Interim Management

Leadership in a company is essential for success and growth. Without effective leadership in place, it’s easy for all facets of a company to falter. Oftentimes, it’s not the people who hold leadership positions within a company who are ineffective leaders. When economic and business environments change, company operations can go into a state of chaos without it being the fault of management or any other team member within a corporation. At Chikol, we don’t blame people; we help people gain leadership skills that can help turn a company around.

Chikol’s interim management services provide corporations with advisors acting as CEOs, CFOs, COOs and CROs depending on the company’s needs. Through interim management programs, Chikol can assist your business with:

CEO: At Chikol, we know that finding a CEO who is qualified and experienced in a short amount of time is a difficult task. By deciding to implement an interim CEO, you’re allowing your company enough time to find the perfect person for the job, while still being able to focus on your company’s turnaround and restructuring.
