Assess Viability: Work with the CFO to identify and determine the feasibility of new business opportunities, including mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, co-manufacturing, and joint ventures.

Guide the Journey: Support the CEO, CFO and executive management team along the business transformation journey by managing a monthly process (e.g., track, communicate, identify when corrective action is needed, etc.) to assess progress against the Company's key strategic initiatives.

Communication Wizard: Assist CEO and CFO with the preparation of board and executive-level presentations and communications. 

What you bring to the table:
