Bond & Company combines “smarter” hiring processes with an in-depth knowledge gained over the last 30+ years of placing professionals in the finance, treasury, and pricing functions in organizations ranging in size from large to small.

By Working with Bond and Company, You Can Dramatically Improve the Probability Making of a Successful Hire.

  1. Your success depends in large part on how effective the people are who work for you.
  2. If you need to go outside your organization, we can work with you using our customized methodology – Results-Based Recruiting – that will take less time and help you hire someone who will produce the results desired for you and your company.
  3. The process most recruiters use is based on cost considerations. It rarely results in the hiring of someone who will make your job easier.
  4. We utilize a proven process – Smarter Search – that starts with a “definition of success” to help you make a great hire.

Over the years, the processes employed by Bond & Company have resulted in over 50% of the people we have placed remaining with that organization five years or more.

And nearly 100% of those individuals have been promoted at least once. We can show you documented case histories of the quantified accomplishments our placements made to their organizations, and the reasons why they were promoted. Here are a few examples:

  • We placed a new controller at an undercapitalized company with sales of $30 million. Once in place, he reduced inventories by over $1 million, while increasing on-time order fill-rate from 85% to 90%.
  • We recruited a smart treasurer for a growing company who helped increase international revenues from less than 10 percent of total sales to over 30 percent in four years.
  • We placed a pricing operations person who helped his new employer cut the average time to respond to RFPs by over 50 percent, resulting in a 10 percent higher win rate at a better level of profitability.

“If I had known it was going to be this easy, I would have called you a long time ago.” – Corporate Treasurer & Divisional CFO, Fortune 500 Company.

Richard R. Bond founded Bond & Company in 1986 as a boutique financial recruiting firm. Over the last 30+ years, the firm’s specialties have been in treasury, finance, and pricing recruiting. Initially, Bond & Company worked with very large entities such as PepsiCo, Marsh & McLennan, and the treasury consulting practice of PwC.

Recently, much of the firm’s work has been for smaller companies that need more finance and treasury support and services as they grow.  Many of his clients are small to middle-sized companies that are either privately owned or held in portfolios of private equity firms. Over the years, Bond has seen the role of finance in many companies change from one of mere recording and reporting into that of a strategic partnership with management, helping the businesses to improve their profitability and grow more rapidly.

Bond has his undergraduate degree from Lehigh University and an MBA from Wharton. He worked for Seagram for 11 years and ran a family business for two years before moving into recruiting.

Bond is married, lives in New Canaan, and has three grown sons. He has been active in community affairs including Boy Scouts and serving as the President of the Board of A Better Chance of New Canaan.

With focus in three areas, we have the ability to fill a role quickly with what appears to be limited effort, while others struggle over a long period time (and probably don’t do it well).
