Management Partners assists local governments with a range of interim management placements.

Interim City Manager and Chief Executive Placement

Management Partners helps governing bodies quickly find the right interim chief executive. An interim executive gives elected officials time for a thoughtful search for their permanent hire. An experienced interim brings a fresh set of eyes to the way the organization does business and can provide insights to the newly appointed executive.

The Management Partners Advantage:
• Strong network of former city managers and chief executives.
• Efficient process for quickly finding qualified individuals.
• Candidate screening, interviews and negotiations.
