Russam and Duff & Phelps are delighted to announce a collaboration to add value to clients going through change, transformation and where immediate results are needed. As organisations transform and adapt to today’s economy—and issues related to COVID-19—the expertise offered by interim executives is invaluable. A flexible leadership option could be the optimal solution for organisations to remain competitive, and highly skilled interim executives offer precisely that support.

Working together we can immediately match available and vetted specialists with the right expertise and deep sector knowledge who can lead on difficult decisions and add value. Every sector and location is covered; vital skills in high demand include financial and operational restructuring, turnaround and change management, IT and digital transformation, supply chain transformation and human resources. On average the interim executive is in role within one week.

We have seen interim executives deliver value in many ways. Clients in every sector, irrespective of shape or size, can achieve strategic, financial and efficiency benefits through the wise utilisation of interim executives. It is a solution that we want to offer our clients as a smart option at this time,” said Eddie Bines, Senior Director, Duff & Phelps.

“Interim is having a renaissance. Our volumes are up over 45% from 12 months ago pre-COVID-19. We have been anticipating this resurgence in demand for interim executives due to their highly flexible structure. This exciting collaboration with Duff & Phelps serves as a brilliant gateway to share the merits of this option to help firms going through change,” said Jason Atkinson, Managing Director, Russam.
