Controller
We are partnering with a highly acquisitive, multi-site service organization looking to add a Controller to their executive team.

We are seeking a Controller with an analytical mind and excellent organizational skills. This is a tremendous opportunity to help scale a fast-growing company. Our accounting team is focused on growth, so a passion for automating tasks and an aptitude for applying technological solutions to manual problems is a must. We are a lean team and an ability to operate independently across a range of functions including monthly close, treasury, audit, tax, and payroll, is critical.

The Controller works directly with the CFO in developing accurate, scalable, and timely reporting and will have significant influence on the department’s decision-making, particularly, converting the company’s financials to comply with GAAP. The Controller will assist in the development of internal controls across the accounting function. This position will own the monthly close process, ensure reporting accuracy, and reduce manual tasks throughout the department and will be heavily involved in the audit process. We focus on informed decision-making through data analysis and as such the candidate will see an immediate impact from their work to the operations of the business lines. The Controller reports directly to the CFO will have full responsibility for accounting, reporting, and compliance functions.

  • Cultivate and maintain relationships with the company’s independent auditors to ensure the prompt completion of year-end audits.
  • Perform comprehensive analysis of the company’s financial results, including conducting business analytics and providing insightful evaluations of the various drivers influencing the company’s financial performance.
  • Oversee the development and maintenance of cash flow forecasting models to facilitate business planning and liquidity management.
  • Design and uphold an appropriate level of internal controls to ensure adequate safeguards without unnecessary bureaucracy.
  • Contribute input and support to the annual budgeting process and ongoing forecasting efforts.
  • Supervise payroll administration, including third-party payroll processing, to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and accurate maintenance of payroll records.
  • Manage the accounts receivable and accounts payable team, including tasks such as customer billing, cash application, collections, and vendor payments.
  • Maintain and prepare the company’s tax returns (federal, state, and local income, property, sales, etc.) in a timely manner.
  • Ensure that books and records are consistently maintained in accordance with US GAAP standards and oversee the generation of the company’s financial reports.
  • Direct the financial integration of acquired companies.

Experience:

  • Possess 5-10+ years of progressive experience in accounting and financial management.
  • Ideally have a background in public accounting followed by industry experience.
  • Previous experience as an Assistant Controller or Controller is preferred.
  • Thrive in a fast-paced, high-growth environment.
  • Experience operating in an environment with institutional debt and credit agreement compliance requirements is advantageous.
  • Experience with M&A activity and integrating target companies is a plus.
  • Project-level accounting experience, particularly in a multi-entity and multi-state environment, is beneficial.
  • Familiarity with enterprise-level information systems is beneficial.

Education / Certifications / Skills:

  • Hold a CPA designation.
  • Possess a BS in Accounting or Finance; a Master’s degree in Accounting is preferred.
  • Demonstrate advanced Excel skills and experience with ERP systems and data tools.
  • Experience with Microsoft Dynamics is preferred.
