Horizon Landscape Contractors – Vice President Finance Search

Update: Search successfully completed, position has been filled!

Horizon Landscape Contractors (Horizon) was established in 1995 by Mike Dougherty. In the early 2000’s Mike’s father Ron and his brother Brian joined as partners in the company. The company has grown to approximately 120 core employees and annual revenues of $30M. The company has locations in Langley, Squamish, and in 2022 Kelowna. Horizon has multiple divisions including landscape construction, earthworks, concrete, woodworking, landscape maintenance snow/salt, park waste management, street tree watering and tree care to commercial, institutional, government, and the residential development sectors. The accounting function has been led by a valued long-term employee who does not have a formal accounting designation. The role has grown beyond his capabilities so a new Vice President Finance (VP Finance) position has been created to lead the finance and accounting team.

The VP Finance will be responsible for evaluating the function, putting the right structure in place, and creating solid systems and processes to support the current business and projected growth. Working with a highly entrepreneurial President who embraces growth, the VP Finance will be able to operate at both a strategic and tactical level. The ideal candidate will preferably have a professional accounting designation, or an MBA coupled with relevant experience, 10+ years of senior leadership experience overseeing accounting, and experience within a high growth, entrepreneurial environment, preferably within the construction sector. Experience with mergers and acquisitions is preferred.
