The automotive industry needs leaders with the skills to drive innovation
The global automotive industry is more competitive than ever, as resurgent western manufacturers are challenged by the strong growth of Asian producers.
Rising commodity prices, bloated legacy programs, astronomical development costs, and increasing competition all threaten the profitability of manufactures. Particularly, the path towards the development of connected and autonomous cars, cleaner fuels, and high-performance materials is a critical and expensive one.
To thrive in such a competitive market place, firms require agile leaders with the talent to solve these challenges, and define the future of automotive engineering.
Southeast Asia is a vital region to the global automotive industry. Singapore is the regional headquarters for operations for many major OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers; Thailand is increasingly becoming a major hub for automotive production; and urbanisation and a growing middle-class are providing excellent opportunities for increased sales across the region.
Automotive companies are partnering with Odgers Berndtson Singapore to find the most experienced executives in Southeast Asia who possess the skill and leadership capabilities maximise this potential.
