Avon Rubber plc
Divisional Finance Director
Hanover Fox were engaged to source a Divisional Finance Director for Avon Dairy Solutions, a division of Avon Rubber plc with a turnover of £50m within the wider group revenue of £150m. The company focusses on the design, development and manufacture of high technology milking point equipment for the global dairy industry.
With revenue and profit growing and brand awareness increasing, the role needed to have strong commercial financial experience as well as being able to support further organic growth and potential acquisitions.
The specification and briefing of the organisation, role and candidate was a very good process, was very proactive, and took a lot of pressure off us.
There was a good sifting of candidates throughout the process.
At the 1:1 longlist meeting between Avon Dairy Solutions and Hanover Fox, I was confident they had the right type of people in the mix, and the right quality. The attention to detail in the meeting, and in all communications, was excellent.
Some of the first interviewees had been a bit ‘green’ and rusty, and would have benefited from some coaching prior to interview. Their interview preparation could have been helped.
“I was extremely pleased with the outcome, and feel we have secured a candidate who will add real value to our organisation”.
In summary, Hanover Fox understood our requirements, sifted the candidates very well against an accurate job specification, and put candidates in front of us that could add real value to Avon Rubber.
