Senior Director, CFO Services
Companies, investors and government entities around the world turn to Alvarez & Marsal (A&M) when conventional approaches are not enough to make change and achieve results. Privately held since its founding in 1983, A&M is a leading global professional services firm that provides advisory, business performance improvement and turnaround management services. A&M are the firm to call when a company needs a fundamental transformation, turnaround or operational restructuring. A&M’s involvement reassures creditors that the company is taking important steps to address its problems and maximise its value. We work with leading global private equity houses and their portfolio companies on an international basis as well as high profile investment banks and multi-national companies.
Our Corporate Transformation practice is built on deep functional expertise with a demonstrably differentiated ability to address the most complex business problems and deliver dramatic and sustainable business performance improvements. We operate in four pillars: CFO Services, Growth & Commercial Excellence, Supply Chain & Operations and, Transformation. In each pillar we identify and focus on a clear set of value propositions and a target client portfolio where we develop long-term, global, sustainable relationships. Our pillar leads are supported by sector leads (Industrials, Consumer, Retail, Media and Pharmaceuticals). Working directly with company management, A&M helps stabilise financial and operational performance by developing and implementing comprehensive profitability and working capital improvements.
Our pan-European Corporate Transformation practice is expanding and therefore an opportunity exists for us to strengthen the team at the Senior Director level in London. Reporting to the European Head of Finance Transformation & Working Capital, the successful appointee will have responsibility for continuing to build the profile and reputation of A&M as a leading global professional services firm that delivers critical assistance to companies that are under-performing or experiencing a full-blown liquidity crisis.
