McDermott + Bull Interim Leaders Senior Managing Director James Hickey and Talent Acquisition + Operations Associate Lauren Ayala have successfully placed an Interim Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) for a private equity-backed company in the Southeast.

The company was recently acquired by a private equity firm, so executive leadership and investors needed to bring in a proven leader with a consultative approach to change management. The organization required tactical leadership to build a foundation for an exceptional HR function – to manage the anticipated growth of the company – as well as best-in-class processes and procedures.

The placed consultant has over 20 years of experience establishing excellent HR teams, leading HR teams, and improving processes and procedures.
