Interim Chief Financial Officer

The client:Interim CFO

A medium-sized, well established manufacturing organisation.

The brief:

The organisation was going through significant organisational and structural transformation and following a strategic review was looking to appoint an Interim CFO who would add value whilst they recruited their permanent CFO. The CEO was keen to source a seasoned and established 2IC CFO with a proven track record in change management and with very specific experience in three key areas where the business was required to deliver in the next four to six months.

Watermark’s solution:

Watermark provided a shortlist of appropriate experienced CFO’s with relevant backgrounds within one week of the brief. The CEO followed up with meetings with each of the shortlisted candidates and two of them were shortlisted to interview with the U.S. Parent group. The successful candidate was appointed to the interim assignment.

The outcome:

The Interim CFO was very successful, adding value from day one. His past expertise together with his broad industry experience meant he was able to ‘cast a new eye’ over issues and find and implement solutions very quickly.
