Vice President Financial Planning and Analysis

The Vice President FP&A will play a critical role in driving the financial planning and analysis for all critical areas of the business: direct cost (fleet, commissions, operational labor), personnel cost, staffing, and budgeting to provide clarity and deep insights into our corporate finances. The VP FP&A is centrally responsible to drive critical budget initiatives, performance monitoring, process improvements within FP&A, and report monthly to the North American Leadership Group as well as integrate in group-wide reporting cadences with the executive board. Considering SIXT’s material growth in the Unites States, this role is both: art and science focusing resources on the critical levers and eliminating noise.

This role and the FP&A department are crucial in setting the strategic financial direction for North America and aligning with Sixt’s global mission.

  • Collaboration: Work closely with Revenue Management, Fleet Analytics, HR, Operations, cross functional/continental teams, and other key departments to ensure staffing needs are met and aligned with financial considerations
  • Continuous Improvement: Spearhead initiatives to improve financial processes, adopting best practices and state-of-the-art tools to enhance efficiency and accuracy
  • Stakeholder Communication: Regularly engage with senior leadership, including the SVP Finance, providing timely updates and strategic recommendations
  • Leadership: Guide, mentor, and develop the FP&A team to foster a culture of excellence, continuous learning, and innovation.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Business, Economics, or related field
  • MBA or relevant advanced degree is preferred
  • 10+ years of progressive experience in FP&A, with a focus on personnel cost, staffing, and budgeting
  • Strong experience in the car rental or mobility industry is a plus
