Wonderful opportunity to work for a positive / energetic ownership group and leadership team and join a company with a positive, casual atmosphere in a fun industry.  Our client is targeting candidates with a public accounting and private industry mixed background but they are looking for the right leader here who is equipped to grow into the CFO role and play a key role in this company’s growth for years to come.
