James Hickey, Senior Managing Director, and Tamra Solis, Vice President of Talent Acquisition and Operations, of McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders, have placed an interim Controller for a $350M financial services company in Southern California. The private equity-backed company provides services to the mortgage and construction industries.

The organization’s controller resigned as they were in the process of a quarter-end and had reports due to their private equity investor. With deadlines looming, they needed a quick solution and MBIL was able to have an interim leader start with the company two days later.

The placed candidate has over 20 years of extensive controller experience, including working with multiple private equity owned businesses. The candidate was able to achieve all of the goals set while leading the company through the upcoming deadline and smoothly transitioned all responsibilities over to their permanent controller three months later.
