Financial services firm Duff & Phelps has launched a new interim executive matchmaking service aimed at peer-to-peer lenders and other businesses.
The Executive Solutions offering gives businesses access to Duff & Phelps’ network of executives who can be hired temporarily to help solve problems or meet a specific target.
Businesses can opt to hire interim executives in a variety of situations including growth scenarios, managing a crisis, developing new products and ventures, or providing hands-on management of restructuring or turnaround situations.
“This new offering is to ensure businesses are able to access the specialist management skills and experience they might need to sustain and grow their business,” Eddie Bines, senior director of restructuring advisory at Duff & Phelps, said.
“We are able to utilise our developed network of established interim executives to match immediately available and vetted specialists with the relevant expertise and deep sector knowledge who can take the lead on difficult decisions and challenging situations.”
An executive can be provided within 48 hours on average.
“Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have seen heightened demand for vital skills, including financial and operational restructuring, turnaround and change management, IT and digital transformation, supply chain transformation and human resources,” Bines added.
“With an average turnaround of 48 hours for presenting interim executives and a week to starting in the role, we can offer businesses of any size and in any sector great pace and agility.
“Importantly, we will identify at least three of them so businesses can choose the one that fits best.”
