Chair &
Chief Financial Officer (Interim and Permanent)

One Healthcare

Compass Executives were exclusively mandated by Octopus Group owned, One Healthcare to source an interim Chief Financial Officer for this private equity backed private hospital group. At the same time, Compass Executives were also tasked with running a concurrent process to find a suitable permanent CFO who could partner the CEO in executing the growth strategy.

Off the back of the success in sourcing the Chief Financial Officer, Compass Executives were also mandated with a Chair requirement, as a result of the original Founder moving on from the business. As such, a Private Acute Hospitals specialist would be required to lead the Board.

Operating modern and purpose-built private hospital facilities across the whole of the UK, One Healthcare have two sites in the South East and have significant growth plans.  As the organisation continues to grow, a CFO was required to build on the organisations success and implement strong, financial foundations from which the business could continue to expand from.

I worked with Kieran on the search for a new CFO at One Healthcare and found him a joy to work with. He was highly professional, efficient and had a great understanding of the market and the key players and individuals we could potentially attract. All the candidates were well briefed and came with a good understanding of One Healthcare and the challenges we faced. I would have no hesitation in working with Kieran again in the future.

Richard Evans, Former Chief Executive Officer


I recently worked with Kieran at Compass Executives to secure a new opportunity – initially on an interim basis, which has since become permanent – as Chief Financial Officer at One Healthcare. The process was efficient and effective, with Kieran balancing the frequency of communications with appropriate and relevant calls offering pertinent guidance at all times. He was very honest regarding the concurrent search being run for a full-time headcount during my tenure as an interim, and provided reassurance during what can be a stressful time. His knowledge of the role, company and wider health and social care industry was very good, and particularly his exposure to the investment community ensured that I was presented with a number of high-quality, relevant opportunities. This was the first time I had engaged with the services of Compass Executives, and can honestly say that the experience lived-up to their market reputation.
