Staffgroup, the parent company of international specialist recruiters Eurostaff and Earthstaff and part of the Cordant Group, has appointed Ildiko Elter as its global CFO.
Ildiko joins from management consulting firm Ally Management Group. Her previous experience includes almost five years at Clinical Trial Consulting, a pan-European specialist life-sciences recruitment group based in Switzerland, Germany and the UK where she was director of finance, HR, IT and administration.
In her new role she will be based at the Cordant Group’s Berlin headquarters.
Saman Tabrizi, Staffgroup’s managing director, commented on the appointment: “I’m delighted to have Ildiko join the board of Staffgroup. 2018 is a year of growth and maximising the potential of our processes, systems and staff. Having Ildiko join us, with her experience, is a sign of intent and I have no doubt we are only going get stronger and stronger throughout Europe.
“Like any business that wants to be at the top of their game, strategic decisions need to be made and then executed well. Ildiko will play a key role in these processes over the coming months.”
Ildiko will work closely with Saman and the other members of the Staffgroup board in Berlin, and is looking forward to getting started.
She said: “Staffgroup is a growing international company and that’s what really attracted me to the role. I’ll work closely with all areas of the business with the aim to take the organisation to the next level, with regards to performance, development and results.
“I spent time with the management team at the end of 2017 and the values, team spirit and dedication to succeed was great to see. I believe that my experience and knowledge in making step-changes to improve processes, systems and efficiency will help Staffgroup develop and I’m looking forward to working with Saman and the rest of the Staffgroup family.”
Stephen Herniman, Staffgroup’s current finance director, will leave the business at the end of June after a handover period with Ildiko.
