My retained client is a sub £50m t/o, PE backed multisite business. Performing strongly in their sector and posting impressive EBITDA figures, the business is looking to roll out further sites in the coming year as part of their national expansion strategy.
Working closely with the Managing Director, this board level role will take responsibility for driving the business forward, working with the supportive PE House and the bank as well as leading, inspiring and motivating a small but highly capable finance team.
Applicants must have a strong understanding of multisite businesses, with prior experience in leisure, retail, hire or another similar multisite business being essential. An understanding of daily, weekly and monthly trading and performance analysis is required.
We need an exceptional candidate who has previously operated in a Finance Director role with ownership of the banking relationship(s) and a demonstrable track record of working as part of a senior leadership team.
This is a high energy, outgoing business which moves at pace whilst retaining a creative and vibrant culture and the successful FD must possess the necessary interpersonal skills and have a desire to work operationally across all areas of the business.
With the Private Equity exit likely to occur within the next two to three years, the Finance Director will play a crucial role in leading this process and delivering a successful outcome for the shareholders.
There is an attractive salary package available including car allowance and equity. With a 2-3 year timescale on exit this provides an exciting wealth creation opportunity.
