Livingston James retained by private equity backed business to appoint new CFO

Livingston James is delighted to be supporting a central-belt based, private equity-backed services business, in the appointment of a new CFO to support on their next stage of growth. Having been through various periods of investment over the past few years, they now continue to bring deep industry knowledge to a rapidly expanding portfolio of global customers.

As part of the senior leadership team, and working closely with the private equity house, the CFO will be responsible for overall financial stewardship of the business, supporting through the next exciting period of growth. The incumbent will be required to set and deliver the financial strategy, develop high quality management information and create a ‘fit for purpose’ finance team that will scale in line with business requirements.

The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant with proven senior level finance experience in an early-stage business. Experience in capital raising, and/or an exit process of some description would be beneficial, alongside a strategic mindset for financial innovation and optimisation.

A significant six-figure package plus equity will be available to the successful candidate.
