You also carried a great deal of influence with our investors. You were able to capture their attention and they listened to you.

INTERIM MANAGEMENT

“We provide interim C-Level management to assist our clients with growth platforms or unforeseen business challenges.”

Partners at Venture Capital or Private Equity firms often realize when their portfolio firms lack specific management expertise needed to lead key projects or initiatives that require strong operational accountabilities (e.g., corporate acquisition integration, BPO implementation, EMR selection and implementation, business restructuring, etc). Other times, unplanned resignations by key executives require them to hire short term interim support until a new hire replacement is found or a new organizational restructuring is implemented.

Family run enterprises can also be significantly impaired when a savvy founder unexpectedly takes ill or a planned successor decides to pursue other opportunities. Many founders fear their families will not be taken care of if they don’t immediately liquidate their assets knowing full well buyers will take advantage of their unfortunate circumstances. The founder has options available to hold onto the firm until they can either recover from illness or transition the firm's management to another family member or outside executive.

However, there are risks associated with transitioning management to relatives who are not prepared to run an enterprise. Even though it may be the founder's preferred long term intent to have a relative run the firm, those parties may have not yet mastered the skill sets needed to run an entire enterprise. In these situations, interim executives can maintain the trajectory of the business and provide needed mentoring to those who will eventually replace the founder.
If you need short term advice, then hiring Trinovations’ consulting support is the preferred method of engaging our firm. If your circumstance requires immediate decision making authority, then hiring Trinovations experienced and credentialed executives for an interim management assignment is the better option for your firm. We can assume C-level roles providing the leadership ability to maintain momentum, establish corporate priorities, build morale and provide critical continuity for your business. Trinovations does not take on non-executive roles but can direct you to staffing firms that provide that level of support.

Our C-level executives can serve and deliver results in the following roles:

Chief Executive Officer
President and Chief Operating Officer
Chief Commercial Officer
SVP Sales and Marketing
Chief Innovation Officer
Chief Strategy Officer
Chief Restructuring Officer.
