A Proven Process

The Registry’s success in delivering the right interim leaders to the right institutions is built upon a proven, four-step process:

Getting to know you

We work closely with you to gain the knowledge and insight to find candidates who fit your goals. They will review materials and consult directly with your board chair, president and other key decision makers.

Managing the selection process

We help you make the right choice. A Registry principal will travel to campus with your chosen finalists to participate in a customized and collegial selection process.

Drawing on experienced candidates

We offer a pool deep with talent. Our members are already vetted by and contracted to The Registry and can be ready on short notice to assume interim positions.

Tracking results

We help you manage expectations. A Registry principal will develop an expectations document that identities your challenges and priorities and establishes accountability for your new interim administrator.

Testimonials

"[The Interim] worked very effectively with the incoming president, consulted with him on continuing changes after the new president had been announced and did all he could to enable his successor to assume leadership with confidence. For the third time, I would recommend him without question. If possible, we would designate him as Interim President Emeritus for his outstanding work."

Dr. Peter Garland, Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education

"I could not have been happier or more pleased than I was with [The Interim's] skillful and impactful service at Xavier University during last academic year. And I know I speak as well for many of my colleagues in senior administration and among the faculty and staff. As a seasoned professional with deep and broad experience in higher education, he moved into the particulars of our situation very quickly, came to know our issues well and, guided by the Expectations Document, contributed to Xavier University in multiple, meaningful ways.

Michael J. Graham, S.J.

President of Xavier University

"[The Interim] provided the leadership and management needed to oversee the Advancement division. He did this with a high level of collaboration, professionalism and data-informed decision making.  He was instrumental in overseeing the year-end fundraising goals...setting a sound stage for the permanent Vice President’s arrival.  He was a collaborative partner with the President’s Cabinet...I found [the Interim] to exceed expectations."

 

Suzanne Mellon, President

Carlow University

"Having worked with many an interim over my career, I have found [The Interim] able to achieve almost the perfect balance between respecting past practice and forging ahead to get things done. "

 

Dr. Terry Allison

Chancellor, Indiana University South Bend

“Several SUNY campuses have used the Registry to fill immediate leadership needs with success. I applaud the Registry for their careful selection of experienced leaders to its ranks and providing this valuable service to campuses that need it.”

Nancy L. Zimpher, Chancellor

State University of New York

Gold Standard Best Practices

The Registry achieves positive results because it is built upon a foundation of Gold Standard Best Practices for engaging external interim leaders:

  • We pre-identify and pre-qualify capable, suitable and effective executives who have a definite interest and commitment to serving as outside interim executives well before you need them.
  • We provide an established poolof leadership talent, eliminating the need to conduct expensive, time consuming and potentially disruptive open-market executive searches.
  • We establish a structure and a format prior to the offcial appointment of your external interim that defines the purpose, the direction and the desired outcomes for the engagement.
  • We establish an understanding or a written agreement that your outside interim cannot become a candidate for the permanent appointment.
  • We effectively empower your external interim executive to achieve the desired results defined by your institution.
Costs

The Registry offers the best pricing model - our fees are incurred on a monthly-only basis. They will be roughly equivalent to your institution’s established budget for salary and fringe benefits for the duration of our interim service.
