Boyden UK appoints head of interim management
“We’re thrilled that Simon has joined Boyden to lead our interim management business”, said John Ellis, a Boyden board member and managing partner of Boyden UK.
“Interim will continue to play a pivotal role in our growth strategy in the UK and globally, as many more clients are seeing the benefits that it can offer alongside permanent recruitment solutions. Simon has an outstanding record in interim management and I am excited to have him join our leadership team.”
Previously, Gough completed a successful nine-year tenure as a partner with another fast-growing interim management leader, where he focused on the private equity and advisory sectors in both pre- and post-deal situations.
Gough is best known for not only placing a gap interim management executive, but rather going well beyond, to identify change and transformative leadership.
Gough has worked with clients such TDR Capital, Lion Capital, Oaktree, Phoenix Equity Partners, Endless, AEA Investors and Northedge Capital, placing Executive Chairmen, CEOs, CFOs,COOs, Managing Directors, Chief Restructuring Officers and other senior interim executives.
“Boyden has always had a strong presence at the senior levels of interim management, which will provide a strong foundation to further capitalise on Boyden’s strong executive search brand”, said Gough. “In addition to Boyden’s excellent team, one of the big attractions to the firm is the ability to support clients on a much broader basis, both in the UK and internationally.”
Interim management is classified as the supply of an executive-level resource for a clearly defined period of time, with an average tenure of six months. Last year, Boyden sponsored the Interim Management of the Year Awards.
