The Boyden Difference

Boyden is the only global search firm that has made a long-term commitment to providing clients with interim management solutions. Beginning in Europe in the 1990s and continuing in the U.S. since 2005, we have successfully recruited high-performing interim executives to fill a wide range of positions for a diverse group of clients.

In addition to an exceptional talent pool, our capabilities in interim management are unparalleled in the market, due to various factors:

Top-Tier Focus: We specialize exclusively in roles at very senior levels.

Rigorous Process: Our process, from briefing to shortlist, interview to contract administration, mid-assignment review to project completion, ensures efficiency, professionalism and discretion.

Exceptional Team: We have vast collective experience and knowledge of the interim management industry, and work together seamlessly to lead clients and candidates through our process.

Global Reach: Many of our interim clients are in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. We also have clients who engage interim executives for international assignments in Europe, Asia/Pacific and the Middle East.

Our Process

We have a robust and highly efficient process for sourcing and placing our interim executives:

  1. Inquiry: A prompt response and assessment of the client’s needs to determine whether an interim executive is the best solution
  2. Briefing: A detailed conversation or meeting to fully understand the business and context of the requirement; outline objectives, timelines, budget and required candidate competencies, background and sector knowledge
  3. Search: Engage with our network of interim executives to source those with the right level of technical ability, and very importantly, the best cultural fit
  4. Shortlist: Present a shortlist of 2-3 candidates, with all pertinent details to an agreed timeline
  5. Client Interviews: Client selects candidates to meet and interview
  6. Final Selection: Define terms and manage contractual administration

Throughout the assignment, we stay in regular contact with the interim executive and the client to monitor progress and performance.
