Mining and Metals

Heidrick & Struggles' Mining and Metals team has been building a strong reputation in the upstream and primary metals sector for more than 10 years. Our experts span the globe, covering Asia, the Americas, the Middle East, Europe and Africa. Our track record in search assignments and effective cross-border search teams – particularly for roles in difficult locations requiring a combination of strategic, operational, project and leader skills – is well recognized by the key players in this sector.

Leadership success depends both on the delivery of high quality, major capital projects as well as the ability to find a careful balance between operational cost-control and technological innovation.  These must all be achieved while maintaining a license to operate, working in partnership with global communities and addressing increasingly complex environmental challenges such as climate change.

Our experts understand that leaders must have a keen eye on global trends to identify and take advantage of opportunities that develop top line growth, leverage and diversify resources or reduce risk. They must also be able to deliver short-term results, yet have the confidence to retain a long-term view. Our dedicated Mining and Metals experts provide clients with the global reach and specialist local knowledge required to develop industry leading teams.
