Katalyst Group is excited to announce the placement of a Corporate Controller with a construction services company. The private equity-backed company was in the midst of consolidating and centralizing its headquarters to the Chicagoland area and was looking for a skilled Controller to lead its general accounting, consolidated reporting, and treasury functions.

The company was facing a complete leadership change across the finance department and was interested in finding a catalyst that could quickly understand and articulate the challenges and opportunities this role presented. Through its direct-sourcing techniques, Katalyst Group was instrumental in the management of the recruiting, hiring, and on-boarding of the new Corporate Controller.

The Corporate Controller previously led the accounting and finance functions for an established family-owned medical device manufacturer and played an instrumental role in the successful sale to a private equity company. The Controller is thrilled to bring their leadership experience and team-building expertise to this construction services organization to ensure a smooth and successful transition to its new corporate headquarters.

The Controller, who has played a key role in stabilizing and centralizing the accounting function, provided the following statement about his experience working with Katalyst.

“Katalyst Group did a fantastic job understanding what I was looking for upfront and throughout the hiring process from interview prep all the way through making sure that my transition and on-boarding were seamless. I would recommend Katalyst to anyone looking for a new career opportunity.”
