Susie Clements

Managing Partner

Overview

Susie Clements is a partner in Heidrick & Struggles’ London office and the managing partner of the Corporate Officers Practice in Europe & Africa, responsible for the Financial Officers, Legal, Risk, Compliance & Government Affairs, and the Human Resources Officers practices across the region. For the last three years, she was the co-global head of the firm’s Financial Officers Practice.

Experience

Susie works closely with a broad spectrum of clients from large, publicly listed entities and multi-national corporations, to specialist businesses that are owned publicly, privately or are backed by private capital. She utilizes her deep understanding of functional talent hires to help clients build out and develop their senior leadership teams and capabilities, either with individual finance, legal, and HR leadership roles, or as a leadership team rebuild, often instigated by a relocation, a corporate carve-out or merger, or the advent of a new CEO looking to re-shape the culture, capability, and talent of a business.

For the last 25 years, Susie has successfully delivered individual hires, team build-outs, turnarounds, and talent pipeline projects across the finance organizations of her client companies, including both group and divisional CFOs, as well as specialist functions such as treasury, tax, controller, and audit & risk.

For ten years prior to joining Heidrick & Struggles, Susie successively led the CFO practices for two leading executive search boutiques. During this time she hired additional key ExCo roles including CEO, COO, CHRO, and sales and marketing directors.
