Founded in 2013, Chairish is the online marketplace for exceptional home furnishings, decor, and art, connecting millions of design lovers to over 12,000 sellers around the world. Chairish is leading the luxury home furnishings industry into the digital future as online penetration for the category has grown dramatically post-COVID. A digital native, Chairish built a highly capital-efficient business that holds no inventory and has a scalable tech platform, with customer service that earns world-class Net Promoter Scores.
Chairish has earned widespread recognition from leaders in the home design space: Architectural Digest named Chairish the #1 “can’t live without decorating app” that “will change the way you shop for furniture online.” Entrepreneur lists Chairish as one of “best entrepreneurial companies in America” and IAB recently named Chairish a "Brand to Watch”.
Charish’s veteran leadership team includes the co-founder of Hotwire and celebrated fashion and design industry executives. Chairish has raised $69 million. After a $33 million round in 2020 led by Tiritum, the investment team behind HomeAway, Chairish acquired Pamono GmbH to expand its supply base and market reach outside the U.S. Based in Berlin, Pamono is the leading independent luxury vintage furniture marketplace in Europe.
As the home goods category continues to migrate online, Chairish seeks to capitalize on its already significant scale and traction to become the global luxury design market leader and is looking for a CFO to help on the continued growth journey.
Reporting to the CEO, Gregg Brockway, this individual will lead Chairish’s finance organization and be a key business partner to the CEO and senior management team in the development and execution of Chairish’s strategic and financial plans. While the CFO’s primary responsibilities will encompass all financial elements of the company, this individual’s general business acumen, team leadership, and performance management will be equally important in the successful execution of the CFO’s daily responsibilities.
With increasing complexity, a global footprint, and the demands on infrastructure and resources that rapid growth typically drives, this leader will have to be the “authority” of the numbers and financial models for Chairish. Having made two acquisitions, Chairish is a successful acquirer and will continue to evaluate additional M&A opportunities to accelerate growth. The CFO will lead the future acquisition evaluation processes, including how to structure and fund the acquisitions. Not only will this person provide leadership that will enable the company to move aggressively toward achieving its growth plans, but this individual will also help drive the expansion of the business by capitalizing on the company’s technology and market leadership position.
The CFO will help build and lead a more robust, mature, and strategic finance organization while serving as an excellent communicator who will ensure Chairish’s business leaders, board members, and external stakeholders are aligned and energized about its business strategy and future value creation opportunities.
As a trusted partner to the CEO, actively participate in the development of strategic corporate goals while empowering the executive team and board to make risk‐informed, data‐driven decisions.
Effectively articulate Chairish’s strategy and financial performance to Chairish’s Board of Directors and external stakeholders.
Leverage previous experience scaling a rapidly growing company to develop the necessary systems, processes, and practices to support Chairish’s next phase of growth.
Support the growth of the business through comprehensive due diligence and skilled financial analysis of potential acquisitions and other strategic investment opportunities.
Drive performance management tied to key metrics/KPIs/business drivers that provide a forward-looking view into trends requiring management decisions and actions.
Improve the quality, timeliness, and reliability of financial analysis and key performance metrics available to executive management and the Board, including forecasting, budgeting, and resource allocation in all functional areas.
Develop and scale the company’s financial and operational infrastructure required to meet agreed performance goals and targets within established budgets and timescales.
Automate processes and systems to achieve efficiency gains and quality improvements on a sequential basis.
Ensure timely and accurate closing of the monthly books, compliance with tax and accounting standards, clean audits, and proper reporting and controls.
Motivate and lead a high-performance team and provide active mentoring as a cornerstone to career development. Attract, and retain individuals suited to operate in an entrepreneurial environment, requiring a willingness to “roll up the sleeves”, while prioritizing overall strategic execution.
Serve as a cultural leader of a diverse organization, engaging and motivating teams beyond just the financial organization.
The CFO will foster a culture of thought leadership, team orientation, high performance, integrity, and commitment to getting the job done right.
Ability to establish a relationship of trust and collaboration with the executive staff. Help to set the company’s strategic vision and translate it into an operating plan.
Smart, collaborative, and able to communicate clearly. Can talk through difficult issues with colleagues and make decisions based on evidence and argument, not ego or title.
Comfortable and able to operate successfully in ambiguous and rapidly changing growth environments.
Business acumen and stature to gain immediate respect and credibility from team members, investors, shareholders, and other related parties.
Committed to developing customer and partner advocacy across the company.
A proven track record of success, with 10-15 years in senior financial leadership roles and preferably familiarity with startup growth opportunities.
CPA and master’s degree in business administration (MBA) or similar degrees and public accounting experience.
Ideally, our CFO will have consumer marketplace, e-commerce, or luxury brand experience.
