Success stories from the desk
Interim Partners was recently engaged by one of the UK’s premier and global media groups. We were tasked to deliver an interim solution against a trinity of obstacles:
- an LSE delisting
- a concurrent private equity takeover
- the delivery of a highly-acquisitive corporate agenda across Europe
The challenge was to secure an interim CFO, not only possessing an extensive leadership background within the media sector, but also multi-national corporate finance skills. Multinational, pre-acquisition “deep-dive” due diligence and broad post-acquisition integration were also key requirements.
Interim Partners successfully delivered an exceptional individual who received a swift approval from the board, shareholders and the PE investment partner. The interim quickly deployed their skills, knowledge and understanding of the sector to absorb the full breadth of requirements. The interim then proceeded to:
- define much of the operational infrastructure to support the scalability through acquisition
- build extensive financial infrastructure
- embark on reshaping the business following the stock exchange delisting
- perform thorough financial due diligence on multiple acquisition targets
The interim CFO steered the business towards a successful year-end with its new identity as a rapidly growing PE portfolio business.

"The more I practice, the luckier I get"

I liken my approach to golf to my approach at Interim Partners. Always give it 110%, each indifferent shot is an opportunity to improve, a clear goal really helps. Good etiquette really does matter. You don’t need to have the most polished technique to win but you do need a solid repeatable process and a good overall strategy.
