'Gun for hire' aids nonprofits | Inquirer | 03/26/2007: "Board members were exhausted and in despair, laying off workers and sweating out each week's payroll, board chairwoman Kristy Buzard said. Funders began to lose confidence.

So Howley, 47, pulled on his hip boots and waded in.

'They thought they were dead, and they were close to being right,' he said.

Howley is an interim director - or, as he says, a 'gun for hire' - who comes in after an executive director has left, and cleans up the mess or stabilizes the organization while the board takes a deep breath and figures out what to do next."
