Building Components

The building industry is inherently complex, incorporating the business cycles of both residential and commercial construction. The upstream segment of the industry, which operates on a truly global level, has been reconfigured by successive waves of M&A, creating a small group of multinationals consolidating local enterprises. Further downstream, most players are competing at a national or even regional level, constrained by building codes, climate, and local natural resources. Industry dynamics are increasingly about driving efficiencies and bringing innovations to the market.

At Egon Zehnder, the leaders of our Building Practice are former industry executives who understand its complexities. We can help you assess your organizational structure and talent management strategy, weighing it against current demands for more efficiency and greater market reach. We work closely with our colleagues across the broader manufacturing space to identify transformative leaders and market disruptors. Through our seamless internal network, we access a broad range of leaders and can give you a clear view of what best-in-class leadership looks like. Our 63 offices around the world mean that we are as global — and as local — as you are.
