A private equity backed retail business requires an interim CFO whilst they change out the incumbent CFO. The business is facing serious trading difficulties and requires an interim with a solid experience in turning around/restructuring businesses successfully. You will be working alongside a Chairman, NED and CEO who all have strong track records within the retail space.
The business is an omni-channel retailer that operates predominantly in the UK with some International reach, mainly through concessions. The PE house had to inject emergency funding in to the business in 2017 so it is imperative the interim has strong experience around managing cash/working capital to had stablise the business and then work to return the business to profitability.
The ideal candidate will have prior experience of working in multiple retail businesses (omni-channel), turnaround/restructuring/transformation experience, experience in a PE backed/highly leveraged business.
