Legendary UCLA basketball player and coach John Wooden coined the expression “competitive greatness”, which he defined in very straightforward terms: “Perform at your best when your best is required. Your best is required each day.” Profoundly simplistic, his ‘Pyramid of Success’ essentially stated that when you assemble all the right elements and put them into practice to the utmost of your ability, the outcome will be success.
Our client is a publicly-traded Canadian company with a strong pyramid foundation already in place: visionary leadership, a dynamic, entrepreneurial management philosophy and a robust business model. They’re now ready to build the next tier that will take them forward… a skilled Finance team. A key player on this team will be a bright and capable Controller, who will report directly to the CFO, in a newly-created role.
