Interim Management

Our A&M team of seasoned executives is prepared to step into interim management roles and address a wide range of business situations:

EXAMPLE 1: Buyout of a healthy, family owned, and privately held enterprise. Family members are cashing out and leaving gaps in the organizational structure. The opportunity is too great to pass up but it is not practical to recruit a complete senior team in advance of the close.

EXAMPLE 2: Buyout of an undermanaged, modestly performing enterprise that needs to elevate its levels of professionalism and business sophistication in advance of hiring permanent leadership. Further, the enterprise is in a leveraged environment and needs to adjust how it operates, forecasts and reports to stakeholders.

EXAMPLE 3: Existing portfolio company experiencing a significant sea-change in the form of an industry shake-up, loss of a major customer, or a macro-economic shift. As a result, existing management does not have the right tools or experience to navigate through the upcoming uncertainty and challenges in order to preserve enterprise value.

EXAMPLE 4: Carve-out of a business segment and simultaneous merger into an existing portfolio company (the Platform). The Objective in this situation is to allow the existing management team to focus on the day-to-day operations of the Platform business without distraction and allow an experienced team to focus on ensuring a successful combination of the two enterprises.

Whether a company needs expertise to provide a bridge to permanent management, improve operating performance through enhancements to a company’s processes and procedures, plan and drive significant changes in a short period of time, or direct the company through a merger integration, A&M can deliver results.  Our team of professionals can assume interim management roles to provide the leadership required to achieve desired objectives and enhance enterprise value.
