Senior Director of Finance and Accounting Atlanta GA

Ready to move into a CFO role but feel stuck at your current level? Our client, a boutique asset management firm located in Buckhead, is looking for a Senior Director of Finance and Accounting who can grow into a CFO role at their firm. This firm was founded in 2005 and is a multi-strategy alternative investment firm that structures and manages tailored alternative investment strategies for family offices, wealth advisory firms, and institutions. This rapidly growing 16 member firm will be able to provide significant upward mobility opportunities as they continue to expand.

This will be a hands-on management position that will have significant financial responsibilities. If you love to be “in the weeds” and be able to manage from the bottom up, this could be a great fit.

Their employees love the team environment that they have fostered, which in many ways feels like a family – one teammate looking out for and supporting another. 

If you have experience working for a public accounting firm, fund management or fund administrator company and are ready to join a firm on the rise, this could be a great stepping stone opportunity for you.

This position will initially be worked all onsite but after the initial onboarding/acclimation phase, can be worked as a hybrid role.
