Why Fractional?

What is a ‘fractional’ Technology Board leader?

A leader who divides their time between several businesses, providing each business with top-level expertise for a fraction of the price. Fractional is also known as on-demand, part-time, plural, or portfolio

Why is a Freeman Clarke fractional technology leader better than an interim or consultant, or than hiring a permanent employee in-house? Because not every mid-market business needs a full-time CIO or CTO. Our model allows you the flexibility to scale up or scale down whenever you need to.

With our fractional leaders, you get a first-class technology expert, without the full-time cost. Unlike on-demand, our people join your senior team and provide genuine leadership from day one. 


Our unique model provides a cost-effective way to get the very best talent on your team.

Why Freeman Clarke?

This is all we do! We are not going to sell you software licenses, hardware, service centres, helpdesks, cloud servers or a CFO! We’re not pretending to give you a strategy when we’re actually trying to sell you something else

Best in the business. We attract, screen, test, interview and assess more experienced IT leaders than anyone else. Every one of our team is hand-picked on the basis of their skills and experience but also their ability to fit in to the culture of a mid-market businesses like yours.

Continuing professional development. Our team are fully engaged with a programme of knowledge sharing, briefings and training from companies across the sector. Our people gain exclusive knowledge and training in technology, business and leadership from industry experts.

Our black book. We have built up unique knowledge of technology suppliers and products and can call on companies and individuals we know and trust where necessary. We know who to trust, and who not to trust!

A cohesive team. We are the largest and most experienced team of C-level technology leaders. Our people share knowledge and opinions behind the scenes to ensure you get the benefit of the entire team. Each team is led by a Director who ensures they work together for your benefit.

No lock-in/low-risk. We don’t insist on an upfront payment or commitment to a six figure sum. We demonstrate value every day or else just tell us to stop immediately. It’s as simple as that. 

Price point. Our people are the best in the business, but as you take a fraction of their time the price point is affordable. We set our prices appropriate to the mid-market and we don’t cross-sell or up-sell.

Commercial and relevant. We are business people and we speak your language. Our IT strategies are always tuned to the needs of the business and the commercial reality.

 

Don’t think of us as outsourced.

We’re on your side. Our only interest is your success, we’re accountable for what we do, and we’re in it for the long-term.
