Sarah Shaw named IIM consultant of the year
Odgers Interim Partner Sarah Shaw has been named Provider Consultant of the Year by the Institute of Interim Management (IIM).
Sarah, who leads our Education practice, beat more than 500 nominated consultants to win the accolade, which is voted for by the interim management community.
The annual guide from the IIM, now in its eighth year, identifies the leading service providers and offers advice for executives considering becoming an interim manager.
Sarah Shaw, Partner and Head of the Education practice at Odgers Interim, said: “It’s fantastic to have received so many votes of support from the interims I work with and place on assignment. A massive thanks to all those who contributed to the survey and also to the IIM for highlighting the hard work of the industry.”
“Interim executives are now an integral part of the education sector and for higher education institutions in particular. Clients are looking for high quality and experienced professionals, combining decisive leadership with a commercial perspective to deliver against the challenges they face. I’m looking forward to helping clients hire the right leaders for them, and helping executives secure the best assignments for their skill sets and experience.”
Grant Speed, Managing Director of Odgers Interim, adds: “Sarah is a brilliant consultant, with nearly two decades of experience in the industry. The accolade reflects Sarah’s tireless commitment to the needs of both clients and candidates, her exceptional knowledge and understanding of the sector and her leadership of what has become one of our most important practice areas.”
“Interim management is a fast-paced industry, and more and more leadership teams are searching for specialist expertise to lead transformational projects and bridge management gaps. Interims are a valuable external resource with remarkable skills to deliver fundamental change.”
