Australasian Interim Executive Association

The Australasian Interim Executive Association (AIEA) is a leading professional organisation for interim executives that are recognised for their practical, hands-on skills and a broad understanding of the total business environment.

The original AIEA founders were a group of senior executives who had significant experience in the provision of services as interim managers. One of the first actions was to clearly define what is meant by the term ‘Interim Manager’. The definition chosen is:

'A highly skilled, seasoned manager who is available for assignments of any duration, to either lend specialised expertise to a strategic project or to fill a mission-critical skills gap.'



What Does a Typical Interim Manager Look Like?


What a question! As the Chairman of AIEA, I know hundreds of Interim Executives but the question threw me. How would you answer if you were asked “Who was a typical student in your graduating class?” or “What is your typical family member like?”

It made me start thinking about the individual members of the group in question and realise how diverse a group it is.

Do Executives have a Future after Retrenchment?


Retrenchments are becoming increasingly common these days. The big ones make the six o’clock news –where large businesses, and even whole industries, shut the doors. But most retrenchments are small, quiet affairs.

For the retrenchee, it can be devastating and very personal.

Helping More Senior Managers Find Work


With the introduction and growth of the AIEA-Jobs board, there has been a surge of interest from executives whose primary motivation is to find paid assignments, interim or permanent.

To cater for these people, AIEA has introduced the Affiliate (AAIEA) Membership and made if a three-month plan at a lower price point that the Full Member (MAIEA) plan.
