Leading Private Equity Fund


  • A leading Private Equity Fund based in Paris, London and New-York approached us in relation to a complex search for a Tax Director to be based in Paris or London.


  • The main challenge was that the client’s Tax Director was leaving, making the search very time sensitive and yet we still had to be very selective as they needed a top tier candidate, qualified in France but able to cover tax issues in multiple jurisdictions.


  • Our strategy was to target excellent tax teams in top law firms working on international matters.
  • Also, we looked at firms in which it is very difficult to make partner to maximise our chances of finding candidates who would consider moving in-house.


  • The successful candidate had 8 years of experience in a leading French firm and had a strong international background. To reach the successful outcome we had to convince the candidate that moving in-house was the right thing for his career and maintain his motivation throughout our client’s internal hiring process.
