Industry | Manufacturing

Any company that aims to carve out a presence in an international market must attract leaders who can operate amidst massive change. The executive leadership of a company’s overseas 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.

Executive recruiting in Industry and Manufacturing are not an isolated Human Resources issue. The recruitment of any executive responsible for a P&L and his/her team is the key factor determining success or failure in foreign markets.
