The NorthCo Interim Leadership network.

Reliability – Consistency – No Quibble – Strength In Depth – Mission Focused

The benefits of Interim Managers are well publicised. The NorthCo Interim Management Network is an extensive network of professional Interim Management Executives whose backgrounds span a wide range of sectors and roles across Yorkshire.  Each Interim Manager is qualified to use our Mission Focused Leadership system.

We pride ourselves on the quality and depth of our Interim Management Network’s track record, which comes from a diverse range of industries and sectors and has operated across a broad section of environments ranging from rapid growth to distressed situations.

Team Multiplier

Every Interim Manager has behind the scenes help from the NorthCo Core Team. Our clients benefit from low rate legal support and advice from our in-house legal and employment law team. And non-financial Interim Managers are always supported by a qualified FD, especially in the early days of an assignment and until they understand and trust “the numbers”.

The reputation and integrity of the NorthCo Interim Management Network are critical to us. So, we don’t just send you an Interim Manager and leave them to fend for themselves. It’s not that our interims are not capable, far from it in fact. NorthCo Interim Managers often operate in uncertain conditions, so we believe in providing a secure support network for our Interim’s while on assignment. The support may not be needed; regardless it’s always there, setting our Interim Management Network apart from other providers.

Some of the varied situations the NorthCo Interim Management Network operates within:

Short term cover

We cover all manner of short-term interim management assignments from maternity, operational peaks to sickness cover or specific project management. We can be on the ground quickly if required or for pre-planned events.

Supporting Senior Management during times of change

Often senior management needs at least one stable point of reference while making changes within their organisation. Generally, from an accounting background, NorthCo Interim Managers are well versed in supporting senior management as they make change happen.

Emergency Interim Management

Sometimes you need a safe pair of hands on the ground quickly.

We can have an Emergency Interim Manager on the ground within hours, from a single Interim Manager to locking down an entire business. Let us know before “close of play”, and we will be there at the start of business the very next day. If you call us before 12:00 we will have an Emergency Interim Manager on site as soon as we can get there – we will try to get there to lock up that night.

Distressed Businesses

The NorthCo Interim Management Network frequently works alongside other professional advisors and insolvency practitioners. We work on behalf of our client looking after their interests, alongside the IP, incumbent management team, professional advisors, bankers and other funders.

Distressed Acquisitions

We deploy Interim Managers quickly to work on behalf of our client looking after their interests, securing the value that is in the acquisition rapidly to avoid further “shrinkage”.

Supporting distressed Management

Often management only needs the support of a calm head when the going gets tough, and we can provide that calm head.

However, we often find that when the going gets tough, a void in leadership appears. In this situation the NorthCo Interim Manager will immediately take charge, putting in place a structured plan. We will focus the business and management upon clear and decisive action.

Replacing Management

NorthCo Interim Managers have been “parachuted in” to provide direct support for incumbent management teams or to provide interim leadership, replacing senior management and on several occasions removing them from the business.
