TRANSITIONAL MANAGEMENT

SERVING IN INTERIM MANAGEMENT POSITIONS DURING PERIODS OF CHANGE

When an organisation or client system is experiencing turmoil and change, it is often necessary to retain a seasoned interim business management executive to lead the organization back into calm waters. We recruit a team of experienced business executives, including CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CIOs and other business managers who have the maturity and experience to provide this form of extraordinary leadership. Our interim executives provide a stable atmosphere needed to propel the organization forward. We can also assist in the recruitment of a permanent CFO through our network of strategic business partnerships.

A list of the types of executive positions we commonly are retained for follows:

  • Interim Chief Financial Officers
  • Interim Controllers
  • Interim Business Office Directors
  • Interim Third Party Reimbursement Directors
  • Interim Chief Information Officers
  • Interim operational executives (CEOs, COOs, and other operational executives)

MANAGEMENT OF FINANCIAL TURNAROUND SITUATIONS

Business organizations sometimes find themselves in a downward spiral and are facing severe financial difficulty. The main challenges management faces in these organizations are to reverse the losses before they are fatal to the organization, stabilize a shaky situation, or sell or merge the organization with another organization. DFRC has the experience to assist management in facing and conquering these challenges. Many times we are able to successfully turn these facilities around and improve their financial viability. We can also assist organisations in selling or merging with another organization that is to the benefit of all parties.

STRATEGIC OPTIONS REVIEW

We have built our reputation on maximising value for stakeholders. Our experience shows that a thoroughly planned and controlled review of a business’s strategic options can further enhance value ahead of an exit.

The objective of any strategic options review is to position the business in the most appealing way for potential purchasers/investors thereby increasing the exit value for all stakeholders.

As part of our bespoke service we work with companies to maximise the profitability of the business in a given timeframe through the creation of a value dashboard. We undertake a thorough review of the potential buyer group and assess how different buyers will value the business to position it accordingly. We also conduct a review of key due diligence material to ensure any risks are mitigated through our review process and don’t impact price during an exit.
