Client Responsiveness | Urgent Initial Engagements
First Time Engagement - Urgency
A newly appointed $2B business unit CFO at a $5B public company joined the business 90 days prior to its annual planning session. The CFO knew Access Point Partners, but his company's CHRO and Division HRBP did not.
CFO's North American head of finance position was vacant and during his 30 day onboarding review he determined that the company needed to recruit someone externally. He needed the new hire on board within 45 days in order to participate in the coming fiscal year budgeting process.
CFO recommended Access Point Partners to manage the search. Two client HR leaders conducted references on our consultant while reviewing the firm's functional expertise, access to Fortune 500 companies, and engagement strategy to bring high caliber talent under the urgent timetable.
Partnering with the CFO who was based in the midwest and HR leadership based elsewhere the firm engaged 70 prospects and presented three finalists at the end of two weeks. One was expedited to second and third round interviews plus assessment and referencing.
Successful candidate joined the company seven weeks after search launch, joining the senior leaderships' budgeting cycle with responsibility for her $1B NA P&L.
