Since our firm’s inception in 1953, Heidrick & Struggles has helped industrial companies identify and recruit the leaders they need to succeed. With talent more critical than ever, Industrial Executive Search Practice experts understand the unique leadership development challenges of this diverse business sector.

Companies across the industrial sector have historically concentrated on making their formidable physical assets the basis of competitive advantage. Today, however, leading industrial companies increasingly recognize that the quality of their leadership talent will make the real competitive difference in a world of globalization, rapidly emerging markets, off-shoring, outsourcing, and far-flung supply chains.

These companies want innovative global leaders who possess the strategic, operating, and financial skills required to win in this complex environment. They want commercially-focused managers who can develop distinctive value-added solutions. Above all, they want leaders who have the ability to make both an immediate impact and a long-term contribution.

Our Industrial Executive Search Practice team combines unparalleled search resources with a deeply consultative approach. Working closely with the client, we develop the ideal candidate profile against their unique competitive challenges, business objectives and leadership culture. We have deep vertical experience in every industry sector and specialty area and serve every region across the globe, including emerging markets such as China, Russia, India, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe.


From startups to multibillion dollar market leaders, industrial companies both public and private, turn to our team for our geographic reach, industry expertise and functional knowledge.
