INDUSTRIAL PRACTICE

While the industrial sector has experienced widespread growth in recent years, the space is ripe for disruption. To set themselves up for success, organizations need leaders who spearhead change and embrace technology to navigate whatever challenges lay ahead.

About the Practice

For more than 50 years, Raines International has been finding the highest caliber talent in the Industrial workforce. In recent years, technological advancements, increased M&A activity, and geopolitical uncertainty have changed the playbook for Industrial companies. While this has created opportunities to evolve, it has also created a tight labor market as many look for future-thinking leaders in the sector. Our Industrial practice team leverages unparalleled search resources, extensive relationships with industry leaders, and a deep understanding of the field to provide clients with talent who is prepared to take on these transformational changes. Our executive search consultants specialize in matching clients with candidates who can not only do the job at hand, but who also will serve as inspiring Difference Makers™ in the company.
