It is the largest global interim management services companies in the world.

Russam GMS is now part of WIL Group (the Worldwide Interim Leadership Group) – a new global alliance of leading professional services companies launched today to offer interim management and transitional management services to clients around the world.

WIL Group has been set up in response to increased global demand for high calibre interim and transition leaders needed for short term business critical assignments. It is the largest global interim management services companies in the world.

The Group is owned by 13 member companies, who are all established market leaders in their countries. It has a talent pool of more than 30,000 interim executives ready to lead global and transnational assignments.

The Group’s mission is to help owners, their representatives and management teams to overcome extraordinary business challenges and fulfil their ambitions and to build an alliance that attracts and develops the best interim leaders and experts.
Finding the right people to work transnationally can be difficult unless a firm is located in that area and possesses in-depth knowledge of the market, the national employment legislation, working culture and business operations.

WIL Group can source and integrate international Interim Leaders and functional experts including CEOs, CFOs, and supply chain experts to work anywhere in the world. With operations in over 30 countries it is uniquely placed to help clients with global issues and is the first company to offer interim solutions on a truly global scale.

Initially the WIL Group offers five global services:

• Performance Improvement
• Company Transformation
• Turnaround & Restructuring
• Private Equity & Investment Services
• Project & Programme Management

WIL Group has its international office in London at The Gridiron Building, One Pancras Square, London, N1C 4AG, as well as offices in 12 other countries covering most of Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific – including all BRIC nations – all areas where there is a growing demand for interim resources.

Patrick Laredo, CEO of X-PM France, and Secretary General for the WIL Group said: “The business world is increasingly globalised, with many companies undergoing major change and transformation. We address these complex business challenges, and source experienced interims to work globally and transnationally; making the process of recruiting Interim Leaders straightforward. Our executives are heavy weight professionals, who can be parachuted individually or in teams into any business situation, often at very short notice to lead projects and handle complex business challenges.

“We bring decades of business experience and leadership, and many members and partners have been working together over the past seven years on global assignments. The Group is committed to integrate assets to support clients on a worldwide basis and this includes the ability to multi-source Interim Leaders,” adds Mr Laredo.

Jason Atkinson, Managing Director of Russam GMS said, “WIL Group is an exciting new venture for Russam GMS. It is a unique ‘star alliance’ which brings together the world’s top interim management providers to offer interim and transitional management services globally. We are uniquely placed to help clients with all their global resourcing challenges and have the world’s largest talent pool of over 30,000 proven interim managers ready to structure and lead complex projects, deliver sustainable change and create lasting value.”
