Our sustainably developed Interim Manager Network offers temporary solutions for difficult management tasks.

We fill interim C-level executive positions (CEO, COO, CRO, CFO) and openings for plant managers, production managers, distribution managers, purchasing managers and international project managers in our core sectors, which include automotive, electrotechnology/electronics, mechanical and plant engineering, medical technology, aviation as well as process and metal industries.

Through a combination of international market knowledge and local market data, we fill both national and international high-ranking interim mandates. We personally know all interim managers appointed by Staufen AG; these managers have decades of leadership experience as well as comprehensive technical and professional expertise. Our interim managers also have lean management know-how, which will be applied if requested by the customer. Awards that stand as a testament to the abilities of our experts include “Swiss CFO of the Year, 2012”, “International Best Factory Award” and “BMW Best Project Management Award”.

Collaboration between our customers and interim managers is transparent and honest. We place great importance on a sustainable, long-lasting partnership between all those involved. This is why we act quickly, efficiently, and bindingly.
