Engaging an interim CFO to rapidly drive finance transformation

Challenge:

Inflexion-backed SteriPack Group, a multi-national CDMO, needed to engage an interim CFO who would be able to deploy into the Ireland HQ and travel across Europe where necessary. The interim CFO would need to work closely with the newly appointed CEO and to rapidly drive a finance transformation programme.

Action:

Having been introduced by Inflexion on Friday afternoon, the brief was taken on Sunday morning and the successful candidate was presented the following day. The interim CFO came with all pre-requisites experience across manufacturing, complex pharma, leveraged private equity and running international businesses. We secured the candidate against another competitive opportunity and they started immediately.

Impact:

By accessing our deep PE candidate pool, the CEO was able to onboard a high-calibre interim CFO with exceptional speed – wasting little time in launching the finance transformation agenda and ultimately giving his investors comfort that they were in control of their plan. The successful candidate has had an exceptional start and is making a great impression both at board-level and beyond.


“I’m very impressed at Finatal’s ability to leverage their talent network at brilliant pace. We connected with urgency on a weekend and the candidate we selected was introduced almost immediately. They listened intently to the depth and nuances of the brief and our business, and their previous knowledge of our private equity backers ensured the candidate we selected was a great fit. I was very grateful for the speed at which we were able to recruit someone of [the candidate’s] calibre.”
