Example assignments include
Investor contacted us at the early stages of the launch of an exciting new brand, fully funded, but pre-revenue.
Client had identified the need for an experienced and commercial senior financial executive to work across all aspects of the business.Specifics required included on–line start up and business planning/modelling.
Given the early stage of the business this was on an initial 3 month basis and for 3 days a week.
Help at Year End
Substantial, international,private equity backed, multi-site business. Strong CFO and Financial Controller in post, but extra support required at a senior level for a 6 month period to assist with year end, budgeting and tight cash management.
Acquisitive, European, private equity backed SME moving towards a shareholder exit.CFO too stretched to maintain the exit momentum as well as ensure full integration of new acquisitions. Solution was to hire an interim senior Financial Controller for an initial 3 months (extended to 6)
Shareholders in this privately held SME saw an urgent need to replace the Finance Director as the credit crisis deepened, the business moved away from its business plan and banking covenants were in danger of being breached. It was crucial that the new FD was available quickly and had extensive experience of dealing with difficult leveraged situations as well as being broadly skilled enough to deal with all aspects of the finance function ,given its relatively small size.
Initial hire for6 months given uncertainty.
Interim to Permanent Finance Director
Vacancy arose due to the sudden resignation of the Client’s Finance Director.. Additionally anew Financial Controller, who had not yet started, had just been hired and thus the finance function was in a state of flux.
Thorough but immediate process required to identify successor thus the role was initially fora 6 month interim but very much with a view to becoming permanent over time.
