Expertise

We have helped hundreds of companies successfully manage their changing world through introducing interim leadership. Our passion for interim management and absolute commitment to transparency and efficiency makes Holdsway the first choice for finding the best interim leadership available in the market.

Interim Management
Holdsway are ranked as one of the UK’s fastest rising interim firms. We believe that interim management is about providing leadership for a period of time. Good interim leadership is about sharing knowledge, fresh ideas and insights, and injecting a positive influence to deliver enduring results. It is about people harnessing their expertise and their networks to deliver positive change. Above all, interim management is about spreading new thinking, fresh ideas and best practice by experienced managers and executives passionate about helping others.

Interim leadership is the management of transition, change, uncertainty or crisis by a suitably bench-marked and over-qualified, proven executive commissioned on an assignment basis. The key is knowing a good interim when you meet them – then being able to find more of them.

Good interim leaders are proactive, focused on results and have significant change, transition, programme or crisis management experience. Effective communicators, they will reassure management teams, share their knowledge and expertise and deliver legacies of enduring and positive outcomes and operational improvement.

Focus
We are experts in providing immediate hand-picked shortlists from our network of proven interim Board, Executive, Programme and Turnaround leaders. This is our focus. We know our panel of interims well, and they know how to share knowledge, experience and implement positive change in organisations. Their ability to deliver immediate interim leadership has helped our clients achieve enduring results.
