Look to SMB to solve your transitional operating challenge. Recent case studies include:

CEO Achieves Results for Private Equity Investors

Despite more than 50 industry accolades, a burgeoning Internet company struggled as it continued to burn through funding. SMB analyzed the situation and brought in a CEO who had turned around nearly a dozen companies. Results happened quickly. From refocusing the product from a one-size-fits-all commodity to a custom model and establishing a new sales strategy, our SMB CEO was able to re-energize the Board, negotiate new critical partnerships and raise more than $9.5 million in new funding.

CEO Melds Acquisitions Into New Stand Alone Company

A Fortune 50 company started a new auto parts venture via a number of acquisitions, but lacked the in-house management expertise to lead and unify the new business. SMB delivered a seasoned manager from a related field that understood the markets in which this business operates to act as the interim CEO. Mentoring high-potential members of the immediate staff to prepare them for more responsible roles in the near future was a major part of SMB's responsibility.
