- How soon would an interim manager be able to start?

This is a question we are often asked. The answer is: "Sooner than you think!" Someone who recently had the chance to experience this is the CEO of IV Group, Arnaud Houllemare.

Urgent need for an experienced manager

Three weeks ago the Frenchman who works at the Group's Chinese branch in Suzhou (90 kilometres west of Shanghai) visited Norway on business. That's when it happened:

"An urgent need for an experienced manager arose and the situation was very critical. I called Tor at InterimLeder AS and explained the situation. From there things moved very quickly! This was a Monday and we were conducting interviews the next evening in Oslo with three excellent candidates. On Wednesday morning I decided who to go for and he started the following Monday," explains a very satisfied Arnaud Houllemare.

Extremely responsive with first-class candidates

Today the interim manager is well under way with the assignment at IV Group and Houllemare is clearly happy with both the process and the result:

"The incredible thing about InterimLeder is that they are extremely responsive, as well as the exceptionally high level of the candidates they presented to us. We were faced with a critical situation and without the support and help from InterimLeder it would have been a very difficult time to get through," Arnaud concludes.
