An Interim Executive is a seasoned professional, who is brought in – as a CEO – to lead an organization during times of transition. The assignment is made on a temporary basis during which the Interim Executive performs all the typical operational duties of a CEO or Executive Director. It is wise to bring in an Interim Executive as opposed to rushing into a permanent hire.
A company or nonprofit organization might need an interim executive when:
A CEO departs willingly or unwillingly for any reason
A business turnaround is needed
An organization is in crisis for any reason
A restructure is desired due to loss of key personnel
Preparation for a merger, consolidation or an expansion
