A great Portland, OR opportunity:


 


·         Software company in business for 25+ years


·         FYE 6/30/16, finished with $11MM in revenue and $3.9MM EBT (great profitability).


·         65 employees


 


 


They now need a CFO to help set up the financial controls and instill confidence in the new private equity group owner.


·         Private equity group wants to aggressively pursue bolt-on acquisitions to help achieve a $100MM gross revenue goal within 6 years.


·         Needs to be hands-on as they’re not big enough today to justify a full-time CFO AND Controller.


 


In the process of creating their own financial infrastructure as they were previously part of a large engineering firm who handled all the financial aspects.


·         HQ in Portland with offices in the Philippines, Australia and London so currency exchange experience would be ideal


·         Will report to the board and new owners on a regular basis.  Needs to have excellent communication skills.


 


Required


·         Strong accounting background with some understanding of IFRS and the ability to consolidate financials for multiple entities


·         Experience in the software industry (understand deferred revenue accounting and have knowledge of standard software KPIs)


·         Private equity experience


·         International experience, dealing with treasury and tax issues.  Working with finance teams across geographies.


·         US State sales tax experience


·         Entrepreneurial mindset – ability to work with small teams and less developed infrastructure.


 


Nice to have


·         Carve out experience


·         M&A and integration experience


·         Experience with a sales-driven company


·         HR experience (this position is the primary person responsible for HR)


·         Experience with Sage 300 (formerly ACCPAC)


 


They haven’t finalized compensation as experience will of course come into play, but assume $150k base + bonus in the 20%-30% range plus stock options (~1% of currently outstanding shares).


 


Please contact Lanz who has direct contact with the Company and is vetting potential candidates
