Interim CFO FAQs

An interim CFO is a financial executive who is brought in on a temporary basis to provide financial leadership to a company. This can be due to a number of reasons, such as a sudden departure of the existing CFO, a planned leave of absence, or a need for additional support during a period of growth or change. Interim CFOs are often experienced financial executives who can quickly assess the financial health of the business and provide strategic guidance and support to the company’s leadership team.

The main difference between an interim CFO and a fractional CFO is the length of time they are engaged with a company. An interim CFO is typically brought in for a short period of time, usually several months, to provide financial leadership during a period of transition or change. In contrast, a fractional CFO is engaged with a company on an ongoing, part-time basis. Fractional CFOs typically work for a fixed number of hours per month and provide ongoing financial support and guidance to the company.

There are several reasons why a company may choose to hire an interim CFO. One common reason is to provide financial leadership during a period of transition, such as a merger or acquisition, a sudden departure of the existing CFO, or a planned leave of absence. An interim CFO can also provide support during a period of rapid growth or change, helping the company to manage cash flow, develop financial plans, and identify opportunities for cost savings. Additionally, an interim CFO can provide a fresh perspective and bring new ideas and strategies to the company.

Hiring a new CFO can be a complex process that involves careful planning and consideration. The first step is to identify the skills and experience that the new CFO will need to bring to the role. This may include expertise in financial planning and analysis, financial reporting, cash flow management, and fundraising. Once you have identified the necessary skills, you can begin the recruitment process by posting a job description and reaching out to your network for referrals. It is important to conduct a thorough interview process, including a review of the candidate’s qualifications, experience, and references, before making a final hiring decision.

The stage at which a company needs a CFO can vary depending on the size and complexity of the business. Typically, companies with revenues of £10 million or more will need a CFO to provide financial leadership and strategic guidance. However, the decision to hire a CFO should be based on the specific needs of the business and the goals of the company’s leadership team. If the company is experiencing rapid growth, facing complex financial transactions, or in need of additional financial support, it may be time to consider hiring a CFO.
