Supply Chain & Operations

What started off as “digital transformation” has morphed into something much larger — a drive to connect every aspect of an enterprise, from planning and procurement to manufacturing, sales, distribution, and even customer experience. This allows every sector to work together seamlessly, creating a continually improving organism.

Successful organizations are ones that approach this development in daring and innovative ways—and this invariably comes down to rethinking both their supply chain and operations processes.

Our Approach To Supply Chain & Operations Executive Search

Supply chain and operations executives are now securely positioned at the centre of business strategies. These leaders need to be able to seize opportunities and forge strategic alliances, both internally and externally. They must also act as a full business partner to the rest of the C-suite.

At Egon Zehnder, we’re proud to have helped build almost two-thirds of Gartner’s top 25 supply chain organizations from the ground up. Our team draws on this track record, along with the knowledge and experience of our own consultants. This allows us to help our clients rethink their role specifications and organizational structures, as well as set out a plan for transforming their functions.

With 68 offices across 40 countries, our global network lets us reach out across industries and geographies to search for and recruit the best supply chain and operations executives. Our consultants also keep a close eye on rising stars of the industry, who have the potential to grow as the function continues its rapid pace of change.
