IRVINE, California, August 27, 2018McDermott & Bull Interim Leaders (MBIL) is pleased to announce the successful appointment of an interim Chief Financial Officer with a publicly traded biotechnology company.

This interim leader search was led by Rebecca Miller, Senior Managing Director.  The organization had an urgent need for an experienced, public company CFO due to the retirement of their finance leader, as well as a shift in company strategy.  The company was restructuring to more of a manufacturing focus and, in doing so, divested a large portion of their business.  The interim CFO assisted with the year-end close and reporting, while keeping the vision moving forward during the transitional period.  Our interim leader worked closely with the CEO and board, advising them on reporting and analytics, while keeping the morale of the finance team positive and focused on the goals ahead.

The interim leader selected has over twenty years of experience as a Chief Financial Officer in public and private companies, focused on the medical device and pharmaceutical industries.  Our leader, along with the executive team and board, worked diligently to ensure there was alignment throughout the organization with the new vision and strategy.
