The Position

Interim Managing Director


Smilepod are a dental care clinic chain, founded in 2008. They have six established studios across central London, offering high quality accessible professional dental care. The business is backed by Beaubridge, a private equity growth investment firm.


The context

In light of the incumbent leaving, Smilepod commissioned Rinnova to deliver an interim search for an operational consultant to lead the business through a period of transition.


The solution

Within only 48 hours we presented Smilepod interim candidates, their track record included:

  • Operational experience within Dentistry
  • Leadership experience in both corporate and smaller, privately owned businesses
  • Marketing oversight
  • Finance oversight


The impact

The successful interim candidate provided  immediate stability to the business during a period of change. Efficiencies were also evident across marketing, operations, finance and clinical engagement.

“Smilepod Group has had a relationship with Rinnova for some time. We have been very impressed with Rinnova’s ongoing strategic engagement and their willingness to share experience and advice. This investment meant that when Smilepod did have a senior executive requirement, Rinnova were able to respond very quickly with a number of outstanding and highly relevant candidates, one of whom has been recruited and is proving excellent. Rinnova’s service has been exemplary and I hope to continue working with them in future.”
