We want to power a better world – are you ready for the challenge?

KraftPowercon is a global leader in industrial power conversion. And we meet the customer demands of today and tomorrow with innovative solutions, products, and services that ensure efficient, green, and reliable processes.

  • Implementation and ownership of our financial process descriptions
  • Running our annual budgeting process, monitoring performance versus budget, and recommending corrective actions 
  • Act as our finance control function (you analyze, report, and introduce control mechanisms for gross product margins, overhead costs, finance costs, and investments)
  • Developing and maintaining policies for group credit and currency handling (including intercompany trading)
  • Cash flow management
  • Addressing legal matters such as intellectual property issues
  • Ensuring statutory compliances, including tax payments and insurance covers, together with our local finance teams
  • Building even better relations with bankers and investors
  • Engaging in raising new debt/equity and mergers and acquisitions
  • Represent the group finance function and act as secretary at board meetings
  • Corporate governance and structure
