Company requirements of financial leaders are vastly different now than in the past given the complexities of business, a tough regulatory environment, and a global economy. Finance professionals must be grounded in the fundamentals of finance and accounting yet also proficient in management, analysis, and strategy. At The McCormick Group, we help organizations find finance professionals who are ready to play significant roles on leadership teams.

Our clients are public and private companies of a variety of sizes and across a broad range of industries. We also work with associations and not-for-profits. Representative engagements include chief financial officers, treasurers, controllers, directors of finance and administration, vice presidents of financial planning and analysis, and directors of budgets. Our expertise lies in understanding our client’s needs, identifying the top candidates, and recruiting the best professional for the position.


At every successful company, the management team relies on top-notch accounting professionals. The McCormick Group’s direct sourcing approach uncovers the top accounting candidates and introduces them to new opportunities. Moreover, we are adept at articulating a compelling case that helps our clients hire the accounting professionals who will help them meet their goals.

Our consultants work with a wide range of companies and organizations. We place controllers, chief accounting officers, internal audit and compliance professionals, department managers, public accountants in tax, audit, and consulting as well as tax and revenue professionals for state and local government.
