global leader in Self-Loading Concrete Mixers



Mandate Outline

The client, a market leader in self-loading concrete mixers with a $200 Million topline and strong cash flows, was seeking a Chief Financial Officer (CFO) from a manufacturing background to drive their growth and profitability.

The ideal candidate needed to lead both organic and inorganic growth initiatives, enhance profitability, and guide the company toward a successful Initial Public Offering (IPO) within an approximately 18-month timeframe. This role required a CFO with a proven track record in expanding business operations, executing M&A and optimizing operational efficiencies to maximize margins. Additionally, the candidate needed to be well-versed in the complexities of preparing for an IPO, including financial planning, compliance, investor relations, and regulatory requirements. The ability to work seamlessly with a professional CEO and the board was crucial, requiring strong leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills to align financial strategies with the company’s broader objectives and facilitate effective decision-making. While industry experience in manufacturing or construction equipment was not explicitly required, it could be beneficial given the client’s specific sector.

Our search process focused on identifying candidates with the right blend of experience in high-growth environments, IPO readiness, and collaborative leadership to support the client’s ambitious goals.
