Portal provides insight into the role of interim executives, championing the challenges of the pandemic for public, private and private-equity backed businesses
LONDON, UK | GERMANY, Frankfurt: January 13, 2022 – Boyden, a premier leadership and talent advisory firm with more than 75 offices in over 45 countries, launches a new interim management website highlighting the significant role of interim executives in post-pandemic recovery, digital transformation and global growth.
“Organisations are struggling to reskill the capabilities of their existing workforce fast enough to meet changing needs,” commented Lisa Farmer, Global Co-Leader, Interim Management and Managing Partner, United Kingdom & Ireland. “We are committed to helping clients worldwide achieve their goals in complex and challenging markets, by providing world-class, highly experienced interim executives to deliver meticulously defined outcomes.”
The portal provides insight into the senior-level, hands-on strategic consulting and implementation work, specialist content and resources for interim executives.
“The need for rapid and sometimes remote understanding of a client’s business, particularly with covid restrictions, is boosting the use of interim executives, alongside sector transformation, technical advances and shifts in market opportunity,” added Georg Larch, Global Co-Leader, Interim Management and Managing Partner, Germany. “Throughout 2022, we expect more international demand and use of interim executives while the right leader can be found through executive search”.
Boyden identifies the right interim executives to help clients in, for example:
Boyden Interim is distinctive in providing sector specialisation and consistent, cross-border capabilities to clients worldwide, often delivered through collaborative search, leadership consulting and interim colleagues. The global interim team has grown in response to a surge in client demand throughout the pandemic, particularly in the industrial, technology, financial services, healthcare & life sciences, private equity & venture capital and social impact sectors.
Boyden is driving a greater understanding of what this talent demographic can deliver, particularly for private equity portfolios. “Private equity has evolved and developed, both geographically and in terms of sophistication,” comments Anita Pouplard, Global Practice Leader, Private Equity & Venture Capital Practice and Managing Partner, France. “Understanding of interim talent is high in Europe, where this expertise evolved, with the US and particularly Asia planning greater use of interim managers in the near future1”. Interim executives with ESG skills are particularly valuable, with ESG a consistent theme for limited partners, interims and the private equity market as a whole: 78% of limited partners consider ESG factors when investing in private equity funds2.
