Coast Appliances is one of Canada’s largest and leading independent appliance distributors and retailers. Known for establishing long term exclusive relationships with large builders across the country, it has recently increased its focus on direct sales to retail customers. Coast Appliances is ideally positioned for growth. As consumers’ appetites shift towards premium, more complex appliances, independent retailers such as Coast are gaining market share from department stores and big box retailers.
Coast has a solid financial platform, access to capital and an aggressive growth strategy. In the next five years, it aims to double sales. In the short term, growth will come organically and via its expanded footprint in Ontario. Longer term, the company is adopting a more aggressive digital strategy and is looking at strategic acquisitions. The CFO will play a leadership role in achieving this growth. Assessing acquisitions, conducting due diligence and enabling organic growth by installing better systems and processes will be key activities for the new CFO.
The Chief Financial Officer reports to the President & CEO and is responsible for all aspects of the company’s financial, technology, credit, facilities and supply chain activities. The CFO works as a key business partner providing leadership that delivers strategic advice and operational excellence for all aspects of the business.
As the ideal candidate, you bring a track record of success as a CFO in a consumer-oriented business, ideally in a role broader than just finance. Armed with a CPA or MBA, you are an inspirational people leader who enjoys operating as a strategic business partner and using business data to optimize operations. Expertise scaling a business for growth through market expansion or acquisition is advantageous.
