THE RESULT

What our client says

“We reached out to Gillamor Stephens as we looked to hire a CFO. It was not a classic CFO profile as we needed proven experience of both debt financing and of operating in Africa. We worked closely with the team at Gillamor Stephens to refine the job specification, which resulted in a strong shortlist from which we have made an excellent hire. We then required a VP Software Engineering to lead and manage the continued development of our platform. Again, this was not a standard hire, needing software development, project management and infrastructure management skills. We interviewed a range of interesting candidates and were once again able to make an excellent hire."
