TTG Interim was approached by a private equity portfolio client that recently learned their Chief Financial Officer was resigning. This is a large enterprise organization providing behavioral analysis and autism services to children.
Due to the short timeline of the incumbent’s departure and the critical nature of the role, it was a top priority to find a leader that had previous experience in the company’s specific industry in order to quickly fill this void. The organization needed a seasoned leader that could act as an advisor to the existing finance leaders during this transition. TTG Interim quickly delivered several highly qualified candidates within a matter of days that not only met but exceeded the client’s criteria.
We quickly sourced our network of vetted CFO candidates with prior PE-backed experience in addition to behavioral health industry experience and found a local candidate that was readily available and seeking new interim opportunities. We shortlisted three qualified candidates, the client interviewed each candidate, and quickly narrowed down to the ideal candidate for their organization before officially extending an offer for the interim leadership role.
The entire search from first client discussion to the day the candidate started the assignment was a total of six days. Initially seen as a short-term solution to fill a sudden void, the interim professional has made a huge impact, and the team has decided to retain them on a long-term basis in a fractional capacity.
