Interim Executive Leadership

Marygrove Consulting offers a unique service we call “The Virtual Vice President”. We believe there is a need for cost-effective, short-term interim leadership for colleges and universities that are involved in the executive search process or are taking time to reflect on leadership needs. We believe that most of the work of an interim leader can be done in a virtual environment. We have found that the primary work of a short- leader includes these key elements:

  • Coaching the president on enrollment and advancement
  • Analyzing current operations and providing recommendations for change
  • Overseeing and mentoring key personnel
  • Maintaining existing operations
  • Providing a success transition for the new leader

Marygrove Consulting currently offers “Virtual Vice President” services in the areas of Enrollment Management and Advancement. Our seasoned leaders provide your institution with the knowledge and skills necessary to move these vital functions forward in an affordable format when compared to traditional interim placement firms. We have the experience to help you prepare for your next full-time leaders.
