Why Fractional?

What is a “fractional” C-Suite tech 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 tech 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. With a fractional leader, you get a first-class tech expert, without the full-time cost. 

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

Why Freeman Clarke?

This is all we do! We are not going to sell you software licenses, hardware, service centers, helpdesks, cloud servers or a CFO! We don’t take money from vendors or suppliers, so you know that our recommendations are 100% objective.

We’re the best in the business. We screen more tech leaders than anyone else. And every member of our team is hand-picked on the basis of their skills and experience—and their ability to fit into the culture of a mid-market business like yours.

We emphasize professional development. Our team is fully engaged with knowledge-sharing, briefings and training from companies across the mid-market. Our people gain exclusive knowledge and training in tech, business, and leadership from industry experts.

We have deep contacts. We have built up unique knowledge of trustworthy tech suppliers and products. We know who to call and who is best avoided!

We believe in teamwork. We are the largest and most experienced team of C-suite tech leaders. And our people share their knowledge and opinions with each other to ensure that you get the benefit of the entire team. Each team is led by a Director who ensures they work together for the good of your company.

We’re low-risk, with no lock-in. We don’t insist on an upfront payment or commitment to a six-figure sum. We demonstrate value every day, or the client has the right to tell us to stop. It’s as simple as that. 

We’re affordable. Our people are the best in the business. But since they work fractionally, the price point is affordable. We set our prices appropriate to the mid-market, and we don’t cross-sell or up-sell.

Our expertise is in business and tech. We are businesspeople, and we speak your language: our tech strategies are always attuned to the needs of the business and economic realities.

Don’t think of us as outsourcing.

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.
