McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders Director Julie Francis and Vice President of Talent Acquisition Tamra Solis have successfully placed an interim Controller for a privately held food manufacturing company in Southern California.

The company needed a strong technical Controller to step in and assist with key initiatives, as they were experiencing rapid growth and demand for their products. They needed a Controller with strong audit preparation skills, SAP experience, and an ability to lead and mentor the accounting team.
