Our client, a global Private Equity fund, was looking to prepare a global asset for exit. Rapid expansion through M&A had created a highly decentralised organisation. Senior leaders needed our help to drive a number of urgent and critical remediation programmes that would maximise value.
We partnered with the Group CFO, the Group HRD, the Group COO and the Group CCO to deliver a range of key initiatives.
Our client saw significant advances in cost centre reporting and controls, and in operational performance management. Our work strengthened the executive board and leadership team and helped identify new revenue-generating opportunities. It also launched the HR Management Systems programme and the finance and digital transformation programmes.
As a result, our client benefitted from major top- and bottom-line improvements that led to EBIT and multiplier growth.
Following an extensive search and selection process, we had four candidates who were deemed appointable for the role. The successful candidate came from another charity and was a female leader and a confident Financial Controller with a positive attitude and a flexible approach. She has hit the ground running, relieving War Child of the Financial Control and team management. She has improved Finance efficiencies and internal and external relationships associated with Finance.
