Focussing only on Senior Finance and Executive positions

Accounting and Finance

Andrew is a true expert in recruiting accountants and finance professionals across a wide range of industries, bringing unparalleled experience to his clients and candidates.



Andrew has extensive experience in the recruitment of General Managers and Chief Executive Officers, particularly in Commerce and Industry and the Not for Profit Sectors.


What our clients and candidates say?

Overwhelmingly, the positive was positive. It was a complicated process because the selection model we used was one that brought multiple stakeholders into the shortlist decision. Running 50 odd applicants down to a long-list of 10 is a difficult and arbitrary process. This is probably where I felt most exposed and most in need of Andrew’s judgement. Yet Andrew only had my guiding principles to go on.

This being a new role made it twice as hard to be precise with my instructions. Creating the shortlist seemed to work well and I think Andrew again took the pressure off me.

I found Andrew to have the right mix of initiative, pushing me, and letting the process we had in place take its course. Having Andrew do make contact with the applicants and ultimately unsuccessful applicants was important – something that made life easier for me.

I would like to thank Andrew for the effective executive search, support and assistance over the past two months. All in all, many thanks and a successful experience.
