An Interim Controller ensures follow-up and decision support
A Finance Controller’s (FC) main responsibility is to secure and improve processes for reporting, accounting, and internal control. The role focuses on the current situation and reports results and whether the business is achieving its goals.
A Business Controller (BC) is responsible, among other things, for the analysis and follow-up of the business in order to support the management with decision support. The role focuses on the future.
By developing the right decision-making basis, management can make the right strategic decisions.
An interim Controller quickly enters the business and carries out assignments to, for example, clear up the mess, set up structures and processes, build up the function or fill a vacancy when it is necessary to have the right expertise. An interim manager can start the assignment immediately and is used to driving and implementing changes.
The Interim Managers we work with have at least 15 years of strategic and operational experience in FC or BC from various companies and often in an international context.
