This position has been filled.

“Measure what can be measured and monitor what can’t, recognizing that good intentions are no substitute for performance and results”

So said Peter Drucker, the father of ‘management by objectives’ and originator of business ideas and ideals that are both practical and inspiring.  And he was right.  The numbers don’t lie… but you have to always keep looking beyond the numbers.

Our client is an established manufacturing & distribution business headquartered in Mississauga and with operations worldwide.   They are currently looking to enhance their already strong management team by bringing a bright, business savvy Controller on board… and they want someone who can see well beyond the numbers alone.

Partnering with an accomplished and experienced Managing Director, the Controller will be responsible for all accounting, management and financial reporting and planning & analysis activities for this business unit, while providing leadership to a small team.  The initial focus of the role will be the full accountability for assessing, analyzing and improving all accounting, management and financial reporting activities, systems and processes, with an opportunity to take on a broader role over time, supporting the continued growth of the business.

Key success criteria are:

  • Strong hands-on finance and accounting skills, ideally developed within a manufacturing/distribution environment;
  • Strong leadership skills, and a collaborative approach while working with both finance & operations;
  • Confidence, high energy and a receptive attitude towards change and innovation.

The ideal candidate will be a technically accomplished and business-focused finance professional (CA, CMA or CGA), with 5+ years’ progressive experience, including hands-on proficiency with   management and financial reporting, planning and analysis. Strong technical abilities, together with superior critical thinking skills and attention to detail, are essential.  A proactive, energetic individual, able to manage multi-faceted responsibilities within a dynamic and evolving environment, will thrive in this role.

The company is growing and it’s the perfect time to come on board.
