The proven team that built FleetMatics (one of Chicago’s most successful companies) is at it again. The band is back together and looking for a drummer who can keep the beat.
Based in Naperville, the VP Global Finance & Administration reports directly to Cellcontrol’s CEO.
Strong Suit has been retained to identify a remarkable head of finance & accounting for this rapidly-growing company. It’s a global role, since half of revenues are outside the US.
With 45 passionate employees, Cellcontrol is the world leader in solutions that prevent distracted driving & improve driver performance. In short: Cellcontrol saves lives.
The company’s safe driving platform is the only enforceable distracted driving solution available for iPhone, Android, and other devices. The system has protected customers across the globe as they’ve traveled more than 1 billion miles safely & distraction-free. Customers report that crash rates decline by 40-90%. Utilizing a patent-pending non-pairing Bluetooth broadcast signal, Cellcontrol even covers complex deployments consisting of multiple in-cabin devices at the same time.
It solves a huge problem for employers, who bear the cost of employee accidents. In particular, employers are exposed to the consequences of employee mobile device use when they are driving on company time or in a company vehicle. Making calls, texting, emailing, and playing Candy Crush when vehicles are in motion exponentially increases the likelihood of an at-fault vehicle crash. This places negligence & liability exposure on the employer.
Cellcontrol eliminates this risk by providing a cross-platform solution with centralized management and reporting that is, above all, enforceable.
Backed by substantial funding from two leading growth investors, Cellcontrol is scaling rapidly while solving this crucial need.
In this new role, the VP Global Finance & Administration will lay the groundwork for the business to scale. Includes creating the financial processes & metrics. Policies and controls. Board reporting. Global tax & treasury functions. Commission reporting. HR administration. Upgrading from Quickbooks & implementing a full revenue management system.
In short, the VP will build a bulletproof finance & accounting organization and system.
This is a comprehensive role for the experienced, yet hands-on, business builder who is ready to partner with a proven leadership team.
Let’s have a conversation (confidential, of course).
