Interim Vendor Selection Lead
Global Storage & Distribution
An American owned, global storage and distribution company, had an ambition to bring its international corporate functions together in a shared services
environment and then outsource the transactional elements of finance to a third party provider.
Hoggett Bowers briefed the client on the benefits of using interim over a consultant and worked exclusively to understand the aims and help to prioritise the brief. After a thorough search of the market, we delivered a strong shortlist of four qualified accountants who had previously worked for third party providers and leading consultancies. The interim executive chosen was an ex Big 4 consultant.
After an initial review, the appointed interim developed the new finance Target Operating Model and organisation design, involving 1300 FTEs. They led the RFP for Finance, ensuring all the bids were suitable and costs transparent, taking it from inception to vendor selection. The programme was delivered successfully and on time.
