Back in January 2005 I reported that Trevor Axworthy had joined Mark Olson at the Osborne Group.
Axworthy is still a principal with the firm specializing in all facets of human resources, but it has been rebranded as Osborne Interim Management, its head office has been moved to Calgary and Olson is now the major shareholder, president and CEO of the firm.
Olson hails from Winnipeg, where he began his career in radio as an anchor and sports commentator relocating to Calgary to become vice-president of sales for Rawlco Radio, responsible for - at that time - 66 CFR and KISS-FM. But when the company sold its Calgary interests, Olson decided to remain here, joined Osborne Group and later became its managing principal.
In 2010, the Calgary office bought out the majority shareholder in Toronto and the company and its principals in other offices in Edmonton, Saskatoon, Toronto and Vancouver are now managed out of this city.
Osborne Interim Management provides high level executives to companies on a short-term basis when they are experiencing challenges during periods of transition, rapid growth or economic uncertainty.
