A 45-year-old Atlanta-based nonprofit had just lost its CFO. The current CEO needed to bring in a Controller / CFO level professional to add an extra set of hands to their team while they looked for their permanent full-time employee replacement.
This CEO began using the Featured Candidate resource to explore some of the high-level available contract candidates through Accountants One. The CEO caught interest of a particular individual who was an Interim CFO at a reasonable bill rate. After filling out the contact form, our team quickly got to work.
Our team followed up with the CEO to learn more about their needs, business challenges, and company culture. Through deep listening and thorough evaluation, we were able to recognize what type of candidates would be a good match.
Our contract team identified a candidate that was a good fit for the position. By using a portfolio approach during the interview, our team got to know the candidate both on a technical level as well as on a personal level to really understand what the candidate was looking for and ensure she would thrive in this position.
