What is an Interim Executive?
An interim executive is an experienced professional who can tackle a challenge or leverage an opportunity. Interim executives jump right in during times of transition, support the staff and board, manage the day-to-day, and sustain important initiatives to stabilize the organization and improve the chances of a successful permanent executive search.
Why an Interim Executive?
Because of their extensive experience, an interim executive can deploy quickly so that momentum of the organization is not lost, fundraising stays on track, and program objectives continue to be met during transition times. Interim executives are also skilled at tackling complicated problems that may be hindering the organization's performance.
When Should an Organization Consider an Interim Executive?
If an executive director/CEO, leaves suddenly or needs to take an extended leave, appointing a seasoned interim executive is the best way to ensure the organization remains stable, and continues to move forward. In situations where a departing or underperforming executive needs to be replaced, an interim executive can ease the sense of crisis and disruption and re-establish staff morale. Additionally, an interim executive provides the opportunity to assess needs and rebuild infrastructure while the search for the permanent executive commences.
