This leading international manufacturer of specialist high-tech capital equipment for a blue-chip client-base sought a new Managing Director to lead its UK subsidiary. As the UK is a key market within its global business the client required an experienced ‘General Manager’, with a track record of leading and growing a sales and project delivery-led engineering technology business.
Despite being a ‘marquee brand’ within its sector, the need for confidentiality and the location of the business, added real complexity to the assignment. Our ability to provide a rigorous, yet discreet recruitment process, led to the identification of a strong long-list of potential candidates.
By understanding the requirements of the CEO, and how the position would need to complement his background with the specific nature of the role, we were able to deliver a shortlist of real choice and achieve a successful outcome.
