“CFO Search, Inc. located our CFO for us. The process was smooth, quick and pain free. These guys are true professionals who understand how to find great CFOs. They presented several strong candidates, all of whom we were highly qualified and impressive and we hired one of them. Unlike some experiences I’ve had in the past with other recruiters, this one was truly great!”
Bruce Thornton | Chairman of the Board | EOS Manufacturing Solutions

“We would have hired any one of their candidates for our CFO position. We tried to fill the position by using a retained firm prior to contacting CFO Search. CFO Search’s worst candidate was better than the retained firm’s best candidate. There really was no comparison.”
Lyle Small | President | CTI Inks
