After years of strong returns, the chemicals industry is facing a number of challenges such as changing and uncertain economic conditions, continued mergers and acquisitions, and other diverse factors.
Such change also brings opportunities, most notably in the promise of digital to increase productivity across organisations, from procurement to sales and marketing.
These dynamics pose a challenge for leadership teams and place a strain on the available global pool of executives who can drive success in this environment. Companies need to rethink not only the talent they need but also their recruitment, development, and compensation strategies.
At Cripps Sears we know that for boards and senior executives to lead, and succeed, at this level they must master supply chains, processes, costs and sales and marketing and have the vision to build partnerships and place high-risk bets on fast-moving markets and emerging technologies. That’s why we continue to develop relationships with highly talented executives proactively across our global network to lay the foundations of trust and credibility to attract them to our clients’ leadership roles.
