Interim Head of Finance

The client:Interim Head of Finance

A public unlisted medical services business, going through a period of expansion.

The brief:

The business required an Interim Head of Finance to provide additional support to the CFO. Through
the expansion of the business the CFO was required to travel extensively internationally, leading the
business on new acquisitions. As a result of the CFO’s engagement in strategic international work the
business required the Interim Head of Finance to manage the operational function of the finance team to ensure the team was given the proper day to day management and direction, and the business met their statutory financial responsibilities.

Watermark’s solution:

Whilst in the medical field, the organisation was open-minded about the size and nature of the
background of the individual. We put forward a shortlist containing people from both within and
outside the medical industry, with the successfully appointed candidate coming from the mining
services sector.

The outcome:

This appointment successfully freed the CFO up to solely focus on strategic work for the Board.
