Interim “C” Level Management
During times of transition or after an unexpected departure by one of your senior leaders, we can position an interim executive in place to minimize business interruption, while we work to source a permanent candidate and long-term solution. This enables your company to be more selective during the hiring process and avoid quick and risky hiring decisions.
