Finance Director / CFO, Well-being & Fitness (PE-backed)
A new FD / CFO is required for a fast-growing, health, fitness and well-being clinics business. Our client has multiple sites across London and is embarking on a significant expansion programme, following recent first-time investment by Private Equity. That institutional capital is enabling the ambitious growth plan and maturing of the business. The new FD will play a crucial part.
Amongst a broad remit, this position requires a highly commercial FD who will lead the company’s finance and accounting strategy to optimise the financial and strategic position of the business. They will report directly to the CEO as a main board member, lead the small finance team and interact closely with the private equity sponsor. Alongside leading the core finance and accounting functions, the FD will also have responsibility for HR, IT and ad hoc special projects.
To suit this role, you will have significant career experience and a track record of success in a similar function. You will be a highly commercial finance professional, a qualified accountant and a previous, successful cycle in PE-backed business will be beneficial. Ideally you will have worked in clinical healthcare delivery to consumers. Otherwise you may have worked in, and will have strong personal affiliation with, the wider fitness, well-being and personal health markets. The right person will be experienced in multi-site businesses, have been part of a roll-out programme and therefore have good knowledge of managing landlord relationships and real-estate contractual negotiation.
