Welcome to the
Association of Professional Interims
The API is the leading membership organisation in the UK dedicated to representing, promoting and supporting both new and experienced professional interim executives.
Professional Interim Executives are a high impact external resource, usually operating at or near board level on a short-term basis, who utilise extensive proven experience to solve complex problems or deliver solutions to business critical issues fast. Professional Interims diagnose, design, deliver, embed the learning and then disengage.
The API, as the "voice of interims", assures the marketplace of the highest quality of service and professional standards of its Interim practitioners through its stringent entry requirements and its professional code of conduct. The API is a trade association member of the CBI and its strategy with the CBI includes raising awareness with clients across private, public and not-for-profit sectors, of professional interims as a high-end, high-performing external strategic resource.
