“Unlike other service providers, fdu quickly came up with a selection of Associates for me to choose from. Each Candidate was able to carry out the required duties but most important was the personality fit with the Abrams team. The whole process to secure the right Finance Controller was smooth and efficient. fdu remained engaged and accessible to monitor progress, and supported me and the Financial Controller. fdu coached me through the selection process and provided me with more face to face time than I had expected; a collaborative service provider. I highly recommend fdu.”
