Contract / Interim

I’m currently working with a mid-market PE fund that is soon to complete an acquisition of a software business that will be merged with a competitor to create a c£10m EBITDA group. They will rapidly pursue a buy-and-build strategy with intention to double EBITDA in 12 months.

The current finance team is lean but strong, experienced and the vast majority will remain in post after deal-completion. However, the combined group lacks financial leadership in a buy-and-build environment.

As Interim CFO, you will help bring the business up to PE standards of ownership through improved reporting/commercials etc but will ultimately play a major part in the acquisition and integration work.

The intention is to provide strong financial leadership throughout the intense change and inorganic growth period before handing over to a suitable permanent appointment.

Therefore, for the right person, this role could conclude in a permanent conversion. 

Requirements:

  • Experienced Private Equity CFO
  • Strong experience working in buy-and-build environments
  • Demonstrable track-record in scaling high-performing finance teams
  • Willingness to get hands on but more of a strong commercial background.
