CRO | Chief Restructuring Officer

Characteristics of our Interim Supply Chain Director

A Chief Restructuring Officer (CRO) is a senior executive responsible for leading and overseeing the restructuring process of a company. When a company is facing financial distress or undergoing a significant change, a CRO is brought in to navigate the complexities of restructuring and help the organization get back on track.

  • Project Management: Restructuring processes involve multiple moving parts. Interim CROs must be skilled in project management to ensure that tasks are completed on time, resources are allocated efficiently, and the restructuring plan stays on track.

  • Strategic Thinking: Interim CROs are strategic thinkers who can develop and implement effective restructuring plans. They need to identify key issues, set priorities, and make decisions that align with the overall goals of the restructuring process.
