Executive Management Services
Business can’t come to a halt when companies have a gap in their executive team or face an operational crisis. The pressure for startups to achieve their goals doesn’t let up while searching for the perfect department leadership.
Our executives are available to serve in a variety of executive roles on a fractional basis. We have proven expertise in providing crisis and turnaround advisory services, filling gaps in an existing executive team on an interim basis, and supporting startups and early-stage companies with leadership talent.
Data Privacy & Information Security
When data privacy and information security talent is scarce and budgets are limited, Virtual CISO services are the key to creating and maintaining a healthy security posture and securing the information you handle from accidental breaches and targeted threats.
Our experienced chief information security officers manage your security program on a part-time basis, assessing your environment and vulnerabilities. We provide strategic and operational leadership to identify security gaps and risks, develop mitigation plans, and maintain compliance programs — all designed to protect you, your clients, and your vendors.
Business Systems Optimization
Business systems – processes, culture, technologies, people, data, perspectives, and more – shape our businesses in ways we may not even realize or understand. Business leaders have an opportunity and, perhaps, an imperative to shape their systems in ways that eliminate obstacles and boost results for clients, employees, and stakeholders alike.
Organizations are an interdependent grid of business systems across administrative departments, and our experienced CXOs help optimize the processes, relationships, and activities within and across these systems that enable teams to work smarter, derive enterprise value, and create transformational change. For example, connecting human resources with finance and legal departments optimizes the human capital management function. No department should be an island and we build the bridges that unite them.
Turnaround & Restructuring
Distressed situations require quick, intelligent decision making. The margin for error is slim and the consequences of misjudgment are large. Distressed situations are not for the faint of heart nor for the novice executive.
We combine our years of successful turnaround and restructuring engagements with the latest analytics technology to quickly and accurately assess, diagnose, design, and implement strategies to improve top and bottom lines. Our engagements have run the gamut from small to large companies, but all share one attribute: a result that maximizes shareholder value.
