Chief Financial Officer- High Growth Food Products - Private Equity, 78392
Our client is a market-leading manufacturer in food innovation, focused on healthy lifestyle choices, with multiple production locations across North America. New growth driven by private equity investment has raised the need for a Chief Financial Officer to enhance and build a more robust finance and accounting team with particular emphasis on building out the financial planning, budgeting and analytics capability of the team.
You will be working within an aggressive growth strategy, with an established discipline of growth through acquisition, and will contribute at a strategic and tactical operations level working as a valued member of the executive team. As a truly hands-on “player coach”, you will oversee a “lean and mean”, fast-paced team with responsibility for the Finance, Accounting, and Information Technology functions. This person may be an experienced standalone CFO already or may be at that stage in their career where they are ready to take the next step to become the Chief Financial Officer.
This role requires a proactive and resourceful professional who can succeed without extensive corporate support and who can wear multiple hats within the organization while juggling financial and operational priorities. You will have extensive experience leading the reporting and analysis functions within a hands-on organizational structure and ideally have worked in close relationship with a financial sponsor. You will have deep experience in food innovation and production, including nimble and efficient product commercialization, cost accounting and supply chain optimization. The ideal candidate will have a combination of the following experiences: multi-location manufacturing industry experience, CPA or MBA, experience managing banking relationships, managing cash on a day-to-day basis, acquisitions and integration, and exposure to managing IT and/or HR.
A competitive base and bonus opportunity is offered along with a compelling equity opportunity. There will be some flexibility around base location for the role.
