Thin film solar equipment and cell manufacturer from Sweden, Midsummer is on the lookout to hire a new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) as the current incumbent Eric Jaremalm will move out of the same and fully focus on the role of vice president as the company grows internationally.
The management said for the job, it is seeking a person with international experience of leading finance teams in a fast-growing listed company. Responsibility is broad and places greater demands on analytical ability, leadership and the ability to prioritize, it added. Interested candidates can approach the company via recruitment consultant at Meritmind.
One of the founders of the company, Jaremalm has been serving as the CFO of Midsummer since the beginning and has been deputy CEO as well. He was responsible for forging important customer relationships, general financing and establishment in Italy, where Midsummer has a manufacturing facility and growing business, among his other assignments (see Midsummer Gets Italian Support For Solar Fab).
“Our business area Solcellstak (thin film solar roofs) is growing by several 100% per year and we have a solid job of scaling up this business,” explained Jaremalm. “Our new factory in Italy will increase our production capacity tenfold and I must fully focus on the company’s expansion and issues such as strategies, forecasts and scenarios, investments, etc. Therefore, we will recruit a new CFO who will handle the finance function.”
