Rutherford Retained By Stirling-Based Howat Capital To Appoint Financial Controller

Howat Capital is based in Stirling and invests in sector-leading companies delivering quality-oriented products. The firm seeks out “like-minded business owners and talented management teams with the ability to achieve ambitious growth targets” and then works closely with management teams day in, day out providing them with the strategic direction and capital required to drive growth.

The business has grown significantly over the last 3 years with 14 deals completed and £30m of capital committed.  The firm’s investment portfolio now includes steel stockholding and distribution, precision engineering, a bar and restaurant business as well as significant property holdings. The group has 190 employees and operates across the UK and in France and Italy.  Forecast turnover for the current financial year is £35m.

The firm has recently completed the purchase of a new head office building in Stirling which will be the base for the firm’s leadership team, finance team and group support staff.  The new office space will allow the finance team to work together closely, allowing for procedures to be standardised, clearer reporting lines and encouraging best practice to be shared.  

For the right candidate, this is an exceptional opportunity to join a Stirling-based private equity business with ambitious growth plans and contribute to its future success by playing a key role in its journey.
