Interim Finance Director


The client was an international group with operations in Europe, South America, India and China and a leading manufacturer of non branded domestic air fresheners and electric insecticide products.
Expansion had been fuelled by a combination of organic growth and acquisition, including the acquisition of its principal competitor.

It had recently become majority owned by a UK private equity house.
Under new ownership, the business would have access to additional capital and the private equity investors recognising the opportunities offered by its strong market position were keen to support the business’s continued development. They identified the need for a new calibre of leadership in the finance function to underpin an increasingly international business on a strong growth curve. A bi-lingual interim Finance Director was recruited who had experience of multi site, cross border production environments. As well as being able to lead SAP implementation and development and bringer tighter focus to cash and cost management, the interim was also able to make a significant contribution to commercial and strategic decision taking.
