“It’s not about money.

It’s about the people you have, and how you’re led.” 

Steve Jobs


Our firm was created to garner the years of experience accumulated by tenured public leaders and to harness that knowledge for the betterment of communities.

  • Variety – Our team of over 200 tenured public executives have managed over 70 different cities and organizations in 15 states and have the maturity and wisdom that is only obtained through experience

  • Flexibility – If you need a department director, we have the most experienced and dedicated professionals ready to serve for as long as you may need (commonly 3 to 9 months).

  • Seasoned Professionals – Although an existing employee is sometimes appointed to fill an interim vacancy, this practice leaves that individual overburdened and unable to be effective. Furthermore, it’s hard to return an existing employee to their previous job. Instead, Interim Public Management provides a seasoned professional – allowing optimal organizational performance.

  • Permanent Engagements – We provide experienced leaders in management for communities and organizations wanting to test drive a potential manager before making them a permanent member of their leadership team.

  • Transitional Experience – We provide managers and directors for temporary engagements: When communities and organizations in transition often need an experienced change agent that won’t stay on permanently.
