    When we complete an assignment, we aggregate the compensation data we have collected across the search, and share it with the executive talent community from which it came. In this case, in Q4, 2019 we conducted a CFO search for a VC-backed manufacturing company in the Northeast.

    To support our talent strategy, we focused on the target talent pool comprising those who either currently or in recent past roles held titles of CFO, EVP, and a host of related senior operational roles in the finance and accounting functions within a diverse entity.
