Leadership coach vitally needed for new CFO


Leadership Coach needed to mentor new CFO

A PE firm principal came to us with a critical need for a CFO consultant for their manufacturing portco. Since their seasoned CFO left the company around a year ago, a young, less experienced CFO entered the leadership role. Having never been a CFO before, the firm needed an executive coach who could provide the young CFO with leadership training and serve as a mentor to them to help them get up to the speed of a C-suite role. The firm urgently needed someone with experience as a CFO in a PE-backed company, knowledge in the alcohol beverage manufacturing field, and who was willing to be onsite for 20 hours a week.

BluWave finds exact-fit CFO consultant with industry expertise

Leveraging our founder’s 20 years in private equity, we have extensive frameworks for assessing PE-grade executive coaching needs. BluWave utilizes technology, data, and human ingenuity to pre-map, assess, monitor, and maintain deep pools of executive coaches that uniquely meet the private equity standard. We interviewed the PE firm to understand their specific key criteria, and then connected the client with the select pre-vetted executive coach from our invitation-only Intelligent Network that fit their exacting needs.

Firm confidently engages PE-grade CFO consultant

Quickly after the initial scoping call, the PE firm and portfolio company were introduced to two PE-grade executive coaches that specifically worked with CFOs in the manufacturing industry. The client selected their ideal choice, engaging an exact-fit exec coach with a consumer manufacturing background, multiple referrals from PE-backed companies, and availability to travel to the needed location. The PE firm was able to confidently move forward with the new CFO knowing that he was getting the training he needed to get caught up to speed.

“BluWave was quick and diligent with our need and provided us with two great executive coach options, both of which had the exact background and expertise we were looking for.”
