Our Expertise

Turnaround and Transformation

Experienced senior leaders, practised at steadying the ship and building positive momentum in challenging circumstances. Typically Executive Chairman, CEO, CFO and COO positions. We introduce validated professionals that specialise in this type of environment and therefore hit the ground at speed.

Growth and Commercial

Board level executives, programme directors and functional specialists who deliver short and long-term growth through change and transformation. Our assignments here are often in high growth businesses that need stability or portfolio companies with Intentional ambitions or issues where growth has stagnated.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Support for early stage structural changes and specialist assistance in the Financial, Operational and Communication areas ahead of exit. Many of our Interims who assist with the due diligence stay with the business over the first year post-transaction, and some join the Exec team through its entire lifecycle.

How We Can Help

Our conversations with Private Equity houses often start with a problem within a portfolio company that either an interim or consultancy solution can resolve. Usually, the transformation required precedes a permanent hire, something our search and interim businesses can work hand in hand on. Typical scenarios include:

  • A need to drive change and transformation

  • Urgent replacement for a displaced member of the management team

  • Programme management leaders

  • Addressing short-term competency gaps

  • Early stage assistance for structural changes and due diligence

  • Specialist assistance ahead of exit

We can demonstrate many case studies where we have deployed Executive talent within short timelines who have delivered results fast.

Why Choose Savannah?

Our deep understanding of different segments in the industry allows us to challenge our client’s thinking and introduce new talent from different sectors in a creative and compelling way. Deep personal relationships with industry leaders, less off limits, and a blended search and interim practice gives us access to people that simply aren’t on the radar or accessible to other firms.

Executive Search

With decades of collective experience in identifying and securing high performing executives, Savannah offers a rigorous global search process based on deep functional and industry knowledge. Major global search firms run thousands of searches a year, and as a result aren’t always able to approach who they want due to extensive client off-limit restrictions. Savannah combines the quality, agility and dedication of a boutique firm with the specialism and global capability of a larger search firm.

Private Equity Practice
