Job Description

Job Title: Site Controller

[Libarty Group, a premium executive search firm, serves client companies across North America in the packaging industry and related fields ... ]

This $1billion North American CPG manufacturer, the industry leader in its primary market segment, seeks a Site Controller for its largest North American cereal grain mill.  The position is located in Texas. 

The Controller is a key partner (dotted line reporting) with the site general manager in assuring operational excellence, second-to-none customer satisfaction, and optimum profitability.  The position reports directly (bold line) to the corporate controller at a distant location.  She/he provides the financial lens through which operating decisions are made.  A strong and well-rounded background in manufacturing finance and accounting, asset management, and inventory control is critical. 

We seek someone who brings a blend of strategic thinking with tactical operations savvy ... and a track record of high-impact results.  He or she must be effective in prioritizing time demands without close oversight ... and seasoned in the classic aspects of manufacturing accounting including month and year-end close, standard costing for operational control and planning, and inventory reconciliation.  This person enjoys a roll-up-the-sleeves environment, regular interaction with the manufacturing team … and equally at ease walking through the numbers, whether at the 500’ level with a shift crew to help them understand how numbers capture behavior on the floor, or at the 30,000’ level in the boardroom when contrasting local results with sister sites around North America. 

Minimal travel (under 15%) to collaborate with colleagues across North America, or an occasional European visit, necessitates current passport status.

-- Skilled in financial controls and analysis in a manufacturing setting;

-- Pride in, and an unrelenting zeal for,
accuracy and timeliness in financial reporting;

-- Knowledgeable in
