COO/CPO/CTO & Area functions

We support our clients both in recruiting COOs, CPOs and CTOs and in filling all relevant positions in these areas. These include, among others:

  • Plant management
  • Production management
  • Quality management
  • R&D management
  • Purchasing Manager

as well as employees for these areas.

When conducting the search process, we attach great importance to the fact that the consultant appointed fully understands the position in its professional dimension.

COO/CPO/CTO & Area functions for permanent positions

Within the framework of a succession filling process that can be carried out according to plan, there is usually sufficient time to compare possible internal candidates and potential external candidates who may also come from the competitor. This process must be highly professional and confidential. Our consultants who take on such tasks therefore have both the industry expertise and the functional/operational competence. Since first-class candidates are courted, one must not lose them in such a process through lack of professionalism.

COO/CPO/CTO & Area functions for interim tasks

It is increasingly the case that unscheduled, short-term appointments have to be made. Crises, transformation processes or transactions can make it necessary to fill a position quickly. The acquisition of a personality directly from a candidate is therefore rather not possible. In this case, a solution must be found that comes from a sustainable network. We maintain these networks systematically, involving the relevant players in such situations, such as financiers and important business partners. We can look back on a unique track record in the past more than 30 years and have the corresponding experience here.

COO/CPO/CTO Personalities for control and advisory boards

Operations competence, i.e. competence with regard to technology and production, as well as supply chain, has a high priority in both legally regulated and voluntarily established supervisory bodies. We are in regular contact with active COOs, CPOs and CTOs, but also with COOs and CTOs who are no longer active in operations. We not only know their professional competence and personal characteristics, but also often their personal planning, so that the recommendation for a supervisory or advisory board function can be well-founded.
