Chief Financial Officer Services

Recruiting the Best CFOs for Private Equity-Backed Companies.

Highly leveraged balance sheets. Pressure to drive EBITDA and working capital performance. Lean resources. CFO’s for private equity-backed companies perform against this backdrop every day. The best can add millions to your valuation at exit whereas a hiring mistake can hamstring your leadership team and leave you flying blind. Successful private equity CFO’s are a breed apart. We’ve built our entire CFO practice around recruiting these world class financial leaders for our industry-leading clients in private equity. Our placements all have demonstrated success working with world class private equity firms and generating top tier results for their investors.


Unique focus. Unique process. Unique results. That’s Ventura.
