February 3, 2015 – Odgers Interim has established a dedicated referencing team in response to growing demand for detailed background checks on senior appointments. Former solicitor, Sally Havers, who has previously held roles at law firm Herbert Smith Freehills and the Treasury Solicitor in the U.K., will lead the offering, which includes professional referencing, and criminal, financial and tribunal checks. “Interims applying for senior leadership and non-executive director positions are under increasing scrutiny. More than ever, interims need to understand fully what is required of them and have all the necessary information to meet clients’ exacting expectations,” said Ms. Havers. “The referencing team, will underpin the sector specific expertise of our consultants to ensure that all interims have undergone systematic and thorough-going due diligence checks.” Odgers Interim, which is complementary business to Odgers Berndtson, provides interim management executives to companies.
