Position: Corporate Controller 

Client: 200+ employee farming business in the Central Valley, California


The Challenge

A privately-owned agribusiness in the Central Valley, California created a Controller position as a succession plan for their CFO who had a 40-year tenure with the business.

This individual has been a great addition to the team as they have recommended process improvements while engaging legacy employees.
