Leading Steel Mill
The client is a highly-respected, leading manufacturer of specialty steel with thousands of employees. The company’s American sales were handled by a long-term agent located in the New York area. Sales were stagnant but sizeable and critical for the parent company. TH Bender was asked to perform a CEO search but also to play a significant role in the smooth release of the long-term agent. The process was completed, a new subsidiary established in the Midwest. We were then asked to help build out the administrative and sales team. A similar, high stakes search in another country in the Americas recently completed successfully as well. The American operations are now stable and have even withstood the recent turbulences in the US steel market.
