying and recruiting top global talent in Human Capital and People Resources. Increasingly HR Heads have a seat at the top management table and are being tasked with helping boards change corporate culture and drive values and behavior programs. They are often the member of the senior leadership team most attuned to the value that comes from having a strong employer brand and are at the forefront of efforts to drive employee retention, engagement, and productivity and modernize corporate policy.
