Interim Leadership

We work with management to deal with financial underperformance by stabilising the business, managing key stakeholder relationships and building a strong platform for the future.

Recognising that management teams may lack experience in turning around a business, we introduce experienced turnaround professionals who can step into executive or advisory roles in the business, such as chairmen, CEOs, CFOs, chief restructuring officers, operations, marketing, human resources, non-executive directors and advisers/mentors to boards.

PwC has immediate access to candidates from our own network of independent turnaround professionals, all used to operating at board level in businesses in crisis and those requiring rapid change.

  • A key stakeholder group has lost confidence in the existing team
  • You are looking for a change catalyst
  • Your board members or senior management have departed
  • Your team have not had the experience of managing a business in a situation like this
  • You lack the resources to cope with the additional pressures of managing the business in its current situation

How we can support you

  • By helping to restore stakeholder confidence
  • Management resource with the right experience and skill sets

  • Provide optimal value for corporates by disposing of or reinvesting in a non- core, or under performing asset, or in a distressed business
