Mike Richards
Mike RichardsCEO & Founder
Mike is the Founder and CEO of The Treasury Recruitment Company. He has been recruiting corporate treasury professionals for businesses globally for over 20 years. As such he has become known as the Godfather of Treasury Recruitment. What he doesn’t know about the World of Treasury Recruitment, pretty much isn’t worth knowing and when it comes to knowing who’s who, he’s like Rain Man!

He is a regular speaker and presenter at treasury conferences around the world where he focuses on a variety of topics relating to the world of treasury recruitment, the sourcing of treasury talent and personal branding.

Past speaking engagements include;

  • EuroFinance International Treasury Management Conference
  • AFP National USA Treasury Conference
  • Windy City Treasury Summit – Chicago
  • Keynote speaker at the Inaugural ACTA Austrian Treasurers Conference

Mike also hosts a very popular weekly podcast ‘The Treasury Career Corner’ that has been downloaded over 90,000 times by treasury professionals where he interviews global treasury professionals from across the globe about their treasury careers.

When he’s not meeting the next top Treasurer, or presenting at one of the world’s leading Treasury Conferences, he’s playing rugby at his local club, running around like a mad thing with one of his four children (yes four!) or escaping from both his ‘mad houses’ to the local pub for a beer!

Please contact Mike to discuss your career steps if you are a Senior Treasury professional seeking a new challenge or are generally looking for market advice and guidance.

Thanks go to The Treasury Recruitment Company team who found me this great role at Direct Wines.

After 3 months as a contractor I am starting today as a permanent employee and I couldn’t be happier!

The role, the people and the company are fantastic and I feel that I fit in really well here.

Thanks once again for making such a good match!

david-armstrongDavid Armstrong, Direct Wines
I consider myself extremely lucky to have had the opportunity to meet Mike and MR Team while looking for the next step in my career in treasury.

What distinguishes Mike from the rest is knowledge, experience, commitment and insight on what Treasury recruitment is all about.

He is able to establish a one-to-one approach, understand candidate backgrounds and client’s needs and find the best match, obviously to everyone’s best interest. I have appreciated the genuine interest, the honest feedback and the very interesting insightful conversations.

I will, or even better I have already, recommended Mike and his team to treasury professionals looking for the next big step in their career.

The Treasury Recruitment Company placed me in my current role and I love it.

Mike Richards was instrumental to turning my CV around in a way that gave me a proper opportunity to secure the position.

His excellent relationship with my employer also allowed him to introduce me into an already advanced recruitment process and still give me a fighting chance.

Thanks for finding me this great position.
