I am excited to be partnering with an innovative and growth focused pan-European buyout fund. Following their recent investment into a packaging solutions manufacturer, we are on the lookout for a high-impact, hands-on and dynamic CEO to set the tone, shape the culture and vision as we enter 2021.
The company is impressively growing at 40%, boasts revenues of EUR 80m and has a big appetite to become Europe's quality leader over the next 5 years. They will be seeking an ambitious buy & build strategy, ideally executing between 10-15 bolt-ons per year and acquiring over 10 competitors with the view of achieving EUR 350m turnover before a lucrative exit.
As CEO, you will be the face of the business. We are looking for deep sector knowledge across the packaging / printing space, a proven track record with full P&L responsibility and exceptional sales ability especially when dealing with large FMCG buyers. You will oversee the day-to-day operations, production planning, pricing, and transforming a sleepy function into a European giant.
