Director of External Reporting (SEC & Regulatory Reporting)
If you are looking for a Director level role at a growing community bank, MR Dominion may have an exciting opportunity for you. MR Dominion is an executive search firm that solely focuses on accounting and finance roles within banks nationwide. We are part of Management Recruiters International and consistently rank among the top affiliates internationally in our size category.
Due to an internal move, our client needs to hire a Director of External reporting over both SEC and Regulatory Reporting to participate in the preparation, review, and dissemination of financial reporting both externally to regulatory bodies and internally to executive management. This is an important role and not just a box checking exercise, this internal reporting is key as executives utilize this critical information to help make strategic decisions for the bank. As you might imagine, this Director is responsible for ensuring compliance and the integrity of data as it relates to each regulatory body: FDIC, SEC, and FASB. Based on the asset size of the bank, you will be driving the process from A-Z with help from other stakeholders within the bank. As such, you must have a command of the subject matter and be a great communicator and relationship builder as you help the bank build out a framework not just based on current asset size, but a much larger shop down the road as they continue to grow.
At its core the key is having experience overseeing all Federal Reserve Bank and FDIC reporting, including the FR-2900, FR-2644, Call Report, and the Y-9 reports. You will also oversee the quarterly reporting to the SEC, including earnings press releases, reports for analysts, investors, and various industry groups, as well as 10K’s and 10Q’s.
In addition to the aforementioned, the core duties of the Director of External Reporting include the monthly closing of financial reports, approving journal entries, and reconciliation review. Implementing a formal process for obtaining and analyzing information gathered from various business units for report preparation is important as well. You would also help with the configuration of the GL to assist with accurate and timely reporting. Lastly, you would drive timely preparation and review of monthly and quarterly balance sheet statements, cash flow statements, and other materials required by executive management. You must provide variance analysis and provide research on technical accounting issues and financial reporting requirements. You will also interface directly with auditors.
In this role, we are looking for either someone with a strong banking background doing SEC Reporting and has experience with Regulatory Reporting, or is working at a Top Ten Public Accounting Firm individual that has experience with publicly traded entities and can easily assimilate into the regulatory and financial reporting role. You must have a degree in accounting or finance and a CPA accreditation. (If you do not have a CPA, you must have exposure in this role within a bank with some mass to it.) This is a great bank, with a great team, with reporting to a newly promoted Chief Accounting Officer that is on a great career trajectory.
This role can be remote for residents of Georgia with periodic travel to the Corporate Office. Please inquire today in confidence. We look forward to hearing from you.
