Regal Executive Search, Pasadena California
Our client is a high growth SAAS company based in Los Angeles
We are looking for a top-notch Head of Finance to help us grow from hundreds of world-class customers to thousands and beyond.
We are seeking a hands-on Head of Finance who has mastered the process of guiding a company with 30 employees scaling to the next level along the growth curve.
You’ ve been in this environment before – the pace, workload, and expectations are far beyond anything you’ ve ever experienced before. Everyone is intense, focused, and shares a common vision for the future. You’ re willing to make that investment for the sense of accomplishment, and future pay day. You realize the value of stock options in a fast-growing company.
Our ideal candidate has SaaS experience and comes from software businesses undergoing rapid growth and change. The growth here is exponential. You’ ve faced tough challenges of working with a board of directors, raising capital, international complexity, and building the financial, accounting, and administrative infrastructure that allows a company to grow 5X in a short period of time. You are hands-on enough to require no help but a book-keeper, yet you have the judgment to have successfully navigated complex negotiations with investors before. Your attention to detail is impeccable.
Look out a year from today. Over the last year, you’ ve improved internal financial reporting and the quality of reporting to the Board of Directors. You’ ve established systems, processes, and rigor around analysis, decision making, and forecasting. You’ ve improved cash flow and increased the accuracy of forecasts. You’ ve restructured the debt and improved working capital. You’ ve analyzed the profitability of each of our market segments and been an integral part of our prioritization of markets to target. You’ ve helped price new products – we launch 2-3 releases a week and are thus an integral part of our product development process. You’ ve assembled an outstanding team here in the US and in our foreign offices. You’ ve guided the management team through removing costs, and improving efficiency. You have anticipated financial issues before they occur and alerted management to how to avoid them.
