A Better Kind
of Consulting

McDermott & Bull Interim Leaders is the definitive interim executive leadership resource for companies seeking to address immediate challenges by adding critical staff for specific projects or to temporarily add knowledge capital and expertise at the executive ranks.

The major differentiator between us and a major consulting company is that our interim leaders are actually senior executives who have sat in the seat.
