Senior Director Controlling for Supply Chain & Central Functions 100 %
Kardex is a global Swiss industry partner for intralogistics solutions and a leading provider of automated storage solutions and material handling systems. Joining its Division Kardex Remstar, you have the choice working from either Bellheim, Germany or Neuburg/Kammel, Germany and partially remote. Plus, the privilege of being part of a dynamic company with lean structures, characterized by values such as respect, team spirit, reliability and passion. Thanks to its profitable development, internal stability and global growth potential, Kardex can be considered a success story.
You are in charge of the overall financial and controlling activities of the Supply Chain & Central Functions of the Division in four production and software development plants in Germany and the US. You manage the P&L and have the ownership for the financial forecasting, budgeting as well as the preparation of business plans and management reports for the manufacturing plants. This means providing leadership, direction and management to the finance and controlling teams. You play an integral entrepreneurial role as business partner for a number of key people – mostly the Head of Supply Chain and the Senior Management in the local production sites. Reporting to the head of Finance and Administration and supported by nine direct reports in Germany and the US, you are a committed and energetic expert with an eye on business excellence.
To succeed in this challenging position, you are a straightforward self-starter with a university degree in Finance, Controlling or a related field. Moreover, you have a track record of at least 5 years in a relevant international leadership role in controlling of manufacturing units. Whereas experience in Swiss GAAP FER and consolidation software (IBM Cognos) are considered a plus, very robust expertise in SAP (SAP R/3, ECC or S/4 as modules FI/CO, ideally as well in MM/EWM/PP) gained in a manufacturing environment is a must. Furthermore, you possess a well-structured analytical mindset with a strong focus on efficiency and reliability. The right personal fit requires a creative, strong hands-on and sharp character with flexibility and creativity to adapt to ongoing change. Alternating between a detailed view and abstraction comes as naturally to you as weighing between risks and opportunities. Your excellent networking and interpersonal skills enable you to drive collaboration on all levels. In order to meet the business needs, you are confident in a culturally diverse environment and open to regular travelling. The global nature of this profile is, therefore, directed to applicants with strong written and oral communication skills in English and German.
