The Industrial Sector is especially diverse as is evidenced by the following list of distinct business categories that our consultants serve:

  • Aerospace & Defense
  • Agribusiness
  • Automotive
  • Building Products
  • Chemicals, Plastics & Polymers
  • Engineering, Construction & Infrastructure
  • Industrial Electronics & Precision Engineering
  • Industrial Products
  • Industrial Services
  • Mining & Mineral Resources
  • Supply Chain/Logistics
  • Utilities


While diverse, many businesses across these categories are impacted by challenges that they face in common.  Such challenges include the globalization of business and competition, outsourcing, high-growth new markets, far flung supply chains, succession planning, new technologies and innovation, and the need for continuing to drive operational excellence in the midst of it all.

Navigating all of these issues successfully requires Boards and Leadership Teams that not only possess deep knowledge of their businesses but that are also adaptive, transformational, digitally literate and globally aware.  It will require leaders who are at once strategic and operational in their perspective, who are market savvy and commercially adept, and who are mindful of the impact of their decisions in both the short and long term.

Aided by our carefully built and maintained network of Industrial sector sources, references and clients – and the depth of our consultants’ knowledge in the categories listed above – Diversified Search provides outstanding search leadership throughout the sector.  Add to that our firm’s unparalleled track record in developing highly inclusive slates of candidates – not only in terms of ethnic and gender diversity, but with regard to diversity of thought and perspective as well – and we are the best executive search partner available in this sector.
