“I found Jim and the ES Interims’ team to be the ultimate professionals and a
tremendous partner. I would recommend Jim to any organization that was looking for
leadership and for someone who could add a fresh perspective on a situation.”
“During repositioning and recapitalization of AutoRealty, Claude Smith, Interim CFO
from the ES Interims’ team, helped evaluate various financing alternatives available in
the market. Claude’s thorough understanding of the financial landscape and the needs
of AutoRealty helped us position the financial plans for the company. It was a genuine
pleasure to work with him and the whole ES Interims’ team.”
“The impact Jim and the ES Interims’ team made was profound! We had an
experienced sales staff, however, our processes and organizational structure
needed fundamental review. After a thorough examination of our business, Jim
helped implement a concise strategy for streamlining our operations and opening up
bottlenecks. Within months, our sales department was on the way forward.”
“CRG has vast internal networks for turnaround and restructuring professionals,
however, occasionally we need a specific industry experience our existing professionals
do not have. When we exhaust our internal resources we frequently turn to Jim Stewart
and his team. ES Interims provides a personal and efficient service, effectively sourcing
quality interims across all functions and levels for our business, often at very short
notice. In one specific situation, Jim found a Pig Farmer with a PhD in Meat Science in
less than a week to assist with an assessment of a large swine farming operation”.
“Tom and the ES Interims team are excellent recruiters with an uncanny ability to successfully execute the “one off” search for hard-to-find talent. It is not hard to find a CFO or VP of Sales.
ES Interims excels at the unique. When CapRock was looking to hire an Angola Country Manager, we engaged Tom and the team to assist us. In a matter of days, they pulled together an excellent slate of candidates that met our stringent preliminary requirements. As a result, we were able to hire an outstanding person who was at the center of our bull’s-eye”.
“Operation Kindness is the oldest and largest no‐kill animal shelter in North Texas.
Tammy Guiso served as Operation Kindness’ Interim Executive Director from February
through April 2008. Tammy came to us from ES Interims during a stressful time at the
shelter, following the sudden resignations of the former Executive Director and another
senior staff member. Mere words cannot describe how impressed my fellow board
members and I were with Tammy’s performance.
Her results exceeded my wildest expectations. We had hoped that Tammy would
hold things together until the Board of Directors could hire a new Executive Director.
Tammy did that and much, much more. Tammy left Operation Kindness a much better
organization than she found it. Her impact has been profound and will be lasting. I can
recommend her services enthusiastically and without reservation.”
