Director of Finance

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Date Posted: 03-19-2019
In 1992 Bruce Springsteen sang that there were “57 channels and nothing on.” In 2019 there are literally tens of thousands of TV channels, with people consuming content across a plethora of platforms.  There is certainly a lot to watch these days…

Our client is a privately-held, Canadian-owned, international content producer, distributor and channel operator positioned to take advantage of the growing and evolving media landscape.  They offer original programming for multiple genres and a large portfolio of well-known and respected international brand-name channels.

Headquartered in Toronto, with operations in the US, Asia, Europe, and Australasia, a recent purchase effectively doubled the company’s employee count and revenues.

With this rapid global growth, the newly-defined Director of Finance will have oversight of a small, sophisticated team and work closely with the Global Finance group to lead all aspects of complex technical accounting and consolidated financial reporting in a highly-transactional environment.  Although they are a private company, our client conducts its Financial Reporting and Control function to public company standards.

Key responsibilities include:
  • Lead monthly, quarterly and annual global corporate consolidation process and oversee complex monthly accounting entries and accruals
  • Support corporate and statutory financial statements, notes and MD&A of annual reports
  • Investigate, document and make recommendations on complex accounting matters
  • Support quarterly Board Reporting and cashflow analysis and preparation of the quarterly forecast, annual budgeting process and provide modelling support as required
  • Participate in special projects and transactions
If you hold a CPA, CA designation with and have 5 - 10 years’ experience auditing or reporting for a global public company and have a proven track record building relationships with diverse groups please apply in confidence.
