Raleigh-based Armstrong McGuire and Charlotte-based LevRidge Resources will merge their teams and services to better support the nonprofit sector throughout the state and nation.
LevRidge Resources founder, Kathy Ridge will join the Armstrong McGuire team as Director of Interim Management Services in January 2023.
Ridge will lead Interim Management Services which pairs interim executive directors, finance directors, or development directors with organizations that are in transition. She will also lead the Interim Management Institute, a training and certification program for interim nonprofit executives. Certified executives are part of the Interim Management Services Network and are available to serve in interim roles to support nonprofits as they journey through an executive transition.
Co-founding Principal Bert Armstrong said, “Merging Armstrong McGuire and LevRidge Resources is the perfect complement. Through her Interim Management Institute and network, Kathy has built an amazing group of leaders who are well-equipped to step into organizations during time of transition to help them smoothly navigate the journey until a new executive leader is hired.”
As a leading national nonprofit consulting and executive search firm, Armstrong McGuire is regularly asked for help with interim leadership. Conversely, LevRidge Resources is renowned for its interim leadership work and is often asked about the best support for a search.
