MEMBERSHIP AND REFERRAL FEES
As interim executives, the best proof of our value to society is our ability to parachute in and rapidly be of service to a company and its owners. To that end the Association has launched a search engine so that owners – PE funds, VC funds, corporate boards, individual owners, management teams, non-profits and governmental entities – can quickly and easily locate highly talented and qualified interim executives. In addition, the Association occasionally gets contacted by companies in need of interim help and will make referrals to members. While a contact is not guaranteed, our members agree to pay a referral fee of 15% if a successful assignment results from a lead or contact request coming from the Association or a search on InterimExecs.org. The referral fee is calculated based on the consideration the member receives from the engagement over its full term, including cash and non cash consideration, stock and equity incentives, success fees and the like. If you have any questions about this, you should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847-849-2800.
One of the Association’s goals is to provide a platform where entities and individuals in need of the expertise of established executives can find such candidates and a discussion can take place between the two parties. A successful engagement would demonstrate the goal’s achievement. We attempt to establish the best forum, but the Association is not a recruiting or placement agency and does not endorse, certify or validate the credentials of any of its members or the parties seeking their services. To that end, all members [and visitors to the AIE website] acknowledge that AIE:
●provides a forum for interim executives to post their credentials and for persons and entities, including companies, corporate boards, management teams, venture capital and private equity funds, government entities and others (collectively, “Companies”) to search for interim executives with particular areas of expertise who might be able to provide a beneficial or necessary service or role;
●is not responsible for any of the content generated or posted by its members, including the accuracy or completeness of any information contained in an online or offline profile, biography, statistic, article, blog post, tweet, status update, resume or CV;
●does not screen, or assume any responsibility for any information provided by any of the Companies, and members are solely responsible for ensuring that the terms of any engagement with the Companies satisfies the member’s criteria;
●is not responsible for any decisions made by members and the Companies with respect to the engagements of any members contacted through AIE.
●does not endorse any member or Company or guarantee that an engagement will occur or be successful.
You agree to notify us of each engagement you accept and to remit the referral fee due to AIE within thirty days of receipt of client funds by you.
Neither the Association of Interim Executives nor any of its affiliated companies, employees, shareholders, or directors shall be liable for (1) any damages in excess of $100 or (2) any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to you or any third person arising from your use of AIE or any of the content or other materials on, accessed through or downloaded from AIE even if we are aware or have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
