Framing The Search Assignment

Client: 250+ employee, PE-backed almond processor in the Central Valley, California.
An established, PE-backed almond processor committed to sustainability required a strategic finance leader to build the finance and accounting function in the greater Bakersfield, CA area.

Most importantly, this individual would need to be aligned with the client’s sustainability-driven mission.
