The Fractional Executive Connection platform will be a way for small to medium-sized businesses to directly contact executive talent.

The POWER OF TOGETHER. Building stronger businesses with fractional leadership.”

CHARLOTTE, NC, USA, April 15, 2024 / — Fractional Executive Connection will be launching a new platform, in the next couple of weeks, connecting small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) directly with seasoned executives on a fractional basis.

Fractional Executive Connection specializes in connecting businesses with highly experienced executives on a fractional basis, offering a cost-effective and flexible solution for companies seeking experienced executive talent without the commitment of a full-time hire. Hiring opportunities include:

• Fractional
• Consulting and Advisory
• Retainer
• Contract
• Interim

SMBs often face challenges securing the strategic guidance and operational support necessary for growth due to budget constraints.

Founder Shirley Cress Dudley says, “Studies by Forbes Insights show that companies leveraging fractional executives experience an average 23% increase in profitability. Our platform bridges this gap by connecting businesses with seasoned executives on a fractional basis. This allows them to gain valuable strategic guidance, operational support, and specialized knowledge without the hefty overhead costs associated with a full-time hire. It’s a win-win for both businesses and executives seeking a more flexible career path.”

“We understand the challenges businesses face in securing the high-level expertise they need to thrive. Our platform provides a unique solution by connecting businesses with U.S.-educated, director-level (C-Level, EVP, VP, Director) executives who possess a minimum of 10 years of experience.”

“We also know how hard it is for a Fractional Executive to promote themselves. They have a great deal of expertise in their industry, but that doesn’t mean they know how to get the word out that they are available.”

Founder Shirley Cress Dudley, owner of SCD Consulting Services, entrepreneur, and also a best-selling author, has been providing marketing services for small to medium-sized businesses since 2010. While she enjoys working with her clients, and will continue to provide marketing services, she realized there was a way to help even more businesses succeed by creating the Fractional Executive Connection platform.

“While researching, I discovered many executives are transitioning to fractional careers, but don’t know how to promote themselves and get their expertise out to the companies in need of their services. I realized they need someone to promote them and get them in front of their ideal client. The idea to create Fractional Executive Connection was formed. I’m excited to make a positive difference in more people’s lives. I truly am happiest when helping others be more successful” says Ms. Cress Dudley.
