PHILADELPHIA (May 29, 2008) – CMF Associates, a provider of transaction- and transition-focused financial and management advisory solutions to private equity, middle-market and small cap public companies, today announced an enhanced financial executive search offering specializing in middle-market CFOs and controllers. CMF has hired Kathryn Kehoe as senior director to manage the executive search and recruitment operations.
“For years, we have been on the ground providing consulting and temporary services as interim CFOs and controllers, and we understand the operational and financial acumen required in today’s rapidly changing, global, and often highly levered environments,” said Thomas Bonney, founder and managing director, CMF. “CMF’s executive search services are a natural extension of our role as the middle market’s “special forces” and we’re excited to have Kathy on board to lead the charge.”
As senior director, Kehoe will lead all aspects of CMF executive search, including the recruitment, assessment, and selection of middle-market senior financial executives nationally for CMF clients. CMF’s executive search capability complements its interim transaction- and transition-related resources and “911” financial emergency support, providing middle-market companies with a full array of talent solutions to increased and often unexpected talent shortage and financial expertise challenges.
“Our executive search offering follows CMF’s proven financial consulting services delivery model, and includes a preliminary ‘deep dive’ during which we evaluate and clarify desired roles and responsibilities, as well as required financial and operational skills, behavioral skills, and leadership characteristics for each position,” said Kehoe. “In addition, we can provide clients with expert interim CFO or controller resources to keep their financial functions current and on track during candidate searches.”
Kehoe comes to CMF from medical and personal care product manufacturer Langer, Inc., (NASDAQ: GAIT) where she was senior vice president, of U.S. operations and strategy and a corporate officer. Previously she was president of Kehoe Associates, a consulting firm providing HR, organization development, and recruitment consulting services to the middle market in a variety of industry sectors. Her experience also includes senior human resources and operations positions at NovaCare Inc., Bristol Myers Squibb Company, and Johnson & Johnson. She holds a B.S. in management and finance from Arcadia University.
