Digital Future's search strategy primarily involved building a target list of companies, many of which were portfolio companies of investment and private equity firms. Digital Future specifically targeted both large corporates and mid-market companies,recognising that professionals in these environments often move from roles such as CFO or Head of Finance. In addition, Digital Future focused on candidates with SaaS experience, particularly those with experience in building and managing new sites. Emphasis was placed on candidates with a proven track record in finance and controlling. This role reports directly to the CEO.


The search presented unique challenges due to the complexity of the market and the need for a hands-on CFO to drive initiatives effectively. The search was conducted on a confidential basis.

Successful Placement

Within weeks of starting the search, Digital Future provided a candidate map showcasing meticulously selected top-tier candidates. Despite market turbulence and fierce competition for exceptional talent, the company interviewed seven candidates, ultimately selecting three for the final round. Digital Future's commitment to understanding the client's unique needs played a key role in bringing the project to a successful conclusion within months of commencement, in close collaboration with the company.
