Assistant Controller   


Our firm has been engaged on the Assistant Controller search for a healthy multibillion-dollar Florida Based Bank.  If you are a Banking professional with a minimum of 8 to 10 years of experience in a bank or financial services setting as an Assistant Controller, Controller, or Public Accounting Audit Manager, this could be a phenomenal opportunity for you.  This search hits the ‘trifecta’:  Great (healthy) bank, great career opportunity, and a great location! 


Our client, a publicly held, well capitalized, growing, billion plus dollar financial services organization, is looking to immediately add an Assistant Controller to their staff in what we would consider to be a high energy, fast paced, collaborative environment.   This bank has literally transformed itself from a sleeping giant five years ago, into a force to be reckoned with.  From the top down, the change has been robust, the work has been hard, but as the bench strength improves, so do the results.  That’s why this position is so critical.


Our contact, a seasoned Corporate Controller, who would be your coach/mentor, has entrusted us with the opportunity to surface a strong Assistant Controller with a CPA, strong US GAAP Accounting Skills, ability to do technical accounting research (research, interpret & apply), handle oversight of purchase accounting, fixed assets, correspondent accounts, leasing, and numerous other duties as assigned within the department.  In this role you will have several direct reports.  Having expertise in these areas is important from an oversight perspective.  Being a self-starter, with the ability to think on your feet, and work autonomously is very important in this role.  The team is humble, but very talented, so someone with not only drive, but excellent mentoring skills to continue to develop them is important as well.   If you have been exposed to these key accounting items within your bank’s work environment and have been considering a strategic move out of public accounting or into a larger bank, we would like to speak with you.


For someone that performs well in this role, long term career opportunities await, along with unlimited opportunities as the organization continues to grow.  Our client is looking to move quickly, please inquire confidentially to the link today!
