Eton Bridge Partners wins 1st Place in IIM Survey 2019

We would like to thank our interim executives and clients for their ongoing support and for contributing to the 2019 IIM survey, and to the team at the Institute of Interim Management (IIM) for compiling the report.

It has been a collective team ambition to achieve first place in the survey and we are absolutely thrilled to have achieved it in its tenth year amongst a prestigious field of Interim Service Providers. I would like to personally thank all of my colleagues for their contribution to this successful milestone.

Congratulations to Steve Deverill who was voted the best consultant and to Nick Berman and Alison Rotundo who are in the list of leading consultants.

Our goal is to be the most trusted partner in Interim Management and Executive Search. We believe this starts with our own team, and as such we continuously work on building our culture and values of Trust, Spirit and Excellence. Everyone has a voice and everyone is listened to. In turn, this is reflected in our day to day behaviours. We are a team and each of us has a shared responsibility for delivering for our clients.

We aim to stand out from the crowd in the way that we look after our network, with a consultative approach and deep functional expertise. Every assignment is important to us, every assignment is unique and every person we meet has different needs. We care about what we do and how we do it and we will continue to work on improving all that we do.
