The Divisional Financial Controller will be responsible for the accounting, control and reporting activities for the assigned business segment within the EMEA Region. The Divisional Financial Controller leads and directs the proper financial governance of the division and will act as a trusted partner to the Head of Division and other senior decision-makers within this operational division of the EMEA Region.
