The article examines the renewed demand for interim executives as a result of the large number of business failures and corporate turnarounds. Many companies are using interim executives to help guide the firm through hard times, according to Paul Dinte, president of Dinte Resources Inc., an executive search firm in Virginia. The concept of an interim executive can be applied in every functional area, as well as in general management. Because these executives are managed by the company and not a consulting firm, they are directly accountable for effecting change.
