Interim Finance Director (Interim FD)

A specialist Interim Finance Director (FD) may be required for a specific business situation. This could be for a short period of time or to cover extended leave. We have an extensive network of trusted freelance Interim Finance Directors to fit your exact requirements.

At the outset, one of the NorthCo Interim Management team of experienced professional Interim Finance Directors will conduct an initial fact find. This enables us to maintain a very high level of project oversight of each assignment.

How can a NorthCo Interim Finance Director support your business?

Northco Interim FDs all have demonstrable experience in strengthening processes and systems, managing new projects and overseeing periods of change. They will align with your business and objectives and work closely with your executive team to deliver positive results.

A typical scenario might be:

Post-transaction Interim Finance Director: the focus of the assignment is likely to be implementing processes, systems, evaluating and building the team and professionalising management reporting.

Exit/deal support Interim Finance Director: for example, a portfolio company is up for sale and the incumbent Finance Director is an able FD, but has no prior experience in exits or sell side. The Interim Finance Director’s assignment will focus on working with advisers and investors. This ensures the smooth handling of the transaction process and meeting exit expectations.

Our Interim FD’s have been known to work on assignments including:

  • Raising finance
  • Product launches
  • Change management
  • Entering new markets
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Stock market launches (IPOs) & flotations
  • Risk management
  • Compliance
  • Exit planning
  • Private equity and investments

We can also provide Interim Chief Financial Officers and Distress & Turnaround Interim Finance Directors.
