Functional Specialization

Boyden’s Finance Practice is dedicated to the placement of CFOs and senior finance executives in functions such as financial planning and analysis, financial reporting, treasury, tax, corporate development, control/audit and risk. We serve companies ranging from small, entrepreneurial firms, many of which are private equity and venture capital-backed, to large multinational organisations across all sectors.
Associates within our Finance Practice team have expertise in recruiting senior finance professionals as well as specialised knowledge of individual industries. This combination enables us to deliver substantial added value and uniquely personal service.
We recognise that regardless of specialty, finance professionals must possess not only technical excellence, but also the business acumen to successfully lead and manage a business as a vital part of the senior management team. This requires individuals with strong leadership and communication skills, capable of exerting influence outside their direct areas of control.
Boyden’s extensive network of senior executives in finance as well as more specialised functions enables us to identify and evaluate the highest calibre individuals. We use rigorous research methodologies to identify new candidates whilst developing relationships with successful and emerging talent. Further, our unrivaled international reach allows us to search across borders and industries to find leaders with the skills and cultural fit to match your needs.
Good HR is contextual. The HR talent pool is very broad, encompassing generalists and specialists with different approaches gained in mature and developing markets and in organisations at varying stages of growth. With our global experience across regions, countries and organisations, we have deep knowledge of what works – and more importantly what doesn’t.
Occupying a key business role, the HR leader is tasked with both helping the organisation achieve its goals today and ensuring it is fit for the future. A strong commercial perspective, collaboration with other functional leaders and competitive foresight are essential to ensure – through strong personal impact – that HR delivers quantifiable value to the business.
Our standing in the global HR community and our approach to expert teaming at Boyden secures the best talent for our clients. With our insight into economic trends and developments in the HR function, we know how to assess candidates in a complex, global economy. We go beyond assessing professional experience to uncover how personal values and attitudes will resonate with a client organisation and lead to exceptional engagement and performance.
Whatever the function or role, our executive recruiting teams look behind the obvious to identify the best global talent for our clients.
As one of the most experienced firms in the industry, and with experts across sectors, we help our clients find the perfect fit they require to succeed at moments of significant strategic importance.
