Job Description:

Our client is a middle market sized ($300-500MM revenue), private equity backed, branch based distribution business. The Company also has a field services component to their business to install and fix some of the products they sell. The company is known for having superior product quality, reliability and innovation with the highest levels of customer service. They are the largest distributor in their space yet still have significant growth potential due to the highly fragmented nature of their space.
The CFO will be a critical component of the senior leadership team. This is a hands-on position where a willingness and desire to work in such a manner is critical.
Must have prior experience includes:


  • Must currently reside in the the greater NYC / CT area
  • Given the expected growth trajectory of the Company, the ideal CFO candidate will have extensive experience as CFO or as a senior financial leader within another similar size, mid-market size company that has had meaningful growth, where hands-on, operationally focused skills were required to help scale the company.
  • The ideal candidate will have had experience in a distribution business where inventory management was a key part of the model. Additionally, to the extent there has been light manufacturing, kitting, as well is a plus.
  • Experience working at a strategic level as a partner to the CEO, Board, operations and other key executives helping shape the direction of the Company.
  • Must be a culture carrier within the organization, willing to listen and learn from others early on and empower team members.
  • Acquisition integration experience is critical as this is a core aspect of the growth thesis.
  • Must possess strong interpersonal, team building, and strategically focused leadership skills that include superior communications, team-based motivational tactics, and creative instincts.
