Who are Interim Managers?

Go back to Services

Interim Managers are highly experienced, results oriented executives and / or specialists with usually 15+ years industry experience in top management roles. Typically they have played key building roles in their professional roles & now their focus is applying their knowledge to new situations. Some are entrepreneurs who have sold their businesses and want to bring their knowledge and expertise to new businesses.

They are independent senior executives, who enter an organisation to solve a particular issue and exit after the problem is resolved. They are not consultants- while a consultant acts in an advisory capacity, Interim Managers are very hands on and involved throughout the assignment. Roles covered can be any senior management position- such as CEO, CFO, head of sales, marketing or specific project managers.

Interim Managers are used on a short to medium term basis (averagely 6 – 9 months) for high impact roles. Assignments can be part time or full time.
