Interim Management

Interim management’s origins date back to the 1980’s. During recessions companies reduced layers of management and these Executives were often ‘leased back’ by their previous employers as and when needed. Through each successive decade, interim managers have become a critical part of the workforce, providing highly focused skills to solve the immediate needs of organizations.

Our executives meet the needs of our clients in the following scenarios:

  • Sudden departures
  • Leaves of absence
  • Merger, acquisitions and integrations
  • Change initiatives and turnarounds
  • Joint venture and strategic alliances
  • Expansion to new markets
  • New product launches
  • Improvement of processes 

In most cases the benefit of resourcing an Interim Manager can be quantified in financial terms through saved money, improved sales or time. Mandrake not only maintains a dedicated roster of highly qualified candidates for interim roles, but we are also able to quickly source new talent to meet the challenges of every organizational need.

"Stefan is not only an Executive Consultant with a track record of few hundred completed C-level searches, but the CEO of one of Canadian's best Executive Search and HR Consultancy firm. He is a strategic advisor to numerous senior level executives (Supervisory Boards and Board of Directors) as well as a coach and mentor to many professionals. His entrepreneurship experiences, abilities and achievements are both well recognized and appreciated by world's known YPO. He is a person one can trust, rely on, expect that he would deliver, enjoy his companion and sense a of humor, admire his wisdom and values, and respect him for what he stands for both as his family is concerned and the business he runs. What is quite unique about him is that being extremely blessed to be successful, he constantly remembers about those less fortunate and in need. He is an initiator of many undertakings to raise money, support and help others financially. One of the few ones that I would dream to work with if I had a chance to. Without any hesitation I would encourage any of my Clients to work with Stefan in Canada."
