Going from CFO at a TMT firm to Boutique Investment Bank?
Would it be possible for the CFO of a TMT company to transition to a boutique investment banking firm specializing in that area?
Background: Currently I'm the VP of Finance at a major telecommunications/media company, basically serving as the CFO of one of their sub-divisions. As such, I'm responsible for everything from strategic things like long-range planning / M&A / operational execution (i.e. "making our numbers") to mundane things like month/quarter close and audit / controllership.
To be honest, I'm more interested in the former part of my job rather than the latter, which is why I'm asking this question... At the same time, there's a part of me that feels I'm better off, in the long run, to just stick it out on the CFO track and put up with the mundane parts of work. But before I overthink this, wanted to gauge from the more experienced people on this board, would this kind of transition even be considered by boutiques? Or are they really just looking for analysts/associates to mold?
