High-growth recruiter La Fosse is pleased to announce the opening of a new practice specialising in Finance Leadership roles. The practice will be led by senior hire Olly Wakefield, who brings expertise gained over 11 years of Finance Recruitment experience.

Olly will build on La Fosse's already successful track record and extensive network in this area, expanding on existing relationships and forging new partnerships, particularly with Private Equity.

The team's core competencies include CFOs specialising in exits, including MBO, IPO, Buy and Build, M&A and Integration, as well as consulting with early-stage businesses to identify their first CFO. As well as CFOs, La Fosse's capability extends to placing Finance Directors and Heads of Finance, with international client and candidate networks.

Olly comments: "La Fosse has built an impressive reputation beyond the technology space with an established senior leadership practice, which has already made several high-profile Financial placements at C-Suite and board level. I was attracted to La Fosse's ambitious growth plans, and the opportunity to lead a team with so many resources, including a particularly strong network in the investment space."

Jack Denison, Head of Interim at La Fosse Associates, adds:

“The CFO practice will be another string in the bow of a thriving commercial leadership offering. We're excited to have Olly on the team, as he will allow us to continue providing our clients with a high-quality, joined-up service."

This announcement follows a series of other exciting developments for La Fosse, in addition to the opening of its NED and Chairman practice, and being ranked as a Gold Service Provider in the Interim Management National survey.
