The client was struggling to maintain a healthy cashflow and lacked standardized financial reporting, making it difficult for the leadership team to access insights, identify revenue drivers and act on profit opportunities. The lack of financial transparency also negatively affected the client’s investor relations.

The client wanted to bring in an interim CFO with a deep understanding of the healthcare sector and proven success in driving financial transformations for scale-ups.
