Walter James



Financial officers are the backbone of any successful business. They must be strategic, hands-on, agile thinkers and have excellent communication skills. On top of the core technical expertise required, they must be able to inspire and drive performance with a wide range of cross-functional stakeholders and operate as a true business partner to the leadership team.

Walter James works with a number of executive-level finance professionals across both established and emerging markets. We have a market-leading performance and a track record in identifying passive diverse talent into leadership roles and are passionate about building high-performing and diverse teams. Due to our niche specialism and focused approach in this finance function, not only do we have an unparalleled depth of network in this space, we are at the forefront of new market trends and innovations.

As our clients require individuals that embrace "The Art of the Possible", we partner with talent that consistently pushes the boundaries of technology, AI, E-Commerce and NextGen Digital channels with a firm focus on the customer. As transactional finance and core accounting are becoming more outsourced, automated and ultimately a thing of the past, it requires modern finance leaders to put leadership, innovation, and collaboration high on their agenda to maintain performance and eliminate silos across a global organisation.
