CFO for PE-backed Portfolio Company

CFO for PE-backed Portfolio Company

Digital Future placed a high calibre CFO for a PE-backed international software portfolio company operating in the SaaS industry. To support future growth, an experienced CFO with international experience was required to support the CEO and the wider organisation in implementing the defined expansion strategy. This key role reports directly to the company's CEO and is an integral part of the management team.

Private Equity Portfolio Companies


Digital Futures' search methodology centred on building a list of target companies, including portfolio companies of both investment and private equity firms, specifically targeting large corporations and mid-market companies, where individuals often come from positions such as CFO, VP Finance or Head of Finance. During the search, Digital Future also focused on candidates with SaaS experience, with the ability to initiate and manage new businesses.


The search presented unique challenges due to the market's complexity, requiring a hands-on CFO to drive initiatives forward effectively.

Successful Placement

Only a few weeks after the start of the search, Digital Future presented a candidate map with selected top candidates. Despite intense competition for exceptional leaders, the company interviewed seven candidates and selected three for the final round. Digital Future's commitment to understanding the client's unique requirementswas instrumental in completing the project successfully and on time.
