It takes a long time to hire an executive—between 4 to 8 months at the CEO or Executive Director level.
Of course, your business can’t exactly sit still while you search for the perfect candidate. Our clients enjoy not missing a beat during key transitions when our experienced interim executives come in. Combining deep industry experience with functional expertise in areas like innovation and human resources, they step in quickly to help companies fill critical knowledge gaps, maintain momentum on initiatives like driving operational efficiencies or preparing for a business transformation—and then ensure a smooth transition once a permanent hire has been found.
Here are a few examples where companies have leveraged our interim executives.
