McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders Senior Managing Director James Hickey and Vice President of Talent Acquisition Tamra Solis have successfully placed an interim Controller for a private equity-owned consumer services company in Southern California.

The previous Controller had recently left on a leave of absence, and the company needed support to bridge the gap. They required a Controller with strong audit preparation and technical accounting skills. Once the company’s Chief Financial Officer engaged McDermott + Bull, the team was able to provide the chosen, viable candidate within two days.

The placed candidate has over 20 years of extensive experience as a Controller, including work with multiple mid-market companies and private equity, as well as several years of experience with consumer products and services companies.
