Chris Drake is a Partner within Investigo Executive, based out of the London office, specialising in retained Executive Search mandates within the CFO & Finance Practice.
With a career spanning over 20 years, Chris has been successfully recruiting senior finance professionals in London since 1998. During that time he also successfully helped build a well-regarded Accountancy & Finance recruitment consultancy and established his own boutique firm. With a values-based approach, Chris consistently exceeds expectations and believes that openness, honesty and collaboration are fundamental in all areas of business.
Typical retained mandates delivered by Chris are for CFOs and their direct reports throughout the UK and internationally, when required.
With a zest for life, Chris enjoys social occasions with friends and family, travelling to interesting parts of the world with his wife, reading prize-winning literature and has seen most movies made since the 90s! As a keen sportsman Chris has played rugby for most of his life, has scored a few “worldies”, feels at home skiing in the Alps and has completed a wide variety of cycling, triathlon and boxing challenges to raise money for charity. Father Time is catching up with him though and he now seems to spend more time on the physio table than on the pitch!
Chris is also a passionate, life-long supporter of England Rugby and Manchester United (and claims to have grown up in the North-West not far from Old Trafford)!
The Investigo Executive CFO & Finance Practice appoints ‘Head of’ positions and above including Group Financial Controllers, Finance Directors, CFO’s and COO’s across all sectors, in a range of organisations, both public and private.
