Our Expertise

Over the past 30 years, Boyden has built a global network and community of highly qualified interim executives. We provide a truly integrated team approach to executive search and interim management, and collaborate and partner with our clients to develop effective, tailored solutions.

In addition to an exceptional talent pool, our capabilities in interim management are unparalleled in the market, due to various factors:

Top-Tier Focus: We work with a hand-selected pool of interim managers whom we know, trust, and consider to be in the top 10% of candidates.

Rigorous Process: Our process, from briefing to shortlist, interview to contract administration, mid-assignment review to project completion, ensures efficiency, professionalism and discretion.

Exceptional Team: We have vast collective experience and knowledge of the interim management market, and work together seamlessly to lead clients and interim executives through our process.

Global Reach: The majority of our interim clients are located in Europe, with a growing number in the U.S. Our clients also engage interim executives for international assignments in Asia/Pacific and the Middle East.

Our Process

We have a robust and highly efficient process for sourcing and placing our interim executives:

  1. Enquiry: A prompt response and assessment of the client’s needs to determine whether an interim executive is the best solution
  2. Briefing: A detailed conversation or meeting to fully understand the business and context of the requirement; outline objectives, timelines, budget and required candidate competencies, background and sector knowledge
  3. Search: Engage with our network of interim executives to source those with the right level of qualifications and background requirements, as well as the best cultural fit
  4. Shortlist: Present a shortlist of 2-3 candidates, with all pertinent details to an agreed timeline
  5. Client Interviews: Client selects candidates to meet and interview
  6. Final Selection: Define terms and manage contractual administration

Throughout the assignment, we stay in regular contact with the interim executive and the client to monitor progress and performance through our proven reporting system. When the assignment draws to a close, we meet with the client and the interim executive to ensure a smooth handover and transfer of knowledge, and to review relevant insights gained through the experience on both sides.
