These examples explain how we can help in a variety of situations:
Brazil Interim Managing Director
An Italian company with an operation in Sao Paulo was beginning to struggle with its sales and profit levels in Latin America and needed to make some changes. The company engaged a Patina executive to take over as Interim Managing Director to lead and affect the turnaround.
China Experience Needed
A global manufacturer made plans to send a high-potential U.S. financial executive to China for the first time to oversee some financial projects in a newly acquired plant/operation. Patina provided a seasoned CFO with 15 years of experience working in China to go along as an on-the-job trainer — and to provide help in meeting some important deadlines.
A large equipment manufacturer was implementing some changes to its global SAP system. Patina provided several IT project executives to help keep this high visibility project on track. The client needed help in Belgium and Germany; and Patina turned to its Senior Management Worldwide partner firm in Brussels to quickly provide a seasoned IT leader to work for over a year in the Benelux region.
Shared Services Operation
A large specialty chemical company desired to establish a shared services center in Poland. Working closely with our Senior Management Worldwide partner firm based in Warsaw, Patina provided an expert who had previously set up and managed one of the largest shared services centers in Poland for a global food and beverage company.
When you need an experienced professional, or team of professionals, to execute and/or manage a special project or key initiative, you can trust Patina to provide the right solution. We match your needs with talented executives who have done it before.
When a key position must be filled on an interim basis, Patina has the proven resources to help. We’ll provide a highly experienced, precisely-matched professional to fill that role on a flexible basis — and we will act with the utmost urgency on your behalf. In some cases, these interim roles become interim-to-hire positions.
Patina can help you complete your management team by providing ongoing, part-time executives in key leadership functions where a full-time role is not needed or desired. This is a great way to have a well-rounded, world-class leadership team no matter the size of your company.
Our Patina Professionals give back by developing the high-potential leaders of the future. Many of our professionals enjoy spending a few hours a month by phone, email, Skype or in person meetings working to develop your up-and-coming talent. This is the most objective and confidential way to implement mentoring and coaching.
