For one multinational client, TRANSEARCH was selected to conduct its 12th search for this company during the past seven years. The mandate was to recruit and hire a Chief Operating Officer (COO) to lead and drive business throughout the Americas. This hundred-year old company is a global leader in the design, engineering and construction sector. One key aspect of the role, this new COO would have to unify distinct business segments – previously operating in silos – into a cohesive, client-oriented enterprise.

With a hiring committee spanning two continents, and frequent travel for business, the search timeline had to achieve aggressive milestones. The written candidate profiles submitted by TRANSEARCH were wildly comprehensive, evaluating various elements of fit from Profit & Loss experience to a track record of effecting culture change. Ultimately the search was completed within 90 days, and the candidate integration was seamless. Since then, the client has retained TRANSEARCH on additional assignments.
