Perigon Group is exclusively partnered with a technology start-up who are entering a period of rapid growth, led by a dynamic board and backed by private investment. They are now looking to go through several capital raising rounds to facilitate international growth and have identified an exit within a two-year time frame. As such, they are seeking a strategic CFO to join the management team.
Reporting to the CEO and founders, they are seeking a strategic and commercial leader who will build from scratch a high performing finance function and be responsible in delivering several key operational initiatives in the next two years.
This newly created role is pivotal to the success of the business and due to the start-up nature of the company, a hands-on, autonomous and motivated candidate is required. The mandate will be incredibly broad, however there is an immediate need to ensure that adequate internal systems and processes are implemented for the forecast growth, and address a backlog of compliance and tax work.
Furthermore, from day one, the CFO will be developing growth strategies for an impending international expansion, leading fundraising activities, and advising on key decisions around product & target markets. This role will manage the full operations of Finance and IT, with a view to have full autonomy over how these functions operate.
This broad role requires a proven Senior Finance leader with a track record of working at an Executive level, ideally with a background in change management & capital raising. Experience in driving growth strategies, strategic modelling, and developing first class financial & operational systems and processes is key.
Crucially and in order to effectively bridge the gap between finance and the business, a passion for and/or interest in technology, a sophisticated communication style and commercial acumen is required to build trust with a very savvy stakeholder group.
