Interim Management Resources

HOWORTH International provides Interim Management –  temporary management resources and expertise for short, medium and long term assignments. As a result of a sudden departure, illness, death, significant change or transition in the organization, ownership changes, mergers, the organization requires a full-time manager at the executive level until a permanent management structure is hired. ​​


HOWORTH International provides experienced Interim managers taking on the title and role for an agreed period of time. Typical Interim management assignments include roles as a CEO, COO, CFO, Controller, President, General Manager, Sales/Business Development Manager, Plant Manager and Division Manager. We can be effective immediately – at your location in the USA or at your international location. For other Interim Management requirements – CIO, CTO, Human Resources Executive, Product Management, Marketing Management – we work with partners to provide those Interim Management resources.

Situations well suited for Interim Management Resources

Fractional/Part Time Management Resources

 

HOWORTH International provides Fractional/Part Time Management. The management needs of an organization vary in terms of growth stage, times of crisis, special projects or other initiatives that are out of the ordinary course of business. Additionally, the leadership and stakeholders of an organization are sometimes not prepared to bring expensive, long term management into the organization for various reasons – financial, not knowing the specific skill set needed, unsure of the performance and capabilities of current management, market performance and many other reasons. 

HOWORTH International provides experienced managers for part time engagements (typically 1 to 3 days per week) for a period of time. Typical Fractional/Part Time Management assignments include – COO, CFO, Controller, General Manager, Sales/Business Development Manager VP, Plant Manager and Division Manager – play an important role in the success of an organization. We can be effective immediately – at your location in the USA or at your international location.

For other Fractional/Part Time Management requirements – CIO, CTO, Human Resources Executive, Product Management, Marketing Management – we work with partners to provide those Fractional/Part Time Management resources.


Situations well suited for Fractional/Part Time Management Resources

  • Growing Company – operational or finance/accounting needs are outgrowing the Operations Manager or Accounting Manager/Controller – Solution: Fractional COO or CFO/Controller engaged for a 1 to 3 day per week assignment until the Company’s operations justify the more senior permanent hire.

  • Foreign Company entering the USA market – Solution: Fractional General Manager or Country Manager to coordinate the evaluation, research and operations of the USA subsidiary/branch.
