Interim Executive Leadership

Always Customized. Never Customary.

Organizations in transition are organizations at risk, and the risk is greatest when key personnel departures are unexpected. NextLevel provides continuity for clients experiencing financial or operational management vacancies. Our professionals with deep experience spanning operational and financial C-suite and Board positions are able to make an immediate contribution—maintaining business momentum.

We often are engaged on an interim basis in conjunction with a client’s executive search for a permanent replacement. Given that a search process often takes months to complete, our ability to begin working with a client immediately with proven executive talent provides significant value. When a search is completed, we work closely with management to ensure a smooth, efficient and effective transition.

Whether in conjunction with a search or not, by engaging us on an interim management basis, clients are able to continue driving forward with important initiatives, as opposed to being at risk of them languishing due to lack of bandwidth or expertise. Because our professionals are highly experienced in strategic planning and leading the execution of that strategy, including M&A, equity and debt financings, and other growth or restructuring initiatives, we are able to rapidly integrate with client management, and work effectively with others on the senior management team, with their Board and key stakeholders.

Many of the executives on our team have extensive management experience in private equity and venture capital portfolio companies. As a result, we are a proven resource that can be looked to for immediate leadership in everything from general operational or financial management to driving specific initiatives including strategic planning; execution of strategy; operations, capital structure and reporting improvements; liquidity event leadership and support; and sponsor coordination as appropriate.

Our terms are flexible, and our engagement solutions are always customized to match our clients’ requirements and preferences. We can respond quickly and thoroughly to identify and deploy the ideal interim professional on a full-time or part-time basis, and we can arrange monthly, daily or hourly compensation. Our executives are not merely competent; they are exceptionally talented and highly respected.
