Opening a foreign subsidiary

Is your company expanding internationally, setting up operations abroad or having to reposition the brand in a country that’s strategically key for your growth? Have you considered bringing in the expert support of an interim manager?

Your issue

Are you rolling out a production tool, launching a customer service platform or conducting market research abroad? Your top priority will be to quickly and seamlessly integrate the local culture and constraints (administrative, legal, geopolitical, etc.). You’ll need to expand your resources and expertise to handle all the ins and outs of a foreign subsidiary. Having someone on your side who understands the country is the key to ensuring success.

Our solution

You may be thinking about expatriation… We recommend interim management! This can give you immediate access to a top-level operational expert who knows exactly how to ensure a smooth project launch in your target country. It’s a more flexible and efficient solution than expatriation, and offers fast, tangible results. Our interim professional knows your market and is ready and able to go there within a few days. S/he will create the structure, recruit the necessary talent on-site and tap into his/her personal network of contacts if needed. S/he will work closely but objectively with your headquarters to determine the best strategy to implement locally. This results-oriented executive will quickly develop your business, signing the first contracts and partnership agreements.

Your challenges are our everyday business! Thanks to our vast international experience, we have developed a clear understanding of the market(s) you’re interested in. Our Partners have a firm grasp of the intricacies involved in succeeding abroad and can quickly offer you the most appropriate operational management solution.

An assignment with Valtus

Your Valtus Partner will identify your challenges and the means for most effectively reaching your objectives. Then s/he will prepare a specific roadmap, including the right interim manager or the most appropriate options if there is more than one.

The interim manager that you choose to work with will start by creating a diagnostic report of your specific situation and recommended step-by-step action plan which s/he will then implement. You and your interim manager will have regular updates led by your Valtus Partner throughout the assignment to make sure everything remains on track at all times.

Your interim manager, along with your Valtus Partner, will present a final report, which will include his/her recommended next steps. S/he will prepare the files to be handed over to the person who will be taking over his/her role. We will ask you to provide us with a debrief and feedback along with our client satisfaction survey.
