Case Study: Interim Chief Executive Officer at a Victorian Disability Support Service 


Interim Director of Governance, Independent Boys' School


The Board Chair contacted Gig Executive to identify an Interim Chief Executive Officer after the incumbent had submitted their resignation.  They were seeking a seasoned executive who could provide stable leadership during a period of transition and had a solid understanding of the disability sector while they continued the search for the permanent candidate.


Gig Executive turned around 4 highly qualified Interim Executives with the background and experience required to undertake this role. The successful candidate was a senior executive leader skilled in strategic partnerships, fundraising and business development, communications, advocacy and people leadership.


The Interim Chief Executive Officer commenced in the role within one week of being interviewed, initially in a part-time capacity and then transitioning to full-time. Being available to immediately step into the role three days a week meant the Interim Chief Executive Officer and the executive team could commence working on several time-sensitive project deliverables. This showcases how our clients can leverage our interim executive talents in nontraditional working environments.

The Board highly praised the Interim Chief Executive Officer’s contributions and achievements in the first three months of the interim placement and offered her a further extension.
