Sherrington recruit Group Financial Controller for ITS Technology Group

Posted on 5th February 2018 | Latest News

Sherrington Associates are proud to have completed a retained search to appoint a new Group Financial Controller for IT and unified communications specialists ITS Technology Group in Chester. 

ITS are the fastest growing super-fast broadband provider in the UK. Following recent investment from private equity partners Maven Capital, ITS retained Sherrington Associates to find, assess and select a new Group Financial Controller for the business to grow the capability and functionality of their finance department during a period of significant scale-up and growth.

Key to the brief was to find a shortlist of experienced financial controllers, capable of operating at group level within a high-growth entrepreneurial environment where every day is different. The candidate's experience of working with institutional investors would be invaluable as would their cultural fit with the business.

Following a targeted search campaign that involved deep research into North West based private equity backed businesses, an appointment was made to a candidate with a strong background in strengthening financial teams in line with PE investor's growth plans.

​We always enjoy supporting clients with such exciting growth plans and to have played a part in this key appointment was fantastic. This is just another positive example of how our approach supports PE and VC backed SME's when it comes to recruiting really high-level senior managers.
