Interim CFO - Data-Driven SaaS Business
Day rate: £1500-2000
I’m currently looking for an Interim CFO for a c£20m t/o data-driven SaaS business tapped into the Cyber Security market.
They are market leading in the UK for a very specific solution responsible for the vast majority of their revenues, which has grown significantly YoY since inception. In recent years however, revenue has exploded, and the recent PE buyout will enable them to accelerate growth into the US market. With relatively limited competition in a huge, regulatory-lead market, they have potential to penetrate and become global market leaders.
Coming from smaller scale PE investment previously, the business needs to pivot quickly to accommodate continued growth.
An Interim CFO will therefore create value by bringing the finance function up to speed with Private Equity ownership and act as a conduit between CEO/Board and the PE investors, enabling future growth.
For this assignment, prior PE experience is ideal but not necessary. I can be flexible for those with excellent SaaS/IT services experience and strong US exposure. However, the gold would be CFOs with US Corporate experience who have pivoted into the UK PE market. The most important factor is a proven CFO background, experience in extremely high-volume data businesses and someone who can turn their hand to both nuts-and-bolts workstreams and strategic initiatives.
