Interim managers are experienced executives who help to lead companies out of crises and overcome challenges in an absolutely discreet, responsible and confidential manner. For example, if a company suddenly finds itself without a manager, in the event of financial problems or during company restructuring In phases of rapid growth or expansion, an interim manager helps to cope with the additional workload and facilitate any transition to new operational managers.
