CLIENT

400 Person Tool Manufacturer

Pennsylvania

SEARCH ASSIGNMENT

+ Senior Vice President of Manufacturing Engineering

REFERRED BY
We were introduced to the client by Cornerstone Advisors, a succession and human capital development firm that has trusted us for over seven years.

 

CHALLENGES
The client was founded in 1886. When the fifth generation Grandson was ready to assume leadership of the company, he needed someone to take over his role as Vice President of Manufacturing Engineering.

 

The client needed someone that could fit into their safety-oriented family culture and bring best practices from a world class manufacturing organization. As a household name with a product that is practically synonymous with pliers, the client needed to hire a new engineering leader that would carry on their tradition of continuous improvement and quality while introducing new products.

 

SEARCH PLAN + RESULTS
We utilized our proven executive search process of listening to the client, helping them define the opening, identifying and developing a candidate pool and shortlist, assisting in the interview process, vetting, testing and referencing the finalists, and assisting with offer negotiations and on-boarding. We were able to provide a shortlist and ultimately found a local candidate in less than six months from the initial client meeting.
