CFOs and Controllers who Fit

The time you spend hiring employees to fill vacancies and upgrade personnel can easily turn into a black hole with poor results. Alternatively, Buxbaum HCS will introduce fully-vetted, qualified professionals so you will have the right talent on board within 3 to 6 weeks of our initial meeting.

Because we only place CFOs and Controllers, we know who’s out there and what it takes to get them to you. We are constantly on the lookout for the next great hire, and actively cultivate our extensive network of talent with exceptional backgrounds and capabilities. We may already know the perfect candidate for your position. But even if we don’t, we’ll know exactly what to do to find them.

Buxbaum Placement Approach

Why should Buxbaum HCS perform your search?


Most search firms will tell you it takes 3 to 6 months to place a high-quality CFO or Controller. It takes us 3 to 6 weeks.

"Contained" Search

We offer a hybrid fee model that’s mostly contingent and in small part retained search. We bear the majority of the risk, while you still have a little skin in the game.

Mature Network

We continually develop our mature network of talent. You’ll have access to a diverse, highly qualified universe of both active and passive candidates.

Culture and Chemistry

It’s easy to find someone who is a great accountant. The real test is finding that great accountant who has the right chemistry to be a cultural fit with your company.

Don't waste your time.

We won’t put a multitude of candidates in front of you. We only introduce you to the best, so you don’t waste your time, or ours.

We stand behind our work

We expect you’ll be happy with your new hire. But if you’re not, we’ll immediately replace them, no questions asked.
