Our dedicated Aerospace, Defence & Security teams have worked with many leading civil aviation manufacturers and defence contractors in securing leaders with the skills to deliver innovation and drive growth in new markets.

The commercial aviation sector has been in a period of significant upheaval during the last few years. Airlines are fighting to maintain profitability and must continue to focus on achieving further cost reductions and higher levels of operational excellence.

Rising competition in the industry requires companies to become more focused on managing quality and increasing innovation through greater technology transfer and strong leadership.

Digital technology opens opportunities for the development of new products and services, as well as for more efficient supply chains to produce and maintain traditional goods. Companies in the aviation, aerospace and defence sector are in need of outstanding digital leadership talent to embrace innovative technologies and capitalize on their full potential.

​Executives in the aviation, aerospace and defence industry need to have a solid understanding of government purchasing trends and a firm grasp of the political and military requirements that drive these trends. In addition, leaders must have relationship skills to deal with financial community and environmental issues.​​​
