Case Study: Interim Chief Financial Officer - G08 University


The brief:

Our client (a GO8 University), required an Interim Chief Financial Officer to manage a large finance function and key stakeholders while a search process was underway for the permanent CFO.

Watermark then:

Provided a shortlist of appropriately experienced CFOs drawn not only from the Education sector but also with significant commercial experience to provide a wide range of skills and experience for this challenging role.

The outcome: 

The client chose the candidate with the most significant commercial experience to assist the University with its immediate process and competitive challenges during a period of great change within the sector. The candidate was a successful professional and cultural fit and seamlessly managed the transition to the appointment of the permanent CFO.
