Chair - Acquisition Driven Food Company Targeting IPO in 2020
Acquisition-led food company seeks experienced public company chairperson. The role will be non-executive and involve guiding the company through food business acquisitions and roll ups with a view to take the company public in 2020.
The company's objective is to aggressively acquire 50-100 small food companies with positive cashflow through leveraged buyouts. The goal is to dominate the healthy food sector which shows no clear market leader currently and is suitably fragmented.
Consolidation of redundant functions and professionalisation, particularly modernising technology and marketing, will increase company value along with being a liquid public entity.
The current management includes a veteran Executive Chef of 46 years operating to 3 michelin star standard and at board level. As well as a CEO with 10 years director level experience running health and fitness, and food businesses.
The role is London based but often can be performed remotely via phone or similar. A very generous equity package is on offer. If you have the requisite experience and are hungry for an ambitious and aggressive new challenge your application is thoroughly welcomed.
