Rutherford Cross Retained by BioFilm Ltd to Appoint Financial Controller

Rutherford Cross is excited to be working on a retained basis with BioFilm Ltd to appoint a Financial Controller.

BioFilm Limited, based in Blantyre near Glasgow, is a world-leading provider of Thin Dissolving Films (TDFs). BioFilm is a business-to-business company, working closely with its clients to develop and manufacture a range of products for the Consumer Healthcare and OTC markets, principally for the dental, nutritional, or medicinal markets.

Previously a subsidiary of Devro plc, the company is privately owned and backed by Tate & Lyle Ventures, Scottish Enterprise and Catapult Ventures. Their investment and support has allowed BioFilm to develop a strong reputation globally as a leading developer and supplier of TDF solutions to a range of customers.

Over the last two years, under the direction of new CEO, Ian Stevens, BioFilm has refined its product strategy. Today it is focused on strengthening its position in the rapidly growing teeth whitening and oral healthcare sector in its existing markets of Europe and North America, as well exploring new opportunities in Asia whilst also establishing an e-commerce platform which carries all its own-brand and formulation products.

This is an exciting time to join the business as it has just completed a strategic review and will shortly be rebranding with a new name to reflect the focus on producing and marketing products for the dental market. The company will seek new investment in 2021 to support growth plans. The role of Finance Controller has become available, reporting directly to the CEO and working closely with the leadership team.

The post holder will lead the finance function, taking responsibility for the day to day financial accounting, reporting and control activities of both the trading and holding companies. This individual will be expected to build excellent relationships across the business. They must gain a strong understanding of the operation and its culture and develop a deep knowledge of its customers and supply chain, working closely with operations and production colleagues
