About The Summit Companies
Summit Outsourced Executive Program
Experienced leadership and guidance is one of the most important needs for any size or type of organization. Large organizations help meet that need by making large investments in high level staff, but most organizations find that it is either not feasible or cost-effective to hire in-house staff that can provide all of the expertise that the organization needs. Outsourced Executive programs, also known as Executive-as-a-Service or Fractional Executive programs can be the answer. These programs allow an organization to have access to the needed strategic expertise and experience at a fraction of the cost of a full-time staff member.
The Outsourced Executive Program and Summit Consulting Services can provide small and mid-sized businesses and nonprofit organizations with exactly the strategic knowledge and resources that they need. Summit consultants offer both technical knowledge and extensive business experience. Summit’s diverse team contains professionals from a variety of industries backgrounds, meaning that regardless of the type of organization or business, Summit likely has team members that can understand the specific challenges and opportunities of that client. In addition to their individual experience, Summit consultants also have access to the full Summit team and collection of resources. This allows each Summit Outsourced Executive to be able to deliver unique value and capabilities to their clients.
While outsourcing C-level positions isn’t the right for every organization, the strategy can reap many benefits that businesses should consider as they seek to build their leadership team. Those advantages include:
• Eliminate the time and expense of the hiring process
• More flexibility – clients are not locked into long-term contracts or obligations
• Reduced overhead expense
• An independent and objective voice in strategic decisions
• The ability to select a consultant that fits the organization’s needs
Summit Outsourced Executives can fill multiple roles for client and those roles often defy rigid classifications, but each can also fulfill the expectations that would be placed on an individual in a traditional position, such as:
• Chief Operating Officer
• Chief Financial Officer
• Chief Human Resources Officer
• Chief Information Officer
• Chief Marketing Officer
