Healthcare Leaders on Demand - A Bigger and Better Interim Practice

Tyler & Company’s interim division is rapidly expanding. The healthcare executive search firm’s new direction will strengthen its presence as one of the top c-suite recruiting firms in the US. Tyler & Company is devoted to continuing their partnership with organizations who seek interim executives. On January 4, 2019 Preston Smith, Tyler & Company’s President, announced Jennifer Becker as the new national practice leader for their interim division.

Tyler & Company’s interim search involves a short-term operational focus. They provide an immediate vacancy response coupled with a seamless transition. Their team matches clients with an experienced interim executive who can ensure operational consistency. The interim search is essential for organizations that face an executive team formation or transition, executive leadership integration, healthcare compliance mandates, succession planning and board/CEO executive support.

What differentiates Tyler & Company’s interim management approach from other healthcare search firms is the ability to deviate from the place-holder strategy. Their goal for the placed interim candidate is to provide the client with the assistance they need, move into a permanent role or assist them in hiring the new permanent placement with the highest probability of success. Their interim leaders deliver immediate leadership stability, maintain momentum with critical initiatives, provide outside leadership for a turnaround, debt restructuring and other projects, allows ‘breathing room’ until a permanent placement is identified, then coaches and assists the permanent executive with the transition into the new role.

Becker will focus her time and attention to growing the interim service line. She will be the point person for the interim practice and spearhead the effort to grow nationwide.

“I am thrilled to be leading the expansion of our national interim executive practice for Tyler & Company. After more than 40 years in business, the ability to provide clients with an interim solution creates significant growth opportunity for the firm and our clients," said Becker.

Becker joined the team in 2017 from Jackson Executives, an interim healthcare executive search firm. She joined the Tyler team in conjunction with a recent merger between Jackson Executives and Tyler & Company. Over the last year, she led the Southeast region as the vice president. Becker has over 20 years of experience in building out markets for consulting and staffing firms to her role.

Tyler & Company's interim practice grows stronger every day and they are eager to see how Becker will lead the Tyler team to reach candidates who will impact organizations through their interim position.
