This is part of an ongoing series of case studies demonstrating ARG’s laser-focused approach to tackling client needs. 

The Challenge

A $100 million+ construction company urgently required an interim controller to oversee financial operations. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the previous controller had to step down, leaving a critical gap in the company’s financial management team. The company needed immediate assistance to ensure continuity in financial reporting, budget management, and overall financial stability.

The Solution

ARG swiftly mobilized to address the client’s needs. Within 24 hours of receiving the request, we provided multiple qualified individuals with the requisite skills and experience in general construction and subcontractor operations. This expedited process allowed the client to evaluate their options and select the most suitable consultant.

The Outcome

After three weeks of placement, the consultant received a perfect 10 out of 10 rating from the client for both performance and cultural fit.

Impressed by the efficiency and effectiveness of our services, the client praised the quality of the individuals sourced and appreciated the flexibility in choosing a professional who not only possessed the required skills but also demonstrated a great cultural fit within their organization.

Overall, ARG’s timely response and commitment to exceeding client expectations not only addressed the immediate need for an interim controller but also strengthened our relationship with the firm — positioning us as a trusted partner for future interim needs.
