It’s the new year and with that many organizations are expanding and hiring. But where are you finding your talent? In a marketplace where the unemployment rate for degreed professionals is at 2%, you have to be creative in sourcing new talent. It’s not always about posting a job, networking, or working with a recruiting firm. Join the Career Development Interest Group as Steve Wolff, Interim CFO for Baker Tilly Search Staffing, discusses his unorthodox path to his career and the successes he’s had along the way and additionally gaining a diverse skill set because of this. Learn how Steve has been able to overcome the challenges of identifying qualified talent in a tough market. Join the discussion in sharing and learning new and creative ways to find your next best hire! 




Steve Wolff, Interim CFO, Baker Tilly Search Staffing


His previous position was the Comptroller of A Safe Haven Foundation, a not-for-profit social business enterprise with a mission to solve the root causes of homelessness and poverty. Steve is a multilingual financial and corporate executive with 20+ years solving complex business problems in the U.S. and abroad. Steve has served as CFO, controller and general manager delivering results in profitable and distressed environments, entrepreneurial, family, private equity and large company cultures, and for mature and high growth businesses.

After completing his undergraduate degree at Emory University, Steve was selected as one of the first program directors to lead U.S. developmental assistance in the nascent states of the former Soviet Union. After several years as an expatriate executive establishing a track record of effective financial and people management, Steve attained his first CFO role while still in his 20's with a subsidiary of one of the largest global industrial gas manufacturers, Linde AG. Success in this role gave Steve a strong sign that his future lay in financial leadership, and he then sought to bolster his skills by earning his MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. From there, Steve followed a controller and FP&A-leadership development track through roles with top U.S. brands Allstate, Hewitt, and Trimble. This progression through multiple industries, financial disciplines and business challenges has helped Steve emerge as a multi-faceted leader with the proven ability to quickly assimilate into new environments and lead teams to higher levels of performance and impact.
