Jeremy Kraft, Interim CFO – fdu Candidate

What do you look for in a recruitment service provider?

We have used many agencies in the past and had a specific brief in mind for our Interim CFO position. fdu were recommended to us by one of our investors – which is always a good sign – and we liked the fact that they specialised in Finance as well as Interim CFOs.

What did fdu offer beyond the expected value?

We had thirty Candidates apply for the position, but we went with one of the two excellent Candidates put forward by fdu. They had done all the hard work of search and selection, providing us with two certain options and just one decision to make.

How would you describe fdu?

Professional | Razor-sharp focus | Streamlined Process | Quality | Knowledgeable | Efficient

How did fdu work during the assignments?

Besides providing us with top Candidates, their approach was efficient and professional, resulting in a smooth process.

What impact has Jeremy Kraft had on your business?

A very positive impact. He is an extremely experienced CFO, but happy to roll his sleeves up and get stuck in. His ability to get under the hood of the business, so to speak, is incredibly valuable for a business at our stage.

What impressed you most about working with fdu and Jeremy Kraft?

We really appreciated fdu’s laser-targetted search on our behalf – which resulted in us hiring Jeremy who has been an absolute asset to our firm.
