Manufacturing Director Executive Search & Headhunting Specialists

Let our team search, identify, and recruit top Manufacturing Director talent for your organisation.


Importance of The Manufacturing Director Role

The Manufacturing Director plays a critical role in today’s business climate. In an increasingly competitive and global marketplace companies recognise the need for leaders who can achieve operational excellence and drive growth across the industrial sector, meeting the challenges of rapidly emerging markets, technological innovation, outsourcing, offshoring, and far-flung supply chains.

The Manufacturing Director leverages their expertise and experience to help companies increase market share, create value, and stay ahead of the competition. These leaders also play a critical role at the senior management and board level by helping set the strategic direction of the company, driving innovation, and navigating the complex regulatory and market challenges faced.

At Novo, we understand the essential role manufacturing executives play at both the operational and senior management levels, and our executive search and headhunting practice work closely with our clients to identify and recruit innovative and dynamic leaders who possess the skills and experience needed to succeed in this complex landscape.

Our manufacturing experience covers a range of sectors from Agribusiness, Automotive, and Chemicals to Electrical, Mining and Metal, and Transportation and Logistics.

Manufacturing Director Skills Needed Include:

  • Industry-specific knowledge and an understanding of the global market.
  • Strategic thinking to develop long-term strategies for success.
  • Excellent communication to communicate effectively with team members, stakeholders, and suppliers.
  • Strong leadership ability to inspire teams and create a culture of innovation and excellence that drives continuous improvement.
  • Strong technical knowledge to effectively manage and lead manufacturing processes and operations.

We take a highly consultative approach to executive search, leveraging our extensive network and deep industry knowledge to help you identify, attract and retain top-tier manufacturing talent who possess the requisite skills, experience, and cultural fit to succeed in your organisation.
