The CFOs remit continues to expand to become much more about judgement and commercial contribution. CFOs need to be as strategic as the CEO, provide robust challenge and support to commercial colleagues, identify opportunities to enhance value, and keep businesses safe at the same time. Savannah works with multinationals, mid-cap and emerging companies to recruit financial officers who can succeed in today’s complex environment.
Leaders in the finance function are positioned as strategic architects, providing value through anticipating the mid to long-term needs of the business. Savannah’s consultants understand the demands placed on the finance function, and source leading talent by drawing on our network of CFOs and senior finance leaders.

Jerry Randall, CEO Venture Life
Throughout history, economic downturns have had distinct characteristics, and while they are neither rare nor inexplicable in a market economy, they share some routine commonalities in both cause and consequence. The desire to assign blame is a common feature of the aftermath, as is the resultant change for which the most recent recession has acted as a powerful catalyst.
