What is an interim executive?

An interim executive is an experienced leader at executive-board level that is hired by an organisation to provide expertise on a temporary basis.  They are not an employee in the traditional sense. They are a flexible resource that typically possesses deep experience and expertise in a particular area that is otherwise hard to obtain quickly.

Why an interim executive?

The reasons why you hire an interim executive include:

  • leading an important initiative – where specialist executive expertise is needed, for example a complex divestment or a financial transformation that the substantive post holder is under-equipped to complete
  • creating a new function – where you want executive leadership expertise that has experience setting up and growing that function ahead of transitioning to a permanent executive to drive business-as-usual.
  • bridging the gap between  substantive executive post holders – where you have had a departure from your executive board but cannot afford to have a lengthy gap before a replacement begins (executive search can be a slow process and notice periods for executive talent can be mismatched)

When should you hire an interim executive?

The optimal time to hire an interim executive is when your organisation would benefit from an external viewpoint on managing a crisis or significant transitional phase or transformation. Companies commonly acquire these senior figures from  interim recruitment firms like Practicus that have the specialist expertise with these roles rather executive search firms and volume agencies.

Examples of interim executives

Examples of interim executives include an interim CEO, an interim CFO or an interim CTO. There are as many types of interim executive as there are board room positions.

What is the difference between an acting and interim executive?

An “acting executive” and an “interim executive” may appear to hold identical roles within a business at first glance. However, the board’s expectations of each are far from identical. An acting executive is there to maintain the status quo. An interim executive is expected to change it. You can read more about the difference in our article “what is an interim manager“.
