Interim CHRO urgently needed for Software Portco


Firm needs top interim CHRO for fast growing portco 

A managing director came to us with a critical need for an interim CHRO for their software portfolio company. Having recently experienced meaningful growth through M&A, the portfolio company urgently needed a top interim CHRO to act as a strategic HR partner to the CEO and Board during the integrations. The managing director was looking to match the portfolio company with an interim CHRO who could drive cultural alignment, improve organizational design, support M&A integration, and engage a deeper pool of talent, among other things. They quickly needed a specific hire, with PE experience, industry knowledge, and M&A background. 

BluWave identifies three pre-vetted interim CHROs with industry related background 

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 CHROs 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 interim executives from our invitation-only Intelligent Network that fit their exacting needs. 

Portco engage exact-fit CHRO for interim position

Quickly after the initial scoping call, the PE firm and portfolio company were introduced to three PE-grade interim CHROs that specialized in M&A in the software industry. The client selected their ideal choice and was able to confidently move forward with a strategic thought partner to lead HR in the fast-growing portco. The company ultimately ended up hiring the interim CHRO for the full-time role.  

“BluWave’s service is easy to use and extremely helpful. Within our tight timeline, they easily connected us to select interim CHROs who had knowledge of the technology sector and availability in the timeframe we needed.”
