PiR Interims promotes director

PiR Interims, providers of interim managers to the life science sector, has promoted Sally Hope to Director of Interim Services.

MD, Carolyn Douthwaite said: “Sally’s promotion is one of the greatest highlights of 2009 for the company and for our clients and candidates. Her passion, knowledge, commitment, tenacity and professionalism have been instrumental in the growth of the

Interims Practice since our early days in 2005/06. Sally’s greater involvement in the leadership and direction of the business will strengthen and enhance our reputation and branding amongst the life science industry.”

Sally commented: “Typically when industry has experienced a downturn, a period of restructuring and tightening of belts on permanent headcount, the requirement for interims, contractors and temps tends to rise. What any employer in the life science market can be assured of is that there are some exceptionally talented interim managers out there looking to deliver on specific projects, add value to an organisation and leave it in a stronger state than they found it.”
