Celia Adams is an interim turnaround finance director with an extensive track record in mergers and acquisitions in the private and public sectors, including change management in blue-chip companies, AIM-listed organisations, SME’s and Non-Departmental Public Bodies. She first qualified as an accountant and has since worked across a number of industries as a finance director.

‘Interim working has given me lots of different experiences rather than the same calendar of events in a permanent role. It allows me to keep up my skill-set through constant exposure to new technologies and working with different management styles from one contract to the next.’

The nature of interim management means that professionals are propelled into an organisation at a higher level, with the sole aim of bringing about a solution to a specific problem in a short space of time.

‘Your skills and position as in interim mean that you can often facilitate a result by cutting across any barriers that may be there for people who work for the organisation full-time,’ Adams added.
