Why use an Interim Controller?

The termination or unexpected departure of the Controller creates a gap in the leadership team. If unaddressed, this gap can lead to team morale issues and downstream turnover, late production of critical financial reporting and gaps in adherence to established policies and procedures. Our Interim Controllers can help fill the gap and provide a clear context for a full-time replacement.
