Entertainment company unveils new Vice President Finance
Challenged to find a Vice President Finance for a consumer products company specializing in entertainment products, Mandrake found an individual with exceptional leadership capabilities in both finance and operations.
Our client, a Canadian consumer products company producing entertainment products, wanted a new Vice President Finance to serve as an essential member of the senior management team. The ideal candidate would have at least 15 years of progressively responsible roles in finance and accounting, along with management experience in other corporate functions. The company was growing internationally and needed an individual that could bring leadership to the finance and technology functions. In addition, they would act as a key advisor to the President & CEO.
We set out to find suitable candidates who had both finance and management experience. We canvassed many mid-sized companies in the broader consumer goods marketplace to shortlist the best talent available.
We were able to find an excellent candidate with a track record of success in financial and business management. This individual demonstrated a capacity for leadership in both finance and operations. Their extensive experience, proven results, an ambition made them an excellent choice to take the organization to the next level. Eventually the VP Finance was promoted to CFO and proved to be integral to the growth of the company by successfully taking it public.
What our client had to say
“In the search for our Vice President of Finance, Bill found us an individual who was intelligent, affable and experienced. He has truly been a key success factor in securing financing and consolidating our growth. His financial capability has enabled me to concentrate on other parts of our business and not worry about finance.” – President & CEO, Entertainment Company
