Matrix Interim Management is a specialist boutique firm focused on the acquisition of the very best Interim Executive talent for our UK and International clients. Renowned for our specialism in delivering complex and challenging searches on a global basis, we operate primarily at the senior end of the market.
Founded by industry veterans, Patrique Habboo and Tim Blackstone, the firm is based in London and operates with a global remit, having delivered searches in Western and Central Eastern Europe, North and South America and Asia Pac.
Our ethos is based on an entirely collaborative approach, working with our clients as true business partners and advisors, built on long-term partnerships rather than a transactional model.
Our relationships are based on trust, integrity and efficiency, enabling us to deliver the right technical and culturally matched solutions in the shortest time.
Where our expertise lies
In time critical, high-level Interim searches, having confidence in the firm you choose to partner with is paramount. Our aim is to develop and maintain long-standing partnerships with key clients.
Matrix Interim Management has two key service offerings.
Delivery of high-level Interim Searches:
Our area of specialism is the more senior, complex and demanding searches, leveraging our unparalleled in-depth knowledge of the top-end Interim market. We work across all sectors and functional disciplines for clients in the UK and internationally, almost always with a large element of transformation and change. Please see Our Successes for further information.
Strategic Interim Partnerships:
Matrix Interim Management also collaborates with some of our clients on a more strategic level to create bespoke, tailor-made Interim Talent Banks. In close partnership with our clients, we build a pool of thoroughly assessed Interim talent to call upon for projects as and when required. Together we can create the ultimate flexible capability for your organisation. Please contact us directly on +44 (0) 203 283 4303 to discuss your potential needs.
