Objective
Find an Operations Director who can rapidly drive radical change and implement lean manufacturing to this traditional business.  The candidate must have a proven track record implementing change and lean practices, as well as a strong familiarity with the quality demands of customers in these sectors.

Method
Used a Search method to identify competitors with similar size businesses across the required sectors.  Identified individuals working in similar roles within these companies and approached them directly with positive aspects of the role to gauge interest.  Supplemented this approach with a Network Search through our existing network of candidates and contacts.

Result
Interviewed several prospects before identifying two candidates who were suitable for and interested in the role.  These proceeded to the client for interviews before one was offered and accepted the role.
