The most in-demand profiles of our interim executive managers
While the position of Chief Executive Officer remains the most requested, as a result of digital transformation, companies are often looking for highly-qualified profiles to support their transformation processes. Highly-qualified interim executive managers play an increasingly broad and cross-disciplinary role. They support a company’s assistance and operational services during the implementation or optimisation of management, administration or reporting tools.
Interim Chief Executive Officer
They are often the best solution when it is required to deal with a major problem which impacts the entire business structure.
Whether it is in the context of development (growth, internationalisation, M&A, reorganisation, etc.) or crisis, the interim CEO can take charge of these high-stakes situations and cover the entire decision-making process of the business. Most frequently, an interim CEO is needed as a result of the lack of managers; immediate takeover of a BU; recovery of an SME, of a subsidiary or a Group; redefinition of the business model, site disposal, the management of an LBO or a merger/acquisition.
In the event of a merger or acquisition, the position of CEO may be temporarily left vacant, often in response to shareholders’ wishes. However, the company must continue to be run unrelenting, so as not to endanger its integrity.
Interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
Business-oriented, they have excellent knowledge and a good command of tools and project management. In general, they perform the following tasks: cash management and optimisation of the WCR (working capital requirement), application of tax and legislative regulations, implementation of new ERPs, search for financing, risk management, etc.
An interim management controller is able to analyse the financial results of your company and to develop, as necessary, a business vision in order to improve profitability.
Some of our interim executive managers in the field of finance have double skills and are able to develop a cross-disciplinary vision, juggling between operations and IT.
Interim Chief Human Resources Officer
These are able to accelerate organisational change. Now they are needed more than ever, due to the impact of the current pandemic on working and management methods (working from home, remote management training needs, new tools, e-learning platforms, 100% digital integration pathways). Our interim CHRO are experts in all relevant law and support companies in the management of social crises, in some cases also involving restructuring.
Interim CIO (Chief Information Officer)
Interim CIOs often carry out cross-functional roles. They support the development of employees’ digital skills, they build the roadmap of the user environment for its hardware, software and security components. They also support the IT departments in the transformation of their operations, their processes into digital processes by selecting the appropriate tools; for example with respect to working from home, or for the repositioning of companies on new distribution channels in order to ensure the maintenance of ongoing commercial activity.
Interim Purchasing and supply chain manager
They deploy a strategy aimed at maintaining a minimum level of profitability during a downturn in activity. They manage the optimisation of costs and processes: they redesign and/or automate purchasing processes, optimise logistical flows and costs, implement lean management, and sometimes also manage the relocation of production. A great contribution provided by the Interim Supply chain manager is their negotiation skills with suppliers. Most of our interim executive managers can also manage the negotiation and implementation of international framework contracts.
Interim sales manager
They are often responsible for analysing the company’s marketing processes and methods. They aim at reorganising sales channels and sales teams in order to preserve or develop the company’s market share.
Interim Plant or Site Manager
They deal with practical production issues. They are required to be particularly flexible and skilled in dealing with everyday problems. They must have exceptional interpersonal skills to be able to defuse the inevitable tensions arising within production teams they are not familiar with.
