Our client is an entrepreneurial private equity vehicle, operating in the niche of textile services. The firm is pursuing a strategy of roll-ups of services firms. It is part of a family of similar buy & build vehicles covering a number of sectors in Germany, established over the course of the last 25 years. The track record of realized investments has been strong. The standard model is to consolidate fragmented markets through acquisition and integration, seeking critical mass and a successful exit.
Now in the process of making their first acquisitions, the management of the firm is now looking to support the further professionalization of the business by hiring a Head of Controlling and Reporting to set up, lead and professionalise the controlling function. You will report to and work closely with the firm's joint CEOs. The position will be based in Munich.
