“Set the direction for growth of this well run business”

Engineering, Cambridgeshire

Attractive package to engage talent

With an enviable reputation for high quality UK precision engineering fabrication and installation services, our client has ambitious but achievable aspirations to increase their market share. Crucial to this will be our search to find their next Chief Executive Officer / Managing Director.

Part of an international Group but with autonomous UK control, their specialist engineering expertise services a loyal and wide customer base spanning the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, aerospace, chemical and allied industries. This, alongside a favourable market, means conditions for the next stage of their development look rather good.

They have a strong but straightforward culture; treat people well. Individuals feel part of something bigger than themselves; teams are valued, empowered to think differently and long term, to prioritise excellence, make decisions, and to take action. The business has achieved record profit lately whilst also growing revenue which they are proud of, as they are of their customer relationships, but there is more work to be done. They are smaller in the UK than they like, with a plan to grow through developing their specialist product portfolio and service offer, acquisitions, and potentially international expansion.

This will be led by a talented CEO/MD who will design their winning commercial growth strategy, set visionary direction, and lead from the front Sales (and Marketing) whilst overseeing the other supporting functions which report in (including manufacturing). In this role, you will focus and support the team on an agenda that understands which key opportunities will deliver. This is an opportunity to expand a well run small business to develop new revenue streams, where and how the team engages with new customers, workout complimentary acquisitions, and strengthen the business through innovation and best practice systems that support first class trusted relationships. 

The scope of this brief means general management experience that includes commercial B2B sales (& marketing ideally) expertise in engineering / manufacturing is prerequisite, as is evidence of leading commercial strategy and its execution. You may well have started your career in a blue-chip corporate, but have since moved to smaller companies where there is less bureaucracy and more excitement about making a difference. But most important will be your track record of delivery by engaging people with your vision, built on clear insights that deliver traction with customers and the business alike.  The leadership opportunity to inspire this forward-thinking organisation, and grow with their business, makes this an exciting position worth exploring further.
