Who we work with

FTSE 250 & global corporations
For established corporations, an interim CEO is well-placed to come in with a fresh pair of eyes – especially in times of crisis. From potential M&As to sudden departures of top-level team members, interim c-suite appointments can offer major benefits.

Medium-sized enterprises / private equity portfolio companies
Continuity of leadership isn’t the only pressure point for businesses of this size. Disruptive technology, accelerating growth, changing customer loyalty, regulatory compliance and the urgency to transform are all top of the agenda. An interim CEO or board member can provide strong, capable leadership to help organisations keep up with the pace of change, especially at points of transition.

Start-ups / venture capital-backed businesses
While many start-up organisations aspire to major success in the long run, not all are equipped to achieve it. By bringing in an interim CEO or board member, fledgling organisations can feel the benefit of a highly skilled individual who can facilitate growth. Interim board members may also enhance the external credibility of a start-up to open new partnerships.

Public sector and not for profit bodies
The public sector faces the long-term challenge of doing more with less. Digital transformation, a move to self-service, outsourcing and an increased focus on the way services are delivered and their community impact all call for the proven operations experience that an interim operations director can deliver A great interim operations director experienced in this sector can help with these challenges as well as bring an understanding of opportunities for new ways of delivering frontline services.
