Our client, a Private Equity fund, operates and maintains a Texas-based toll road which was developed to relieve the surge in traffic and congestion in the fast-growing metro area it surrounds.
Over the last few years, traffic on this highway has grown and it will continue to increase. Due to this, our client is looking to better understand the traffic trends and the customer base that underlies this performance in order to drive growth.
Our client is actively looking to bring on board a Growth and Strategic Planning Manager who will be responsible for developing a deep understanding of the traffic trends on this highway, to better understand the customer base, and to completely competitive analyses.
Using considerable amounts of data, this Manager will drive key strategic initiatives to forecast and increase traffic flow to the road. This individual will develop short-term forecasts that input into business processes (annual budgeting, five-year planning etc.) and develop long-term traffic and revenue growth forecasts.
Reporting into the CEO, who is an ex-McKinsey Partner, the Manager will have direct access to the Executive Senior Leadership team and the Private Equity stakeholders. Alongside working directly with the CEO, you will also work with the CFO, COO and FP&A Manager. This is a great opportunity for an individual who is seeking more responsibility and exposure in their careers.
