Over the last two decades, John has helped some of the world’s most successful startups build their senior finance leadership to accelerate growth.
He started his career helping tech pioneers as leader of the CFO practice of a global search firm. It was then when he saw the opportunity to do things differently. Altima was born out that vision – an agile, entrepreneurial search firm, specifically designed to serve tech businesses at crucial stages of growth.
At Altima, John has led over 350 CFO searches for some of the highest profile VC-backed and private equity funded businesses in Europe. In his spare time, John plays rugby and cricket at competition level, with mixed results. That sits nicely alongside the slightly less competitive pastime of enjoying family life.
Mike helps Altima find and attract the very best talent from around the world building long-lasting client relationships along the way. Before Altima, he worked for a digital and technology executive search firm, leading on a range board and non-exec searches in corporations and VC/PE portfolio companies across Europe.
Mike grew up in Germany, eventually returning to the UK to study International Business at Nottingham Business School, before completing his MSc in HR Management at Oxford Brookes University. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf (albeit badly).
Scott supports the Altima team with research, analysis and insights on the European VC tech ecosystem. His work ranges from the study of industry trends to candidate market mapping for our clients.
Scott graduated from the University of Exeter with a BA in Human Geography. When not at Altima, Scott prides himself on being an exceptionally average footballer and skier.
Jack supports the Altima team in their continued drive for excellence. He ensures every mandate is delivered as effectively and efficiently as possible. Prior to Altima Jacked worked with two boutique recruitment firms.

Outside Altima, Jack is an avid reader of Politics, History and Current Affairs, and a long-suffering supporter of Liverpool FC.
