Our client is a fast expanding SME with a reputable brand that is rapidly being recognized as an innovative leader and developer of high-end technological products.  With a leading-edge team of engineers and developers, they consistently launch pioneering products to revolutionize the consumer market.   As a result the company is continuing to expand in the US, Europe and in Asia Pacific.  They are now seeking a high caliber CFO keen to join their journey and help to grow the business.

Reporting directly to the Group CEO, you will be instrumental in helping to devise the strategic plan for growth and expansion.  You will evaluate the commercial viability of new markets and investment opportunities, support new product launches and measure the return on investments. You will also lead any future M&A opportunities and look at the legal and operational set up in new markets.  Leading a small finance team, you will implement appropriate policies and procedures, internal controls and reporting governance to support the business’ needs.  You will also manage all tax and treasury related activities, build the right banking relationships, negotiate trade terms and financing needs for company expansion.  Your role will be critical in partnering the senior management team to understand financial performance, and help make the right commercial decisions and to ultimately prepare the company for IPO.
