IRVINE, California, February 27, 2019McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders (“MBIL”) has placed an interim controller for a leading contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) based in southern California. The successful placement comes after years of experience placing public company controllers who are capable of expediting the review and reconciliation of accounts while completing year-end financial reports.

McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders provided its biopharmaceuticals client with a high impact controller in less than 48 hours. According to Rebecca Miller, Senior Managing Director of McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders, “Our interim controller has a proven track record for leading public company accounting teams through challenging periods. He truly saved our client when their previous Controller left unexpectedly at year end. Because he’s helped other companies in distressed situations, he knew exactly where to dive in and create an immediate impact.”

The interim controller reported directly to the CFO and provided financial leadership, planning, guidance, and analysis across all major initiatives of the company. He played an ongoing role in overseeing day-to-day accounting operations for the organization until a permanent controller was identified and placed.
