Unfortunately, this position is no longer available.

Our client is a growing and established manufacturing company and due to dramatic growth, they are looking to hire a Senior Financial Controller to lead their accounting/finance team. As a key member of the company’s Management Team, the Financial Controller will lead and be responsible for the daily administration of the company’s accounting and financial activities, reporting directly to the President and COO and supervising a small team of accountants.

This is an excellent opportunity for a designated CPA Financial Controller coming from manufacturing or distribution who has experience supervising a small team and wants to help this company move through all the growing pains that come with dramatic expansion. The position will allow the Senior Financial Controller to have a broad focus versus a narrow one with a larger organization.
