Dogtopia Enterprises, a Phoenix-based, mid-sized franchise organization specializing in dog daycare services, is looking for a seasoned Chief Financial Officer (CFO) with a financial background in franchised or retail organizations. The ideal person will have progressed their financial career within a similar organization and be very familiar with managing a highly transactional, fast-moving environment with a small, effective team. Experience with Microsoft Navision, Paylocity and Power BI (or similar data visualization tool) would be a big advantage. CPA is a requirement for the role and experience reporting to the CEO and Board of Directors is necessary. The ability to cut through the noise and add business value through sometimes complex data analytics and strategic modelling of future ancillary channels, along with either IT, Supply Chain or HR oversight would be advantageous to the role. The desire to work in a high performing team and rapidly changing environment is a must. Experience in identifying long-term value drivers and working with an Executive Team in executing on these ideas is a must.
