Following a period of rapid growth from $5m to $25m EBIDTA in the last 3 years, the business has secured funding from a private equity fund to lead them through a period of organic and inorganic growth and rapidly steer the business to exit in the next 24-36 months. The CFO will need to build a best-in-class finance function, lead on all M&A activity and be a valuable member of the C-suite management team.

    • Develop and implement financial models to assess investment opportunities, pricing strategies, and potential acquisitions.
    • Lead on the inorganic growth, planning and executing on two acquisitions a year.
    • Oversee the timely and accurate preparation of financial statements, ensuring compliance with GAAP and other regulatory requirements.
    • Provide regular financial performance updates to the executive team and private equity investors, highlighting key performance indicators (KPIs) and financial trends.

    • Act as the primary liaison with private equity investors, providing financial updates, responding to inquiries, and building strong relationships to instill confidence in the business's financial management.
    • Lead financial due diligence for potential acquisitions, assessing their financial viability and alignment with the company's growth strategy.
    • Support M&A transactions, including valuation, negotiation, and integration activities.
    • Identify and manage financial risks, implementing risk mitigation strategies to protect the business from potential adverse impacts.
    • Build and lead a high-performing finance team, fostering a culture of collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement.
