Our client is looking for a CFO with an evolving profile to become CEO to challenge, advise and interact with leaders from different departments of the 2 divisions at the finance and business level. The targeted candidate is able to operationalize the strategy, in which he/she actively participates, to optimize the company's growth. 

As a strategic business partner with the president and leader of its finance team on 2 sites, the CFO will have to ensure sound business management and produce the necessary financial information for the European headquarters of this public company.

Beyond accounting, financial and operational technical skills, the successful candidate will be an advisor who supports business management through strategic analysis, planning and natural positive leadership that brings his or her troops together to achieve common goals. The #1 in finance will have to be able to delegate and surround himself well in order to rise and take the organization to another level.

The CFO likes to diagnose, improve the finance function, systems and procedures so that he can become more efficient, identify key indicators that allow operations to be understood and make critical decisions.

We are looking for a candidate with an exceptional track record of achievement that has had a direct impact on growth, profitability and strategic direction. Acquisitions, financing, case or opportunity analyses are essential and must be part of the CFO's achievements.

We are looking for an integration of accounting, financial and transactional (business) expertise as a minimum prerequisite. The successful candidate will be able to have a macro and micro vision with a global approach without favouring one division at the expense of the other, as well, he/she will have to be creative and opt for growth rather than just cost management and this, by being able to argue constructively with a fact-based approach. The CFO is an inspiring, humble and positive leader, able to operationalize his many ideas. 

With a very high communication capacity, the CFO is able to communicate business, accounting and strategic positioning issues to all hierarchical levels and multidisciplinary groups. We are looking for more than a coach; we are looking for a mentor!
