Framing The Search Assignment
Position: Vice President of Finance
Client: 400-employee family-owned food processor in Tracy, CA
A second-generation, family-owned food processor in Tracy, CA required a Vice President of Finance to provide strategic leadership as the business prepared for its next phase of growth.
The challenge was finding a candidate with experience implementing a business partnership model to improve planning and analysis as well as streamlining accounting controls and processes, developing an ERP transition plan, and bolstering the use of Power BI. This person would also coach and mentor a team.
Within three months, 3P Partners successfully placed a candidate who was selected for his process improvement mindset and track record of building an org structure to support long-term growth.
The candidate had 20+ years of progressive commercial finance and demand planning experience with the last 7 years at KIND where he oversaw a large trade spend and built a team of 24 in revenue growth management, sales finance, marketing finance, and deductions.
