McDermott & Bull, Inc. is Pleased to Announce the Launch of MB Interim Leaders


McDermott & Bull Executive Search is excited to announce the founding and launch of its new company, MB Interim Leaders. With offices throughout Southern California, McDermott & Bull Executive Search has been successfully placing permanent executive leaders in companies for over 10 years serving both public and privately held clients in a variety of industries and functional areas. The firm will employ the same specialized assessment and selection tools that it has developed to recruit difficult-to-find and critical senior level talent over the last decade to now secure interim talent through MB Interim Leaders for both existing and new clients.

“Although MB Interim Leaders focuses on addressing clients’ immediate and short-term needs, we anticipate that our expertise in assessing and selecting the right executive leader for the right project will result in a percentage of clients converting these interim executives to permanent employment,” noted Rod McDermott, President and CEO of MB Interim Leaders.

MB Interim Leaders provides corporate clients who are experiencing time-sensitive challenges with world-class interim leaders who can produce immediate results. MB Interim Leaders’ unique relationship with McDermott & Bull Executive Search provides clients with direct access to the McDermott & Bull Executive Network, a member-based network of over 1,000 executives from a variety of functions and industries. The Executive Network differentiates MB Interim Leaders in the interim engagement space because:

  1. Senior level talent can now leverage their depth of expertise on a project basis without committing to being life-long consultants.
  2. Client companies now have one source for all of their interim leadership needs, including:
    • Executive Leadership
    • Operations
    • Sales & Marketing
    • Supply Chain
    • Human Resources
    • Manufacturing
    • Product Development & Management
    • Engineering
    • Finance & Accounting
    • Information Technology

The MB Interim Leaders team will work closely with the McDermott & Bull Executive Network to continue to grow the talent pool and establish relationships with senior-level professionals who meet MB’s rigorous qualifications to work on engagements with their clients.

“We have begun to hear more and more from our McDermott & Bull Executive Search clients that their needs have expanded from not only requiring permanent executive solutions, but also interim and project-based executive needs. With such a dynamic market, we expect that most companies will be faced with short term challenges or situations where they need someone with the right domain experience that can quickly come on board, hit the ground running, and help them fill these gaps,” commented Rod McDermott. “We believe we’re filling a large need at a time where companies are looking for subject matter experts on an interim basis in an ever-changing environment. We are excited to partner with these companies and offer MB Interim Leaders as a solution to meet these needs.”

MB Interim Leaders is the definitive interim executive leadership resource for companies seeking to address immediate needs, including:

  • Interim Executive Leadership
  • Launch of a New or Specific Project
  • Post Merger or Acquisition Integration
  • New Division or Business Unit Leadership
  • Turnaround or Reorganization

The MB Interim Leaders team includes a Senior Vice President in charge of client relations and business development and a Vice President of Talent Management whose exclusive role is to source and develop quality interim executive leaders to serve the firm’s clients and to ensure quality experiences on each engagement.
