A private equity backed wholesale business in the East Bay area experienced transformative growth over the last year, nearly doubling revenue, and geographic reach due to multiple acquisitions in California and Arizona. The business sought a strategic Chief Financial Officer to integrate these newly acquired businesses, enhance the capabilities of their finance team, build scalable processes, improve internal controls, upgrade systems, & streamline reporting.
The challenge was in finding a dynamic Chief Financial Officer with hands on FP&A skills coupled with the ability to be a strategic partner to the CEO and the PE group on future growth strategies.
3P Partners presented a shortlist of six highly qualified candidates that the business interviewed. The selected candidate has a strong background in structured finance and accounting at PE backed businesses with a track record of multiple acquisitions and integrations in the same industry. Above all, the candidate was selected for their experience coaching and developing diverse accounting and finance teams and for their cultural fit with the broader organization.
