  • Overview and Responsibilities

    The Director of Financial Planning and Analysis is a key leadership role with significant and broad responsibilities. This role will report to the Chief Financial Officer and lead a 2-3 person team with substantial opportunity for future growth within the company in concert with driving financial results. As the Director responsible for developing financial planning, forecasting and budgeting, you will be a key thought leader on future financial performance, capital structure and strategic planning of the company. You will work closely with all executive leaders of the company, our investors and external partners to collaborate on broader strategic initiatives and shape the direction and growth of the overall business in a collaborative dynamic team environment. Strategic decisions will require intense planning and forecasting as the company transforms into a larger and broader specialty finance enterprise with the potential of an IPO in the future. The Director will be expected to build an FP&A team to partner with all business units in the company to drive strategic initiatives and financial efficiency. It is expected to be a small, tight-knit team working directly under the CFO to help bring financial discipline and analysis to the decision-making process in order to properly scale the business. The team will be expected to leverage data from all parts of the company and make it actionable. There will also be a great amount of interaction with the Leadership Team to help inform and influence the decision-making process. Key responsibilities are as follows:

    • Build and develop an FP&A team commensurate with the business demands and growth.
    • Form close, trusting relationships with Branch Originations, Centralized Underwriting and Collections, Operations Support and IT leaders and teams to model how the business works, develop projections and proactively communicate important financial trends.
    • Lead the operational and financial review meetings where business results are shared and drive accountability among business partners.
    • Leverage analytics and develop reporting tools to drive KPIs and develop informative analysis and information for business partners.
    • Create and lead presentations to executive management and investors on forecasting, planning, performance tracking, etc.
    • Conduct ad hoc analyses for the business leaders and presentations for important counterparties (investors, ratings agencies, lenders, etc.)
    • Champion enhancements to the finance systems and infrastructure to ensure the company’s finance tools remain contemporary and deliver productivity and financial transparency to the business.

    • Analytical and business rigor: Ability to translate business questions such as “What are the impacts to returns and liquidity if we expand our branch network by 30%?” or “In what ways can we use our balance sheet more efficiently?” into implementable solutions.
    • Effective written and verbal communication: Strong communication skills that enable you to work productively across disparate functional groups and communicate key findings and solutions persuasively.
    • High-energy, positive attitude: Republic is a fast-growing, constantly changing environment.
