Adare International: Case Study

Adare International is the largest business within Adare Group, a £170m Private Equity backed Marketing and Secure Communication Service Group.

It has an international blue chip client base, supported across 30 countries by 330 employees.



Adare Group is on a significant growth trajectory. To support the next phase of aggressive growth, it needed to strengthen Adare International’s management team with a globally minded, commercially astute Finance Director.



The key was to find prospective candidates that had proven international experience (not just within Europe), previous exposure to multi-million pound commercial contract negotiations and first class reporting skills.

The brief was overlaid against the visions and values of the client, a business with an established Executive Team.

As part of the global search, we mapped the market and determined who to approach.
In parallel, a clear candidate brief on the client was prepared, encompassing who they are, and what they do.

This was easily relayed to candidates and helped layout the client’s ambitious plans for the next three to five years.

Working in close partnership with the private equity house,we deployed our unique results-based pricing structure to ensure that we shared risk with our stakeholders throughout the process.



New Street presented Adare International a short list of highly successful, results-orientated candidates that challenged the brief – from a Financially-led Commercial Director to a traditional CFO.

Ultimately successfully recruited a detail-orientated, international CFO with a track record and commercial acumen that compliments the established Board, who is capable of leading the financial team in a business quickly expecting to treble.
