Interim GM

The client:Case-Study_Interim-GM

Watermark’s interim business was approached by a Queensland based, ASX listed infrastructure organization that delivers and manage major projects over the next few decades in Queensland. The design and construct phase is due for completion in 2012.

The brief:

One of the organizations senior managers was unexpectedly unable to work due to ill health and therefore, in this critical final phase of construction and completion, a need for an Interim Manager was necessary. There was a need for a senior manager with the relevant industry experience as well as functional expertise with major infrastructure projects, build and construct experience and very specific experience in road and tolling.

Watermark’s solution:

Within forty-eight hours Watermark Interim identified a highly experienced manager with all of the relevant expertise gained both here in Australia and internationally who had recently returned from Europe with the exact skills and experience required.  Within 48 hours he had flown to Queensland for an interview and was placed in the organization within 1 week of taking the brief.

The outcome:

The interim manager was placed on a 12 month fixed term contract to manage the various projects through to completion and draw on his years of experience to add value from day one.  He has successfully integrated seamlessly as part of the senior management team.
