The Turnaround Finance (Senior) Manager will lead the financial operations workstreams at various portfolio companies across Europe, aligning closely with local leadership and driving strategic restructuring and improvement processes throughout the turnaround process.

About Mutares

Mutares is a listed European-based private equity holding company. They specialize in restructuring medium-sized companies and spin-offs. They also acquire parts of major corporations (carve-outs), and medium-sized companies with revenues from one hundred million euros to 750 million euros, during transformational phases. By leveraging the development potential of traditionally distressed target companies during an active turnaround process, their operational specialist teams restructure the businesses, leading them to stable and profitable growth paths. 

Known as ’the equity entrepreneurs,’ Mutares supports its portfolio companies with their own consulting teams and through strategic add-on acquisitions. The international holding company is owner-managed, with approximately thirty-seven percent of shares held by the Management and Supervisory Boards, which are closely involved in the value-creation process. Their portfolio companies operate across a range of industries worldwide, mainly in Automotive and Mobility, Engineering and Technology, Goods and Services, and Retail and Food. 

Since opening its first office in Munich in 2008, Mutares has become a global player in the carve-outs and restructurings market and continues expanding even further across Europe and globally. It now employs 27,000 professionals across its portfolio companies. Its team of 140 internal operational specialists manages the entire value-creation process from thirteen European offices.  

Mutares has ambitious plans. They are currently expanding their local teams of operational professionals, who understand the market and speak the language, to guide new portfolio companies towards sustainable growth.
