MB Interim Leaders Finds Interim Chief Financial Officer for Private Equity-Backed Distribution Company

IRVINE, California, May 12, 2017 — MB Interim Leaders (MBIL) is pleased to announce the placement of the interim Chief Financial Officer at a private equity-backed distribution company.

This interim executive leader search was led by Rebecca Miller, MBIL’s Vice President of Sales.  The private equity-backed company had an immediate need for an interim CFO with fast-turning distribution experience to establish internal accounting and finance functions, as well as manage logistics operations.  Within one week of interview completion, he was hired for the interim position.  After only three weeks of being onsite, the private equity firm determined that he was the correct fit for the permanent role and he was promptly converted to the full-time CFO position.  He is currently responsible for managing the finance and accounting operations and restructuring the finance department.

The interim leader has over fifteen years of experience leading finance operations at fast-turning distribution companies such as Bakkavor Foods.  He has extensive experience managing logistics operations and building out finance/accounting operations and teams from the ground up.
