CFO search for PE-backed wholesale distributor
BY 3P Partners | March 14, 2022

A private equity-backed wholesale distributor with 15+ locations and 800 employees required a CFO to transform its finance function. This person would be tasked with leading an ERP system implementation and the integration of newly acquired businesses while enhancing the capabilities of the finance and accounting team.

The challenge was in finding a candidate with hands-on leadership capabilities and a track record of building scalable processes, improving internal controls, and identifying opportunities to increase efficiencies across a complex, multi-site organization.

3P Partners headhunted a CFO with technical expertise in costing and inventory management at a competing PE-backed company. They also had experience leading and managing accounting, treasury, risk management, compliance, M&A, and FP&A functions and led multi-site integrations. This individual has added immeasurable value to the business and is an excellent cultural fit.
