Our industry experience and professional networks enable our clients to attract the best candidates even in difficult-to-penetrate niche markets. We help boards and executives to define the kinds of leaders they need based on their market entry and business strategy, the maturity level of their operations, and the competitive environment.

Industry / Manufacturing / Capital Goods

Any company that aims to carve out a presence in an overseas market must attract leaders who can operate amidst massive change. The executive leadership of a company’s international subsidiaries will need to look very different from it does today, owing to the convergence of megatrends such as digitalization, factory 4.0, the appearance of new global players, M&A activity, new manufacturing innovation, activist investors and political demands to re-shore production. We have the expertise to help you find the best talent available to meet these demands.

Energy - Conventional and Renewables

Whether you operate in the conventional or renewable energy space, TH Bender can help you successfully attract leading industry executives to your firm. We have a long track-record in the industry and recruited virtually for every position – from a land-agent in Odessa in the Texan Panhandle to the President of one of the largest power-plant developers in San Francisco or the Country Manager for the Brazilian operations of a Chinese manufacturer.

Ask us about the story of the company whose first US-candidate we recruited, followed by many team members and their Country Manager - and how they went within 10 years from $0 to $1 billion in US sales!

Consumer Goods / Retail / E-tail

The American consumer goods industry, across all steps of the value chain, from conceptual design to the retailer caters to the world’s most lucrative and rewarding market. But, with the great rewards comes intense competition.

Private Equity / Venture Capital / Start-ups / Portfolio
