Succession and passing on of your business:
the controlled handover

Your situation

  • You are thinking of retiring from your business.
  • You want to set up a succession.
  • You do not have an official successor.
  • Your designated successor is not yet up and running.
  • You want to hire outside management to take the reins of your business during the transition phase.

Our contribution

  • We work with you for a specific period to analyse the situation, prepare and implement the succession at the operational level.
  • When the situation requires it, we resort to restructuring measures that can enter into force before and after the succession.
  • If one or more successors have been appointed, we implement a transition plan involving all parties and ensure its implementation.
  • In the absence of a designated successor, we proceed to the search for the ideal person and support the person when they take up the role.

Your benefits

  • You benefit from an objective and politically neutral strength.
  • As an external consultant, Agnéus Interim Management has no emotional involvement. The action plan is established in the interest of the business and to ensure its continuity. This becomes important when different family members or close associates are involved.
  • Risks are minimised, since Agnéus Interim Management only steps back when the situation is stable, the new management in place and business continuity ensured.
  • You benefit from our intervention only for the time needed, pay only for the service perceived and do not have long-term fixed costs.

The risks of a succession without external support

Conducting a business succession without transferring operational responsibility to an external person can be dangerous, especially in the presence of several owners/parties involved, such as a group of heirs.

  • Waste of time and money if the succession is poorly managed.
  • Risk of operational drift, neglect of ongoing business, lost productivity and credibility.
  • Risk of personal conflicts and obstruction of good business management.
  • Loss of jobs.
  • Business failure.
