An expansive new venture will soon bring together a cadre of global investors, one of the most respected names in the multifamily industry and a new executive in accounting. The expertise of this company’s new venture controller will help guide $3 billion in capital investment across more than 30 multi-family projects. Like the venture itself, this Charlotte, N.C.-based position represents an exciting ground floor for the right leader, eager to bring his or her value to the table.
The controller’s sphere of responsibility will encompass all accounting, reporting and financial controls. This will include coordination of the budgeting and business planning process, supervision of the accounting department and analysis of projections and special projects. Responsibility for financial reporting will also fall to this person, including updates to the partners and corporate office, as well as coordination of the monthly close process, audits and tax returns.
Oversight of the financial controls for a venture of this size calls for a deep background in both finance and management. This should include previous experience as a controller and/or an executive involved in joint ventures or fund accounting. In addition to a CPA, candidates should bring at least five years of experience with IFRS and accounting in real estate. Other requirements include advanced data analysis and software skills, with knowledge of Timberline a plus. The new controller will also be an excellent communicator with a knack for managing others in an evolving, fast-paced environment.
