Controller Job OpportunityWho are we?Car-On Automotive Group is Eastern Ontario’s largest pre-owned dealership and we amongst the top 10% volume dealers ( new and used) in the greater Ottawa area.

We pride ourselves in offering best-in-class vehicles in every price point, every make and every model.

We recondition our vehicles to, equivalent or above, manufacturer certified pre-owned standards and have been in the Ottawa market since 1982.We are a family business and the president/owner is present and hands on.

Our primary focus is the customer experience as 62% of our annual sales are from repeat customer and referrals.Physical Location:Our flagship store is located at 1700 Cyrville Rd.

(corner of Innes and Cyrville Rd.) in OttawaOur Stats:With the core management team in place since 1998, we have consistently grown and continue our organic growth with no deceleration in mind.

Annual revenues in 2020 were $21.8M and we have a 20% year over year growth track record over the past 8 years.

After 4.5 months in our current fiscal year, we are on track to close 2021 at 27.8M.Our nimbleness and ability to adapt quickly to changing market conditions has given us a net advantage over our competition and while some in our industry have struggled in 2020, we finished a record year in revenue and EBITDA.We are well funded, own our real estate and financial planning is the cornerstone of our long term strategy.Staff:We have 33 full time and 2 part time employees and plan to grow that to 40 F/T by early summer.The Position:We are looking for a controller to fill a vacancy that has been created as a result of our existing controller deciding to move on after over a decade with us.

This role involves all the day to day operations, reporting and planning with the assistance of a small group of accounting clerks.

We run on a QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions platform.This is a temporary to permanent role.

We are looking for a team member to take us to the next level with increased reporting and analysis.

The ideal candidate is a CPA with an appetite for a challenge.If you are looking for a slow paced environment where you can wind down your career while nurturing your begonias…this is not likely the place for you.This is a fast paced environment where we challenge each other daily and find new and innovative ways to break the mold and make a “newer-and-improved” version.

We are looking for an energetic and out-of-the box thinker that will take us to $40M while holding our feet to the fire the whole time.Challenges Opportunities:We do not have A/R challenges as we work in a “cash-before-product” industry.We have the same consistent vendors so A/P are seldom an issue.There is no liaison with the banks as we have long standing agreements with all the major banks.We have recently moved our portfolio to the Welch Group so you will likely need to work with them for year-end reviews.Compensation Package:The position is a $80-$100K salaried position but we are creative and nimble enough to craft a payplan that will keep our “superstar” candidate motivated.We offer medical and dental benefits, free parking and your very own coffee machine, as you will likely need lots of caffeine to keep up with our pace.Fine Print :This position is only offered to residents of the greater Ottawa area as we have tried “relocations” in the past and it has not served us well.Unless you have a CPA or equivalent designation we will not entertain your resume.Please include a cover letter with your application and send resume to
