Transcript from the BlueSteps #ExecCareer Chat, “Executive Search and Your Chief Operations Officer” featuring John Ryan from TRANSEARCH USA.

For one multinational client, TRANSEARCH was appointed to conduct its 27th search for this company during the past six years. The mandate was to replace the Head of Human Resources for North America. This company is a diversified manufacturer of heavy equipment, active in 150 countries with more than 50,000 employees worldwide. It is positioned as one of three leading global suppliers of turbomachinery in the energy, marine, and transportation sectors. As revenue in North America approached $500 million, the organization required a proven executive who could bridge tactical leadership of a best-in-class program, with the strategic mindset of human resources as a driver of business growth.

TRANSEARCH International would like to congratulate Golder Associates on its appointment of Dr. Hisham Mahmoud as President and Chief Executive Officer. This marks the first time the organization has hired a CEO from outside the company. As leaders in an industry still undergoing immense change, adding Dr. Mahmoud is a huge accomplishment for Golder and the team. Together they have a bright future ahead, and we wish both Golder and Dr. Mahmoud well in their endeavors.
