It is critical that this individual is driven, self-motivated, a self-starter, can work independently with minimal supervision, and demonstrates both good judgment and discretion. This role requires strong business acumen, so this individual will need to have an interest in understanding the “why” behind financials and the core underlying business. From forecasting the quarterly and annual revenue expectation for the entire business to crafting the story behind the numbers to the Management team and Board of Directors as well as leading high visibility and impact initiatives to drive net revenue accretion, your responsibilities help the company set, achieve, and analyze performance against its goals.
