– Group Vice President of Finance – Government Services Vertical

Department: Accounting and Finance
FLSA Status: Exempt
Location: Denver, CO

We are currently seeking a highly motivated professional for the role of Group Vice President of Finance to lead the finance and accounting function for the government services vertical within Evergreen Services Group. In this role, you will partner with the Group Vice President to achieve vertical-wide strategic objectives, work with the finance and accounting teams at each of our partner companies to develop financial and accounting best practices, lead the financial due diligence and onboarding process for new acquisitions, and provide real-time insight into our operating metrics. We are looking for someone who can initially build and manage our finance and accounting functions and will serve as the strategic and financial partner to the Group Vice President.

Evergreen Services Group is a PE-backed holding company with a rapidly growing portfolio of services and technology companies. Rather than roll businesses into a single entity, we invest in companies that continue to operate independently with their own management teams, relying on Evergreen as a strategy and support partner. We have access to long-term funding and an indefinite hold period, unlike most private equity investment strategies that buy and sell businesses every 5-7 years.

We recently launched an industry vertical to focus on acquiring government services companies that help local and county governments serve their constituents more effectively. As Group VP of Finance, you’ll have the opportunity to build the foundation for a new “MidCo” entity to provide accounting and finance support to our group of operating companies. This is an ideal role for someone who wants the flexibility to build a start-up division within an established organization with existing access to thought partners, resources, and funding. Evergreen’s mission is to be the best permanent home for businesses and their leaders. We offer founders a unique transition path that allows them to keep their employees and business identity intact. As Group VP of Finance, you will help make this possible by supporting and elevating the finance and accounting teams across multiple businesses to ensure their long-term success.
