Interim Partners, the leading provider of interim management solutions, has promoted Simon Gough, Head of their FMCG team (Fast Moving Consumer Goods), to its Board of Directors.
Simon Gough leads one of the UKs most active interim executive teams specifically targeting the FMCG sector.

Although Simon has experience across the entire FMCG sector he has a particular strength in the food and drinks market. As well as placing individual interim executives at board level and below Simon is also frequently instructed to complete placements for small teams.
Doug Baird, Managing Director, of Interim Partners comments: Simon has been a consistently strong performer. He is very well regarded across the FMCG sector where his specialist expertise and in-depth knowledge of the sectors requirements really sets him apart.
