Executive Assessment to underpin strategic hiring

Client Profile

The client was a multi-billion GBP private equity owned infrastructure operator with multiple sites across the UK and high levels of commercial and financial complexity. The company had experienced a period of exceptional growth and was now entering a more difficult trading period.

Client Requirement

The company had made a successful transition to new CEO and Chairman in the previous 12 months. The CFO appointment had, however, failed. As such there was significant internal and shareholder pressure to ensure the next CFO landed effectively. Having identified an appointable candidate, the client wanted an objective deep dive and thorough assessment to provide additional insight.

Our Approach & Methodology

Working with Miles Advisory assessment experts using our MAssess methodology, the candidate undertook a thorough leadership assessment process. This was supplemented with in depth trade and professional referencing. The client received a full written report and verbal briefing.


The combined assessment and referencing approach provided the client with a greater level of data and insight, which successfully supported  the onboarding of the incoming CFO.
