An ultraviolet radiation start-up—which has germ-killing, water-purification, and indoor agriculture/cannabis applications—was growing exponentially and preparing to go public. However, the company’s finance and HR functions weren’t ready for the large-scale growth and major transition. The chief of staff reached out to Business Talent Group (BTG) in need of interim finance and HR leadership to support and navigate the changes. BTG delivered two senior executives to help the company make the most of the transition:
- An interim CFO — A PwC alum and former CFO in the renewable energy space to facilitate the NASDAQ audit process, set up public company filling processes, and anticipate financial implications of the transition from a product to a service model
- An interim CHRO — A seasoned HR executive with experience standing up HR functions to establish the required human capital infrastructure and operational procedures—all talent management processes, playbooks, and personnel policies
As interim leaders, the talent brought the expertise needed to prepare the company to seize tremendous growth opportunities.
