Case Study: Interim CIO, Industry Sector: Private Equity

Our CIO Interim Practice supports Organisations and Boards experiencing change and transformation, gap management challenges, and pressure points. A confidential service built on over 40 years of experience, our networks of Interim Executives allow us to introduce trusted senior Interim Managers within days so that business momentum is not lost.


Norman Broadbent Interim Management were asked to support the COO of a leading European mid-market Private Equity firm. ‘Top 5’ in its field, they needed to find a senior Interim Head of Technology to initially work alongside, then take over from the CIO. The were a number of immediate issues to deal with, but primarily the management had lost confidence that Technology could deliver to the organisation. This meant more management time was being spent addressing shortfalls, downtime and other issues, while limiting strategic development. In addition, the board wanted an IT leader who could not only “get it done”, but also one that could contribute to Portfolio activities as well. The Board were keen for us to support the COO and provide a ‘C’ level Interim Manager who would right the ship, get technology working again and start a review , rebuilding confidence throughout the organisation.
