Interim CFO urgently needed for prep for sale process


Pe firm urgently needs an interim CFO to help with prep for sale

A PE managing partner came to us with a critical need for an interim CFO to lead their software portco through a sale process. Hoping to sell within the next 3 to 4 months, the managing partner was urgently looking for someone who could immediately come in to the portco, take point on gathering essential documentation for sale, manage financial projections, and serve as a leader within the portco during this transitional time. The PE firm quickly needed a PE-grade interim CFO who was available for the next 4-6 months, had deep SaaS expertise, and was able to travel onsite several days a month.
