Summary

If you are an entrepreneur, CEO or Managing Director running an ambitious company with fast growth potential and looking to build your company to ensure you get the highest price for it when/if you decide to sell our 'part-time Finance Director' model may well be of interest to you.

Ambitious companies looking to grow quickly need to build a quality finance function led by a senior Finance Director with 'big business' experience, but that person does not necessarily need to be full-time.
