Hear from the Client
“Collaborating with Privatal has been very pleasant. They have an active network of relevant CFO-Candidates for PE Portfolio companies in the DACH market. I highly appreciate their good understanding of candidate profiles; fast delivery; responsiveness; and professional communication. We will definitely come back to Privatal for future CFO recruitment”
Daniella Lippert, HR Partner, EMH
EMH Partners backed Cleverbridge provides a leading e-commerce technology for subscription management, billing, and invoicing to globally operating software companies. Since 2005, cleverbridge has grown consistently to become a leading global player. Its innovative platform technology allows clients to optimise their CLV through higher checkout conversion rates, lower churn, and higher AOVs.
As a primary acquisition, the finance function wasn't up to private equity standards. EMH were looking for a permanent CFO to lead the growth of the business. While the perm. search was ongoing, Cleverbridge needed an interim to build up the finance function while bridging the gap.
Our proprietary tool suggested that EMH may need strong software interims; so after introducing a CFO-profile, we were asked to help with the interim search.
One week after starting on the interim search, our CFO signed the contract. He was later extended.
Hear froM the Candidate
"Privatal have now placed me in my third consecutive CFO Role. Their exceptional expertise in the Private Equity world meant that with each new search, I had multiple interviews lined up in just days.
Their DACH team, led me very competently through five parallel processes. He kept me constantly informed throughout and was an invaluable party for me. Within 1 month of embarking on the joint search, I signed an Interim CFO role with a superb PE House. I can clearly recommend Mark and Privatal from a candidate perspective."
