Chief Restructuring Officers (CROs) and interim executive managers have become a mainstay of restructuring processes in the U.S. and Europe. So why has corporate Australia been slow to embrace these change-making roles?

Executive level surge resourcing offers a critical value-add to businesses undergoing a significant change event. This may be to seize opportunities for growth or to restructure a stressed business. Interim experts inject a specialist skill set that’s conditioned to navigate these complexities and ensure the best outcomes for all.

Hear from a panel of four experienced cross-border CROs on:

  • The role of the CRO in North America
  • The development and acceptance of interim resourcing in Australia
  • Example of where the CRO or interim manager can make a real difference, by event and sector
  • The relationship between interim resources and the board, management, lenders and other stakeholders

This webinar will include a live global case study where a CRO is assisting directors to steer a business through a volatile time.
