Job Description

One of Vaco's priorities is for a client in the Dallas area on the hunt to add a Accounts Payable Director to the team.

They are a global, mid-market shop that has an "employee-first" mentality and culture where they truly try to build a collaborative environment and have an aggressive growth trajectory (via acquisition as well.) The company has been through several transformations in the last 2 years and potential individuals should be okay with an unstructured environment.

The position is responsible for being a member of the leadership team that drives the strategic and tactical direction in Accounts Payable. This position includes supervision of Managers and reports to the VP Controller.

  • Direct the Accounts Payable team to provide accurate and timely processing of disbursements of obligations to vendors.
  • Oversee the hiring, training, assigning, counseling, disciplining, terminating, and directing of staff and perform annual merit reviews in a timely manner
  • Interact with upper management and external customers on a regular basis as well as other internal customer departments to integrate solutions that meet the company's goals both financially and operationally
  • Establish, enforce, monitor, and update the internal controls, policies, and procedures to protect the assets of the company, comply with regulatory requirements, and meet demands of the growth of the business as needed
  • Responsible for planning and design of Accounts Payable to accommodate new volume, changes in technology, and compliance matters
  • Improve AP procedures, processes, and staff productivity by monitoring department metrics against published benchmarks and assessment against AP best practices
  • Responsible for the integrity of the Accounts Payable vendor master files, including proper controls around new vendor setup and maintenance
  • Oversee the proper identification of 1099 vendors and accurate and timely reporting as required by the IRS
