Case: Business Finland

Case: Interim CFO

"The cooperation with StaffPoint Executive worked wonderfully: we got a competent and experienced Interim CFO in short notice."

The Client:

Business Finland is the Finnish government organization for innovation funding and trade, travel, and investment promotion. Business Finland's 600 experts work in 40 offices globally and in 16 regional offices around Finland. Business Finland is part of the Team Finland network.

The Brief:

The client had an urgent need for a Chief Financial Officer to lead and coordinate budget planning in a critical stage of the budget planning cycle. Quickly finding an experienced person with prior knowledge of financial leadership in public administration, who would be available for several months if needed, was essential.

Our Solution & Outcome:

After accepting the assignment, we promptly surveyed our pool of interim professionals and drafted a shortlist of potential people. After contacting, meeting, and briefing several candidates, we introduced the most suitable one to the client four days after receiving the assignment. We had assessed that the person meets the criteria we have for our interim managers: Strong professional expertise, ability to build trust with the client organization’s key people and his/her team in a short time, and a can-do attitude.

Client Testimonial:

”The cooperation worked wonderfully: we got a competent and experienced Interim CFO in short notice. The communication with StaffPoint Executive was smooth. We decided to continue the assignment longer than planned and ended up hiring the person for fixed-term employment.”
