Global Industrial & Engineering
The client was a global industrial & engineering leader who had began a process of plant consolidation. This had lead to significant leadership disruption that was impacting performance & service to clients. As a result the client decided to appoint new Operations Leaders for its US & Europe business
The client needed to appoint Operations Leaders who had significant turnaround, were comfortable with scale & given the complexity & specialist nature of the industry experience. This was further complicated by challenging locations
Our Approach & Strategy
The search required us to focus on a small number of companies with comparable technologies, principally competitors. We conducted the search in total confidence & travelled extensively to meet target candidates who were under an NDA
We delivered a small & highly focused shortlist for each role, both positions were appointed from direct competitors
Global Drinks Giant
Our client was a global drinks giant with a roster of iconic brands. Pivotal to the growth of the business was its ability to anticipate & respond to changing consumer preferences, to enter new markets & build scale in new segments.
Public Listed Retailer
Our client was one of the UK’s largest public listed retailers. The company had undergone a period of sustained poor performance & was seen to be lacking both in product & customer innovation & a robust turnaround plan.
