CFO - PE-Backed Market Leading Business Services Company
Our client is a market leading business services company offering services to the building and construction industry. The company has grown significantly through acquisition since being acquired by PE and is now market leader within a number of its specialist service offerings. Due to this growth, the business is looking to capitalise on further opportunities in its market and requires a proven and experienced PE CFO to lead the integration of acquired companies onto its platform and ultimately the exit for the business which will create significant incremental equity value for themselves and the other shareholders.
We are looking for a highly ambitious, energetic, qualified accountant with experience of operating as a standalone PE FD or strong number two in a PE-backed business. Business services experience would be ideal but we are open as long as you are an experienced PE operator. You will have a demonstrable track record in the development and application of KPIs with excellent financial and management reporting skills. A strong operational understanding with expertise in change management and integration ideally. You must be highly analytical in nature coupled with an informal and dynamic style with a willingness to roll your sleeves up to get into the detail and get things done. You will have the desire and ability to add value whilst also challenging colleagues in an effective and appropriate way to facilitate good decision making. A real team player who can work effectively at all levels within the business with strong leadership and people development skills. You must have a track record in Private Equity or led a business sale, as your credibility to lead the business through a PE deal process will be of paramount importance.
