Interim: President of US Subsidiary of UK Company

The United Kingdom parent company of a leading provider of cash management systems for the retail and financial industries approached Executives Unlimited to locate an Interim President for their operations in Atlanta, Georgia. This position required strong execution skills, sales leadership, operations and previous experience as a President. Their goal was to replace the existing United States General Manager within two weeks time. The position also required previous experience in cash handling systems, turnaround experience as well as immediate availability.

While this was certainly an aggressive timeline with a specific need, in less than one week Executives Unlimited identified and presented three exceptional candidates who met the position specifications. The client arrived in the United States to interview the candidates and selected the former President of a $65 million manufacturer of electronic money handling systems and software. The successful candidate reported for his first day of work three days later.
