Organizations do not always have in-house executives with the right skills and experience, available at the right time – and the leadership that a business needs right now, particularly when faced with a complex challenge, is not necessarily what it will need for the long term.
Combining the strengths of an interim management firm with a top executive search and leadership consulting firm, Boyden provides the leadership that is needed, when it’s needed. Our interim executives are judiciously selected and have a track record of delivering results, offering distinct advantages:
Speed: An interim executive can be engaged within a very short timeframe, even within days, to readily assume a leadership role.
Expertise: Boyden’s interim executives are highly qualified professionals with substantial expertise who are able to deliver value immediately and very effectively.
Cost: Interims work independently as a flexible resource for a defined period of time and are focused on the client’s return on investment.
Legacy: An injection of expertise from an interim executive can have a lasting and hugely positive impact across the entire organization, operationally, economically and culturally.
Reassurance: The ability to be well-referenced is key to being consistently employed as an interim executive, ensuring high motivation and output.
Boyden partners have the experience, industry access and gravitas to deliver exceptional results. They are search experts, professional advisors and personal mentors.
