La Fosse Associates are pleased to welcome Darren Elton to the board as our new CFO, based at our London headquarters.
Darren joins the company with an impressive track record, starting at EY then Sainsbury’s before moving into recruitment, first at Allegis and most recently Twenty Recruitment (where he worked as the Group COO & CFO). He has built and led finance teams in high-growth environments and will be instrumental in helping to develop our capability further as we expand our service lines.
Darren has also delivered a breadth of commercial, operational and strategic programmes, allowing him to bring a broader commercial skillset outside of finance which will help the company deliver on its strategic objectives.
Speaking on his new role, Darren says:
“La Fosse is an incredible organisation with a rare culture, demonstrated by all team members. The business has so much of which to be proud, including its track record of exceptional customer and candidate care, its ‘best place to work’ awards, community work and fantastic growth record. I am so excited to be joining this team for the next stage of an amazing journey.”
CEO Ollie Whiting also comments:
“The board feel that Darren is a great fit from a number of different perspectives. Crucially, everyone on the board also feel he is an extremely strong cultural fit. Darren is passionate and enthusiastic about what he does; sets high standards and is also really supportive. He works really well with sales teams and people at all levels, and is as open and keen to develop as any of us. In summary, we are delighted to welcome him to the La Fosse team.”
