As CompassPoint’s research demonstrates, “The use of interim EDs represents and powerful capacity-building strategy, one we believe nonprofits should carefully consider when addressing the challenges of their next leadership transition”.
IES has over 75 Associates who are seasoned business leaders from a variety of different industry sectors and nonprofit organizations. Our nonprofit interim executive leaders can fill vacated Chief Executive Officer, Executive Director, COO, CFO and other leadership roles at nonprofits. All IES executives bring a wealth of successful nonprofit leadership experience to their assignments, a history of senior level responsibility and accountability, management team-building skills, membership in the “IES support network” and access to an extensive “knowledge base” of for-profit and not-for-profit management best practices.
Moreover, our professional interims, and our IES Partners who are support resources throughout our engagements, specifically focus on stabilizing and strengthening clients’ organizations and building the capacity of their staff and board so that they are able to sustainably achieve their mission and attract and transition to an ideal permanent leader.
Why is interim leadership such a great opportunity to strengthen a nonprofit?
