  • Calling all C-Suite finance professionals!

    It is no secret that now is an exciting time to be in the food industry - the plant-based food sector is driving rapid growth, consumers are continuing to be more conscious of healthier food products and there are some exciting companies making waves on the West Coast. Food technology is at the heart of innovation within the plant-based food space and it all starts with premium plant-based ingredients. Lock Search Group is excited to be working with our client, a manufacturer of premium artisan food products, as they continue to their next stage of exploding growth. We are seeking a dynamic, agile and sharp business leader to join the executive team to assume the role of Chief Financial Officer.

    Reporting to the CEO, the CFO is a key member of the executive team and assumes a strategic role in the overall financial management of the business. You will interface with a wide range of external stakeholders including the financial community, investors, research consortium partners, public market regulators, and government funders. In full collaboration with the CEO and executive team, you will lead initiatives on all financial, tax and data-driven decisions as well as assume shared responsibility for facilitating strategy and business planning activities. There is primary day-to-day responsibility in this position for planning, implementing, managing and controlling all finance-related activities of the company including:

    • Accounting, budgeting and forecasting 

    • Financial reporting and taxation 

    • Management of assets and leases

    • Information technology requirements 

    • Control of intellectual properties and contractual relationships 

    • Risk management including insurance internal controls

    Rarely does an opportunity come along to join a very well-positioned company at an early stage of global growth. Based on current demand and scaling manufacturing, the business is expecting to expand 10X over the next few months and the team is ramping up their leadership team to navigate the business forward. As an ideal candidate, you have strong knowledge of financial management and operations within a manufacturing company (food products preferred) and knowledge of the reporting and regulatory requirements for a publicly traded company. If you would like to learn more about this phenomenal opportunity, please reach out to Ryan Berrecloth ASAP.
