Interim management industry 'has shown resilience'
The new chair of the Interim Management Association (IMA) believes the sector has shown resilience in the face of difficult conditions in recent years.
Jason Atkinson's appointment was announced by the industry organisation this week, along with new vice-chair Raj Tulsiani.
The pair will be responsible for shaping the vision of the association, raising professional standards and leading the IMA's development over the next three years.
Mr Atkinson commented: "The last couple of years have not been easy for any industry, but the interim management sector has ... demonstrated its value to businesses in these economically challenging periods."
He added that interim management providers remain "incredibly valuable" to employers recruiting for senior roles, despite the recent growth of social networking and other technologies.
The IMA plans to make an announcement regarding appointments to its executive committee later this month.
According to the association's latest market audit, IMA members completed 432 interim assignments in the fourth quarter of 2010.
