For those of you who are CFOs or have interviewed candidates for the CFO position, what was the hiring process like? I am currently interviewing for a CFO position through a recruiter. The first interview was 1.5 hours long with the owner of the company, and the second (and final) interview will be 1 hour and 15 minutes with the owner and 4 principals of the company in a panel-style interview. It is my understanding that the recruiter was engaged for this search, but was not involved with the company prior to this search. Hiring a CFO based on less than 3 hours of discussion seems awfully quick to me, even using a recruiter that you trust. I am trying to determine what a "normal" process looks like, and how I can get comfortable with the company in this short period of time, or what I should ask for if I need more time to get to know the leadership & company culture. Any insight would be appreciated!
