ASG engaged in an assignment to assist with the succession plan of a long-time, C-Level executive located within the client’s North American facility in Detroit.
We conducted a search for his replacement on behalf of this global manufacturer of capital equipment which is headquartered in Europe (in conjunction with the outgoing executive and the management team based on two continents) for a Global Chief Sales & Marketing Officer. An extensive process surfaced several qualified candidates, ultimately narrowing the field to two finalists. Both candidates were highly qualified, with the preference split among the departing executive and the management team based in the USA and Europe.
A deeper dive into motives for change, extensive references and a keen understanding of company culture resulted in an offer and acceptance from the finalist. Two years later, the company is thriving and their CSMO is well-established and successful.
