La Fosse Executive is delighted to welcome Gareth Mason to our Executive Division, joining as the Head of CFO Executive Search. Gareth has extensive knowledge and experience in the field, having partnered with clients to deliver high-calibre C-suite and senior finance executives for private equity firms and their portfolios, privately-owned businesses, and PLCs. During his previous role at Page Executive, Gareth was a key member of the Executive Finance practice, cultivating numerous key client relationships, and his dedication to delivery has made him an excellent addition to the La Fosse Executive team. As part of his new role, Gareth will work closely with the rest of the team and will be instrumental in the growth of our Executive practice as we tailor our service to meet evolving client needs.

Speaking on his new role, Gareth says:

"I am hugely excited to be joining La Fosse as Head of CFO Executive Search. La Fosse is a well-established business with a fantastic reputation in the market, and the chance to help develop the senior finance offering alongside some very talented and experienced people represents a superb opportunity. I'm hoping to bring my 16 years of M&A and senior search to the fore in order to continue the superb client experience of partnering with La Fosse."

Head of CFO Executive Search and Interim Leadership Olly Wakefield also comments:

“We are delighted to have Gareth join the Executive division at La Fosse. With his deep knowledge of the senior finance landscape, he will greatly complement our existing service lines and client base, which focuses predominantly within the portfolio company ecosystem. Having worked with Gareth previously at Page, I am excited to see how we can continue to strengthen our reputation and disrupt the traditional CFO search landscape. Gareth is the latest functional head we have brought into the team, reflecting the sustained increase in demand that we are facing from our private equity clients, and he will partner closely with our other practices (NED/Chair, CEO, CTO, CMO, HRD) both in Europe and in the USA.”
