SF Group have been retained by a private equity firm to source a commercially aware and delivery focused Finance Director for one of their portfolio businesses in the East Midlands.
The business in question is c£20m turnover and operates in the distribution and retail channels.
As Finance Director you will manage not only the finance team but also sit across warehousing and logistics. To this end you will probably have worked in an SME and had significant experience not only of finance and treasury but also commercial and operational issues - this experience will have been gained in a product led organisation - we cannot consider candidates from the service sector for this role.
Ideally, you will have worked in a leveraged business previously and be comfortable leading external relationships with banks, auditors and providers of funding.
Preference will be given to candidates who have also led a sale process on behalf of a funder although we will happily consider candidates who haven't yet delivered this.
This role represents a rare opportunity to join a successful business at a pivotal stage in its development - as Finance Director you will be allocated equity which should have a significant value on the basis that the three year plan is delivered.
