Case Study: Interim CEO

The client:

A high profile, national professional association, requiring an Interim CEO at short notice.

The brief:

The organisation required an Interim CEO to provide immediate expertise to cover for a period of absence for the incumbent. An interim solution was required for an unknown period of time but for at least a gap of 3 months. The Interim CEO was required to maintain team engagement, provide leadership and also to add their expertise in Governance and Risk which was a focus for the organisation right at that time.

Watermark’s solution & outcome:

A shortlist of pre-qualified candidates was put together within 4 days. The list of suitable candidates, all available immediately, were interviewed and a successful candidate was appointed within two weeks. This allowed for a seamless level of engagement within the team and a strong and experienced CEO adding value to the board at a time when Risk and Governance needed to be addressed and focussed on.

Client testimonial:

"Exceptional service to have an Interim CEO in role within 2 weeks of first contacting Watermark and then being able to choose from several excellent candidates".
