Responding to an urgent call to fill a senior finance position
Identifying a Kenyan Chief Finance Officer within two weeks for a microfinance NGO in Kenya.
The sudden departure of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) in a major agricultural development microfinance NGO in Kenya drove the board members and CEO to contact Millar Cameron for urgent help sourcing a suitable replacement.
The challenge presented was that this role would need to be filled quickly in order to minimise the adverse effects within the company. It involved finding a skill set that is scarce within the local Kenyan market.
Millar Cameron developed a detailed understanding of the candidate requirements and built a tailored strategy to ensure that all routes in the market were explored.
Millar Cameron identified Kenyan talent, not only in Kenya, but also internationally, with substantial experience working with independent not-for-profit social enterprises with the mission of providing loans and training to rural smallholder farmers and agribusinesses.
Millar Cameron identified a shortlist for the role from candidates across Kenya and abroad. The interview process was carried out quickly with all logistics coordinated in house. An offer was successfully made and accepted, with the chosen candidate being guided through the resignation process. The whole process lasted for less than two weeks.
