November 10, 2009 – Beyond the Bottom Line, an interim CFO firm for nonprofits and social enterprises, has launched an executive search and recruitment practice that will specialize in placing top-tier financial and accounting executives, such as chief financial officers, controllers and accounting directors. At a time when many nonprofits are evaluating future staffing needs and making plans to hire in 2010, Beyond the Bottom Line launches its executive search practice and Full Circle Search, a new offering that combines traditional search with financial and organizational assessments, financial systems and process refinement, new hire preparations and on-boarding services, and interim support, along with a thorough review of the candidates by a fully-vetted, nonprofit CFO. “For years I've watched nonprofit leaders struggle with the limitations of traditional search when looking for top-tier financial talent. The qualities they really want, expertise to run the financial side, experience to interpret data, wisdom to make accurate forecasts and gravitas to lead a team, can be tough to find, which is why we drill deep to understand the unique requirements and personally vet each candidate by active nonprofit CFOs to ensure the best fit,” said John Gillespie, president of Beyond the Bottom Line. Sharon Kittredje, managing director of Beyond the Bottom Line's executive search and recruitment practice, is a 15-year recruiting executive and consultant experienced in staffing, placement and search management. Based in San Francisco, she brings to the practice experience in both agency and in-house environments for hundreds of corporate and nonprofit clients over the years. Beyond the Bottom Line operates from offices in San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and New York.
