Boomerang SA is a business process outsourcing services provider serving a number of verticals and industries, from retail to insurance.
We approached The FD Centre because, although we are still a growing company, we needed the expert advice and assistance of a financial director. I specifically wanted to improve our financial decision making and bolster our executive management team, and we felt that a part-time employee would be ideal for the role, as the amount of work didn’t warrant a full-time appointment.
I had been introduced to The FD Centre some years previously, so I thought it would be a good time to revisit the contact. Although we were initially introduced to another candidate, we chose to work with Paul Oosthuizen because he has knowledge and experience of our industry. I think this ability to select who you work with is a definite advantage.
Our relationship has grown considerably since Paul first came on board, and his scope has evolved and broadened significantly. He is also more involved in the business. As hoped, he has become an important part of our executive team and decision making. He’s very pleasant to work with and his skills are of an excellent caliber.
I think that The FD Centre’s model makes perfect sense for companies that need the skills of a financial director, but on an ‘as and when’, rather than full-time basis.
