Vice President Finance
Our client, a Canadian consumer products company producing entertainment products, was looking for a Vice President Finance who would serve as an essential member of the senior management team. The ideal candidate would have at least 15 years of progressively responsible roles in finance and accounting, along with management experience in other corporate functions. The company was experiencing rapid growth internationally and needed an individual that could bring leadership to the finance and technology functions. In addition, they would act as a key advisor to the President & CEO.
We set out to find suitable candidates who had both finance and management experience. We canvassed a large number of mid-sized companies in the broader consumer goods marketplace and developed a short list of candidates who met the specific criteria.
We were able to find an excellent candidate with a track record of success in financial and business management. This individual demonstrated a capacity for leadership in both finance and operations. Their extensive experience, proven results, along with their success-driven nature made this candidate a first-rate choice to bring the organization to the next level. The hired individual worked closely with the President & CEO, who was very hands-on in running the company. Eventually the VP Finance was promoted to CFO, and proved to be integral to the growth of the company by successfully taking it public.
In the search for our Vice President of Finance, Bill found us an individual who was intelligent, affable and experienced. He has truly been a key success factor in securing financing and consolidating our growth. His financial capability has enabled me to concentrate on other parts of our business and not worry about finance.
