Are you our new CFO?
We have the pleasure to present a great and exciting opportunity for a bright, analytical and hard-working individual to become our new CFO for STUTTERHEIM - the Swedish fashion brand that created the original raincoat. At STUTTERHEIM we work with a small-business mindset. Prestige, pride and ego is left at the door.
As a company we have recently transformed from a traditional wholesale operation into a digitally focused direct-to-consumer business with strong growth in all our channels. A small and sharp team of dedicated professionals have taken the STUTTERHEIM brand and company close to a 100M SEK in turnover by being fully geared towards sales and marketing. We are now looking for a CFO to join on our growth journey by ensuring a efficient admin processes, sound strategic decision making based on solid facts, as well as a data driven daily business management.
The CFO we are looking for should have a background in finance and accounting, e.g. as an accountant or controller, while at the same time being passionate about the fashion and apparel industry. Given our relatively manageable size today, we suspect this might be the first time you get to call yourself a CFO, a dream that you perhaps have carried for some time!

They will collaborate with the CEO and the executive team to make decisions regarding company's financial strategy and operations.
