Globalisation, mergers and acquisitions, vertical integrations and partnerships all demand more of the people at the top.
As the manufacturing industry experiences continued growth, companies need internationally experienced leaders to take advantage of the changing global industrial climate.
Industrial companies of all sizes and in all sectors are completely different from just a decade ago. Less formal business-models and flatter, more nimble organisational structures mean that finding the right talent to lead and inspire, has never been more important.
From global automotive manufacturers, through heavy industry and construction, to electronics, manufacturing and industrial services, Odgers Berndtson has an exceptional track record in sourcing leaders for some of the world's top manufacturing companies.
Whilst many industries, such as food or aerospace, remain engrained within the French economy, the engineering sector has taken an international turn.
All eyes are turned towards developing countries as they implement major new projects and invest in their industrial sectors. France’s engineering jewels must now conquer these developing markets whilst maintaining their lead in Africa.
Odgers Berndtson provides engineering companies with its unmatched knowledge of the French talent pool, and the resources needed to power the international development of French and European firms.
