Interim executive


Short Term Hire for Long-Term Results

Hiring the wrong executive can be costly – especially when you don’t have time to lose.
Pricing typically starts at $15,000 per month but is determined by client need.

Why Hire an Interim Executive?

Critical Transitions

A leadership gap during times of transition, crisis, or change in an organization can impact your company in a negative way for a long time. We provide a proven executive with a strong track record.

Short Notice

Don’t make the mistake of hiring based on a time constraint! When a permanent placement is unnecessary or hard to find on short notice, we can offer a short-term solution to give your team the time they need to make the right decision.

Lack of Internal Candidates

Oftentimes a company doesn’t have a suitable internal candidate to take over a leadership role. We can help not only fill this space for the short-term but also mentor a high potential employee to fill the role as well.
