NAPL Offers Interim Management Services

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Paramus, N.J., October 14, 2008 - In an effort to help printing and graphic communications firms fill vacant or newly created positions for C- and E-suite-level executives on an interim or part-time basis, NAPL's (www.napl.org) Print Consulting Services Group offers Interim Management Services.
NAPL's Interim Management Services provide senior management talent to clients on a long-term, permanent part-time or interim basis to help them meet a variety of business needs.  For example, the search for the right candidate can often take up to six months or more for executive-level positions.  NAPL's Interim Management Services allows a company to continue to conduct business as usual and thrive while it conducts its search.  In another scenario, a client may have only a temporary need for a senior manager to work as part of its own team.  Through Interim Management Services, a client can bring in an experienced executive to run an area of the company on a temporary basis until specific goals are realized without having to make a long-term commitment to a full-time employee.
According to NAPL Executive Vice President Tim Fischer, who also heads up NAPL's Print Consulting Services Group, "Whether a client is experiencing real growth and now needs a new executive-level professional to run an area of the company, or a senior executive has left a firm, thereby creating an opening, NAPL's Interim Management Services helps meet immediate needs with on-demand, executive-level expertise."
For instance, for one Northeast-area printing company in transition, with $18 million in annual sales, NAPL has provided both an interim VP of operations and a controller to meet certain short-term objectives while a search for a permanent solution is found.  In another recent example, an NAPL consultant is the acting senior sales executive, a newly formed position for the client company, on a long-term, part-time basis, since the $16 million company now has an even more concerted focus on increasing its sales performance.
"NAPL's interim executives bring extensive real-world experience to financial, operational or sales positions at client companies.  We have a deep bench of expertise to draw from, a key differentiator from professional services firms that might offer interim staffing," Fischer noted.
In addition, NAPL's Interim Management Services professionals have access to NAPL's suite of tools to help address client business needs, including benchmarking and analytical tools, technical expertise and access to peer companies, which brings an added dimension of industry perspective to an assignment.
"Our Consulting Services Group provides objective advice to clients on what works and what doesn't work.  We help them develop an action plan for implementation.  Our Interim Management Services takes our consulting to the next level by implementing the action plan and being accountable for achieving results," Fischer said.
