Altus Partners are delighted to be partnered with a leading European Private Equity firm to appoint a Group Head of Financial Planning & Analysis for their flagship healthcare asset based in Germany. The company has experienced strong organic growth domestically, but recently has expanded internationally through multiple strategic acquisitions. In line with the international growth, they are looking to bolster their finance structure and specifically the commercial capabilities within the group. To that end, the Head of FP&A will play a key role as a lever of success moving forward. As a number 2 to the CFO, they will support all commercial decision making, along with improving the internal finance dialogue with the wider business. This will suit an established FP&A leader within healthcare; exposure to a Private Equity investment cycle would be highly advantageous.
