We Believe In People

At the worst possible moment you need the best possible manager, to digest an acquisition, to face a sudden crisis, or to conduct reorganisation. All of these circumstances can mean that conventional management may be unable or unwilling to do the job.

The issues of these exceptional moments require exceptional abilities. We understand that, if you are in such a situation, you need this manager quickly.

That’s the reason why our founders – the leading executive search firm Egon Zehnder and the Dutch Consulting Group Boer & Croon – in 1989 were the first that combined these two elements and pioneered Interim Management in Europe. During the recent 30 years we have expanded to 20 countries and performed more than 10,000 projects to become The Global Leader in Interim Management.

EIM is an international partnership incorporated in Switzerland, operating under the #oneEIM concept all over the world. This global mindset ensures breakthrough results and the same level of quality. Everywhere. Everytime.

Together we can find the solution you are looking for

About Bohuslav

Bohuslav leads companies and their managers through complex changes resulting from crisis, restructuring or post-merger integration. He focuses on working with private equity firms and international corporations. His strength lies in developing a transformation strategy and leading of multi-cultural teams.

Bohuslav has international experience, he has been active in interim management for several years, speaks several languages, and has extensive experience from numerous projects.

A Cooperation for Excellence

The successful completion of our 10,000 assignments is based on EIM’s unique project management methodology. This revolves around a three-way collaboration between the client, the interim manager and a senior EIM Partner.

EIM Partners are senior executives with line management experience and practical consulting knowledge, who take overall responsibility for the transformation projects.

Working in partnership with the client, the partner quickly establishes an understanding of the situation, and draws up recommendations for appropriate actions to improve it. Our search for the right interim manager starts immediately after this stage.

The EIM Partners remain in charge of the assignments. Followig the EIM Project Methodology, they continually assess progress, voice an unbiased point of view and, when necessary, bring additional skills and/or knowledge into play from our global network.

This collaborative approach with continuous reviews ensures that we remain flexible enough to react quickly to any change of course imposed by developing needs or new requirements. Any additional resources necessary can then be called up from our pool of managerial resources.

Towards the end of the assignment, the EIM Partner develops, in collaboration with the client and the manager, a handover plan for the new permanent management team, to ensure a lasting continuation of the successful result achieved.
