WBMS Ranks 6th in IIM 2017 Survey


WBMS has been ranked NUMBER 6 by the Institute of Interim Management (IIM) in the results of its annual survey published on Thursday. The IIM survey is now widely recognised as the premium bench-marking of excellence in our sector, with 2500 interim managers and executives voting this year.

Since inception in 2011, WBMS has risen from 68th, 41st, 37th, 19th, 10th, 6th place in the list, and is now recognised as the fastest rising provider out of 100 firms involved in the providers survey. Amazing, given that it is only 22 months since we launched our new brand. It has been a real team effort.

Thank you to you, the network, for voting for us; to our clients for backing us; and to the WBMS team for believing in our vision, for working so hard and for being resilient. The fact that Sophie, Sanjay, and Chloe were each voted for as leading consultants, is both a testimony to their hard work, endeavour and quality; but also a benchmark to the rest of the team to “pull their socks up” :o).

There is much still to do. Our ambition remains to be the Interim brand associated with both the “best people and best projects”, and we remain committed to raising the standards and service levels within our industry.

Thank you to the IIM for organising the survey, and for every single person who voted for WBMS. Please do come back to us directly with any additional feedback. In the meantime, we hope to be in touch soon to discuss your next Interim opportunity. The full survey results are available here. The full survey results are available here.
