Mobility

With the growth of tablet computing, smart phones and smart devices, mobility is transforming what businesses demand from their technology and what technology companies are expected to achieve for their customers. Through our in depth understanding of this emerging space, our sector specialists are uniquely positioned to provide strategic leadership services and solutions to meet our clients’ specific mobility talent needs.

We see a world where the number of intelligent communications devices on the network will outnumber traditional computing devices, thereby changing the way we think and interact with each other and with devices on the network. This revolutionary shift into mobility is transforming the global business landscape. Enterprises in all industries must rapidly adopt a mobile strategy. Meanwhile, new high growth businesses, such as mobile payments and mobile app providers, are building new categories that didn't even exist a few years ago.

The result is a new generation of leaders rising to the top of the industry. As a consequence, our clients are asking us to help them attract and develop leaders with an instinctive understanding of this emerging world.

Hardware Systems and Semiconductor

Hardware, systems and semiconductor companies are increasingly driven by three closely-related business imperatives:

  • Speed to market.Despite their size, they must bring innovative and desirable products to market rapidly in order to outflank fast-moving competitors.
  • Flawless execution.From pursuing ambitious strategic plans, managing complex and often extensive supply chains, to coordinating multiple business units, they must be able to leverage execution for competitive advantage.
  • They must be able to adapt quickly to the new challenges and opportunities that are arising with rapidly evolving new technologies: cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, green power, data analytics and the convergence of servers, storage and networking.

To successfully meet these challenges, we know that our clients need leaders who understand the impact of market and technology disruptions on business models and how to leverage the opportunities they present.  Finding such leaders can be challenging.

We operate seamlessly as a global team, maintain relationships with top global talent and draw on deep industry and functional expertise. These resources enable us to identify outstanding performers, present them to clients efficiently and provide superior advice on talent management.
