The Need
Immediate Interim Support for Vital PE Operations

A lower-middle market PE firm urgently required an interim VP/associate level resource with skills in report writing and modeling. This need arose amidst the transition of their firm’s location, resulting in the departure of two key young employees.

The Challenge
Rapidly Securing a Local, Qualified Professional

The PE firm faced the dual challenge of quickly securing a local candidate who could also effectively manage the responsibilities of the departed employees. The interim professional needed to possess the capability to work remotely while being available for in-person collaboration, given the ongoing deal and operational adjustments.

How BluWave Helped
Connecting with an Ideal Match

BluWave responded swiftly to the firm’s request by introducing a VP-level candidate who had recently moved to the East Coast and was seeking a full-time role. Open to interim work, this candidate was well-positioned to fill the immediate gap in the firm’s operations.

The Result
Exceeding Expectations, Seamless Integration

The interim VP quickly integrated into the firm, demonstrating both exceptional technical skills and strong interpersonal abilities. Their contribution significantly eased the firm’s transition period, providing stability and continuity in operations during the search for a permanent replacement.

Exceeded our expectations from both a technical and interpersonal perspective. Very good technical skills and very good interpersonal skills.
