This case study presentation provides insights into the Treasury challenges of a fast-growing company. The workshop focuses on Ebusco, a Dutch manufacturing company of fully electric buses and associated charging infrastructure. Ebusco’s goal is to contribute to a better and healthier living environment by making sustainable, emission-free transport of people the standard.
After a successful IPO in 2021, the need arose to set up a complete treasury department, matching the company’s ambitions for international growth. Ebusco decided to follow a two-step approach: to search for a Treasury Manager and, simultaneously, build up the treasury department. Within seven months after the start of the project, Ebusco’s new treasury structure was up and running in around ten countries around the globe. Thanks to a well-managed process with all parties involved and a strong commitment from the Ebusco staff, Ebusco successfully achieved its goal to set up a complete treasury department; a future-proof department that is ready for strong international growth in a controlled manner.
This case study is a great example of how a new treasury organization can be set up at a very fast pace in a challenging environment.
Speakers: Jan Hermans, Treasury Manager – Ebusco & Guus Groote Schaarsberg, Senior Associate – Orchard Finance
