Controller – Potential to become CFO


Are you a highly competent Controller with a desire to continue learning and growing? If so, we’d like to talk to you about a special opportunity with our highly respected client.
Our client is a full-service construction company located in Bloomfield, CT with offices in Portsmouth, NH and Providence, R.I. The company has been providing construction services for over 30 years. Our work focuses on the commercial end specializing in financial institutions, medical offices and educational institutions. Project profiles range in size from $10,000 to several million with work throughout New England and Westchester County NY.
They have built a reputation on our integrity, commitment to our customers, and to providing a work environment in which people feel respected and appreciated. Solidus celebrates each employee’s contribution, believes in promoting professional development, and above all value’s seamless teamwork and collaboration.
After more than 20 years their current Controller is retiring, and that has created a rare opportunity for someone new to become a key contributor to the team. If you have the desire and capacity, there may also be the potential to eventually become the CFO.
