We are conducting a search for a new CEO for a private equity-backed specialist equipment manufacturer in North London. This is a highly profitable business with great potential for future growth, within the UK and further afield internationally. It has recently been backed by a UK mid market PE house, whose capital will allow the business to achieve its growth plans.

With a heritage in designing and manufacturing some of the most technically advanced equipment in their markets they have a highly defensible position and, with a supportive investor now on board, they are very well positioned to capitalise on their capabilities. It is a leader in its field, with a strong focus on research and development. Although it is currently a small business (revenues of c.£20m) it has an impressive customer base including a number of blue chips.

With the founder of the business moving into a non executive position, and an independent Chairman having been appointed, a CEO is sought to lead the business through its next period of growth and development. Applicants should be able to demonstrate experience gained in best in class manufacturing environments and have ideally fulfilled the role of CEO or Managing Director in at least one prior PE-backed SME. A higher degree in a physical science or engineering subject would offer a distinct advantage.

This will be a very hands on and demanding role in a business with a small and highly involved leadership team. In return, a meaningful and valuable equity stake will be provided, along with a base salary commensurate with the current scale of the business. 

Please provide details of your current remuneration and notice period in your cover letter / email.
