Industrial

The industrial sector forms the backbone of today’s society—and lays the groundwork for tomorrow. From integrating new technologies into business models, to a greater focus on ESG/sustainability, to increased local connectivity through globalized supply chains, the industrial sector continues to evolve—and so do its talent needs.
 

While the industrial world will always have its roots in traditional veins, such as machinery and construction, today it is so much more—and those segments are all advancing. From smart mobility to CleanTech, new technologies and evolving stakeholder priorities have shifted how industrial companies do business and the talent they need.

Antonio Ianora, Global Industrial Practice Group Leader


We help companies, ranging from the Fortune 250 to midsized PE-backed enterprises and family-owned companies, identify, attract, assess, benchmark, and develop their executive talent, as well as discover and onboard new voices into the organization. In addition, we help organizations develop both short- and long-term strategies as they start or accelerate their digital transformation or diversity, equity, and inclusion journeys.

As former industrial segment executives and experts, we bring knowledge of talent and of the actual industry pressures and challenges, having lived some of them ourselves. We tap into our global network of consultants to harness all of our Firm’s resources to uncover creative people solutions and help you meet the disruptive challenges of your industrial sector.
