In building the world around us, construction organizations are in a constant state of change. Globalization has opened up international markets, as well as invited a new wave of competition. Mergers and consolidations have reallocated market share and competitive advantages. Large joint ventures are becoming part of the new normal. Health and safety remain a core value, as sustainability and environmental impact rise on everybody’s punch list. All this while unemployment rates collide with unprecedented labor demand, along with a revival of the union workforce. Under such pressure, flaws and instability at the leadership level will undermine the longevity of a construction business.

Houses, roads, bridges, office buildings, power plants – each only as strong as the sum of its parts. The same can be said of a team. At TRANSEARCH, we understand how strong leaders are the building blocks of a high-grade team. In order to build value and enduring success with construction firms, we provide a range of executive talent solutions. For more than 30 years our core business has been executive search; however, we also provide stand-alone leadership assessments and onboarding assistance, as well as an option for building a robust talent pipeline.

Senior consultants in our global construction practice have more than 25 years of industry experience. During such time we have impacted hundreds of chief officer, division leader, and project executive roles. In order to cultivate firm, sustainable relationships with this leadership talent, many of our consultants regularly attend major conferences, including – DBIA Expo, the FMI Institute, IEEE Conference, and the ULI Annual Meeting. Moreover, we have a proven track record of partnering with investment and ownership firms as well as large multinational corporations headquartered around the world.
