Chief Financial Officer - Sydney Outskirts - ASX Listed
Global parent has taken control of an exciting ASX listed business
About Our Client
My client is an ASX listed services business with a product that is unique and focuses on both the local and global markets. The organisation has been in decline the past few years but the newly appointed global parent has now taken control. With a fresh injection of capital and a new vision for the local business, they are in need of a new CFO to transform the business and ready it to be a major global player.
Reporting to both the CEO locally as well as global leadership overseas, you will be responsible for initially working on the organisations balance sheet, bank covenants, debt facilities - basically correcting the health of the business. You will then embark on a transformation of both finance and operations, ensuring that both are world class. This will be complex, considering the resistance you may face but also the complexities of a multi-site business. You will be supported with technology, capital and people. You will be a strategic thinker, with leadership skills to basically step in as Deputy CEO where required. The strategic goal is to prepare this business to be a part of the larger global parent who has ambitious goals to incorporate this business into their plans.
The Successful Applicant
You will be a Sydney based CFO that is willing to relocate to the outskirts of metro Sydney. It is vital you have a flexible, autonomous approach to problem solving, having done this in similar roles. Due to the heavy nature of working with the local banks, you will need to have corporate finance, covenant, debt facility management experience within a corporate setting understanding how to move a business from the red to black. M&A is big on their agenda, you will have experience in both acquisition and disposals of assets. You will be a CA/CPA/MBA qualified CFO with many years experience. Your career history would ideally have exposure to a multi-site business ideally within the industrial, supply chain or manufacturing type industries. ASX, IPO and distressed transformation experience is highly advantageous.
