Odgers Interim builds on Public Sector practice with new appointment
Odgers Interim – the specialist in interim management appointments – has further strengthened its core team after appointing Suresh Lal to its Public Sector interim management practice. Suresh’s new role as a consultant will see him placing interim executives across all social housing registered providers in the UK. After graduating with an Honours degree in Geography from Brunel University, Suresh worked as a trainee auditor with the Audit Commission before joining Michael Page where he spent six and half years working with social housing clients across London successfully delivering on a number of senior interim appointments.
Originally from Wolverhampton, Suresh now resides permanently in London and will be based out of the London office.
Grant Speed, Managing Director of Odgers Interim, commented: “Our Public Sector practice is an integral and growing part of the business and Suresh’s arrival is the next step in its evolution. He boasts some first class experience and is already adding real value to an already dynamic team.”
Suresh added: “Odgers Interim is renowned for its talent and expertise so I’m delighted to now be part of that. My remit is UK wide which allows me to get a full understanding of the marketplace as well as the specific needs of our clients and candidates. The next few months will be challenging but I know there is real scope for development which is an exciting prospect.”
