Interim managers offer companies the benefit of their extensive experience in the field, independently and in a temporary capacity.
Good interim managers have a healthy dose of entrepreneurial spirit, thrive on challenge, adapt easily to new, changing environments and avoid falling into a rut through continuous improvement and innovation.
Are you interested in working as an interim manager?
At catalize we specialise in executive interim management in finance. We have an extensive network of clients who rely on catalize for the selection of qualified interim managers to fulfil their urgent or temporary needs. For you, that means less of a search and more new potential clients!
A member of your staff is temporarily unavailable (due to sickness, maternity leave, internal transfer, etc.) and there is no colleague who can take over their duties.
You have a project of well-defined scope (implementing a new ERP system, for example), but the required competencies are not available in-house or this would put too much pressure on existing staff.
The sudden or unplanned departure of a key figure within your organisation (such as your CFO) results in the urgent need for an interim manager to ensure continuity of operations. The interim manager will take over their duties until a (permanent) replacement can be found.
Other situations where an interim manager can prove invaluable: making improvements after a negative audit report, transfer pricing and structuring for tax optimisation, setting up management reports, implementing IFRS consolidation, professionalisation of an SME, cost cutting exercises, preparing for an IPO, post-acquisition integration, etc.
Your finance department is in temporary and/or urgent need of reinforcement.
You contact catalize to explain your situation and specific requirements.
