Interim Treasury Support FMCG Packaging, France

Client Brief

A French based global manufacturer of packaging for FMCG businesses was sold to a financial sponsor by its conglomerate parent. The resulting carve out lacked a stand-alone treasury function and while temporary transition arrangements existed for a period after the acquisition, management engaged PMC to assist with the establishment of a new treasury function.
