Specific Opportunity Referrals

Earning Opportunities

If you learn of a specific opportunity to help any of your current clients or anyone else in your professional network – and you do not want to do the work yourself or are not the right fit for the need – please consider referring the opportunity to Patina. If we win the work – Patina will pay you a generous commission on the deal based on the billings it generates. This is a great way for you to earn money and you can count on Patina to do a high quality job for your contact.

You can submit your opportunity referral – and Patina will reach out to talk with you about the best way to proceed. It may be having you make the introduction – and we take it from there. Or you may decide to work along side us to help win the deal.

You’re eligible to earn:

  • 5% commission of collected billings from projects and interim leadership engagements you refer to Patina
  • 10% commission of collected fees from executive and management searches referred to Patina

There is no limit on the amount of commission you can earn. 

A few quick examples to illustrate how this works:


  • Linda Jones is a CFO for hire. She has a manufacturing client where she serves as CFO for 40 hours a month. They need to hire a new VP Manufacturing – so Linda calls Patina and we are able to do the search. The search fee for Patina’s services is $50,000 and Linda earns 10% – or $5,000 in commission.  
  • Bob Smith serves on a board for a medical device company. He knows they are struggling with a critical systems implementation and he asks the COO if she wants to talk with Patina about getting assistance. Patina wins the deal and it bills $100,000 – Bob earns 5% or $5,000 in commissions. He does not want the money due to his board role – so Patina donates the money to a charity of Bob’s choice.
