    • Develop and implement robust financial policies, procedures, and controls to ensure accurate and timely reporting across the organization.
    • Provide financial guidance and support to the executive team and key stakeholders, including the board of directors and private equity partners.
    • Utilize your experience with Netsuite and MS 365 to optimize financial systems and reporting capabilities.

    The Requirements:

    • Proven experience as a Finance Controller or similar role, with a strong technical background and hands-on experience in post-acquisition integration.
    • Experience working within private equity-backed businesses and familiarity with the unique challenges and dynamics of such environments.
    • Excellent knowledge of accounting principles, financial reporting standards, and financial regulations.
    • Strong leadership and team management skills, with the ability to motivate and inspire a large finance team.
    • Strong analytical and problem-solving abilities, with a focus on driving operational efficiency and financial performance.
