Interim CHRO urgently needed for professional services portco


Interim CHRO needed for high growth, professional services portco 

A PE firm managing director came to us with a critical need for an interim CHRO for their professional services platform. Combining three companies to make the platform, the firm urgently needed a PE-grade interim head of HR to deal with contracts, advise future state systems, reconfigure benefits plans, help them migrate off their PEO and stand up their own HR function, and more. Closing on the platform in the upcoming week, the managing director quickly needed to fill this role with an interim who had industry expertise, previous experience with M&A and PE-backed middle market companies, as well as the ability to execute the needed tasks at a high level.

BluWave uses pre-vetted network to find top CHRO options

Leveraging our founder’s 20 years in private equity, we have extensive frameworks for assessing PE-grade interim CHRO needs. BluWave utilizes technology, data, and human ingenuity to pre-map, assess, monitor, and maintain deep pools of interim executives that uniquely meet the private equity standard. We interviewed the PE firm to understand their specific key criteria, and then connected the client with the select pre-vetted CHRO from our invitation-only Intelligent Network that fit their exacting needs.

Firm engages chosen interim CHRO to drive success in portco

Within less than 24 hours of the initial scoping call, the PE firm was introduced to three PE-grade interim CHROs that specialized in M&A and the professional services industry. The client selected their ideal choice. Thanks to BluWave, the PE firm was able to quickly & confidently appoint a top interim CHRO to handle the transitions involved in the platform close as well as lead the HR strategies moving forward.

“BluWave provided us with three top tier options of interim CHROs with relevant previous experience in both the industry and functions of work we needed.”
