Through a referral a new client approached us to provide solutions within their corporate accounting department at a time when the company is rapidly expanding due to acquisitions. This company is a privately owned enterprise trading on a global basis, supplying precision machined components, fabrications and assemblies to leading OEM’s in the aerospace, defense, marine, power generation and nuclear markets. With manufacturing operations in the UK and USA, Their revenues have grown 4 fold since 2015. Bohan & Bradstreet was tasked to search for a Financial Planning and Analysis Manager that would report to the CFO and interface directly with leadership and all operations. In addition, B&B would seek to fill a Corporate Controller role which would oversee all accounting functions within a decentralized business model with Plant Controllers at each site. The Corporate Controller would be mentored by the current CFO who is planning retirement within 4 years so it is an ideal position for career growth. Within one week of the initial call from the client, B&B presented 3 qualified talented candidates for each role and all were interviewed by the client. Both roles had offers from the client within 2 weeks. Our candidates accepted and begin their new positions within 1 month from beginning the searches. The B&B difference is how our team can thoroughly grasp the business model and future goals of the company while streamlining the hiring process. Our search is not for the bullseye candidate that can perform the duties, rather it is the person who can add value over the long term and grow with the company.
