Fractional/Interim Leadership

M&A helps clients fill critical roles in a timely fashion with highly experienced professionals who have “been there and done that”. You get the right experienced leader you need quickly, affordably and in a highly flexible manner.

Get in touch and let us know what you’re looking for. We will contact you right away and set up screening calls between you and 2-3 professionals with the right expertise.

STEP 1:
Is your situation right for a fractional or interim executive?

  • Has someone recently left your management team and you are searching for a replacement but can’t afford to have the position remain vacant for the length of the search?
  • Do you prefer to staff a key or new role initially on an interim basis prior to hiring to make sure it is a fit?
  • Are you initiating something new and need someone who has “been there and done that” to lead the effort and mentor the team?
  • Do you have a situation where you need someone highly experienced to create the foundation for change and improvement over the next 6-12 months and then a less experienced professional to execute after that?
  • Do you need an experienced professional but need them less than 5 days a week?
  • Are you missing key “hands-on” skills and experience?
  • Are you missing growth opportunities because you are not moving quickly enough?  Do you lack the knowledge and experience to make the right decisions quickly and exploit these opportunities?
  • Are you lacking the leadership to execute and lead the organization to exploit opportunities and / or create necessary change?
  • Do you have the necessary knowledge and experience to address your current challenges productively?

Step 2:
How an interim / fractional professional can help

  • Fill leadership gaps (CEO, CFO, COO, CMO, CTO, CIO, CSO, CHRO, CRO, etc.)
  • Advance key initiatives (e.g., drive operational efficiencies, expand into new markets, advance new products, improve sales performance and management, initiate a new business, prepare for an exit, M&A due diligence and integration, upgrade financial controls, streamline systems / technology, improve the impact of marketing, plant consolidation, etc…)
  • Add knowledge and experience to your team and lead to the jumps in productivity that comes from being there and doing that before.
  • Mentor and knowledge transfer to other key members of your staff
  • Provide less than full time capacity to add knowledge and experience to your team in a cost effective way
