Odgers Interim saves clients £130m in last 12 months
Odgers Interim – one of the country’s leading interim management recruitment firms - has this week announced that it has saved its UK clients £130m in the last 12 months (ending April 2013).
The figure – the biggest in the company’s history – was confirmed following a comprehensive survey initiated at the end of April asking for the total amount of savings made by each interim whilst in post. Principle projects undertaken included financial management, commercial relationships, procurement contracts as well as new product development, the creation of new revenue streams, HR support, new business strategies, mergers, acquisitions and restructuring.
The news follows the recent announcement that during the same period Odgers Interim’s own revenue increased from £21m to £27.5m – a total rise of 31%.
Grant Speed – managing director of Odgers Interim - said: “As a business we work hard and take our time to identify the individual goals for each client and brief. Investing in an interim takes thought and trust so our job is to find the right person who adds value - whether that’s financial or some other measureable. That can only be done when aims, outcomes and timescales are clearly defined and managed from the start.
Grant added: The news that £130m has been saved proves our approach works and the ongoing challenge for us is to maintain that focus as we believe this is what sets us apart from our competitors. I work with a talented team and every person in it shares the same vision which both reassures our clients and instils a sense of confidence in our abilities.”
