Strogoff Consulting recruits and helps on-board senior-level financial management and accounting department staff.
We are not a typical "recruiting firm." We recruit only when one of our consulting clients has a need; hence, we recruit for only one client at a time. We take charge of the entire recruiting process and expend the effort necessary to understand your needs and your distinct culture. Of equal importance, we limit your time to telling us your needs at the outset, selecting interviewees from among only two or three applicants on whom we present written briefs, and interviewing the final set of candidates. Our goal is to obtain the most qualified person who fits within your firm at the lowest reasonable rate.
Our services include:
Mary Anne McKernie, Financial Staff Recruiter
To non-financial staff, the telltale signs that something may be amiss are easily obscured, which is why it’s important that someone who understands accounting procedures hire accounting staff.
Mary Anne McKernie has been closely tied to the A/E industry since 1981 as both a management consultant and a recruiter. She brings her 25-year background developing custom accounting software for design professionals to her knowledge of what type of financial professionals a firm requires and how best to recruit them. She has worked with financial personnel at all levels in organizations ranging from 10 to 300 employees.
Mary Anne is adept at working with firms’ management and accounting departments to quickly assess the complexity of a company’s accounting operations and to recruit personnel at the appropriate skill level. Her success in recruiting CFOs, Controllers, Accounting Department Managers and senior bookkeeping staff is based on her understanding of how design firms operate, her in-depth understanding of accounting procedures, and her keen insights into people.
From the CEO of a lighting design firm:
I appreciate your tireless efforts to find the best person for the our team. Veronica seems to be the perfect fit. We had a long and enjoyable meeting with her this afternoon and definitely feel that she has the talents, skills, personality and attitude that we need. Thank you for your guidance and assistance.
From a recruited employee:
After three months, I continue to love my job and am very fond of my boss. He, too, is quite fond of me and calls me his bulldog: I have a watchful eye on the bottom-line, and I am a tough negotiator when it comes to saving him money. Mary Anne, I continue to be filled with gratitude for assisting to place me at the firm. Thank you.
From a candidate:
I appreciate the way you conducted the whole interview process, from introductions, to your questions, to setting up the "Meet the Employer" interviews. Thanks
