Our client is the resulting spin-off company of the merger of two global, multi-billion-dollar automotive suppliers. This new business will present the market with a fresh, exciting brand, poised for significant growth. The executive team required an exceptional Human Resources Leader to partner with the division President, in order to develop and execute Global Human Resources strategies for a manufacturing organization. This position would be responsible for 18,000 team members and span more than 50 facilities in over 20 countries.
The search began in the early stages of the COVID 19 pandemic. This required a creative and sensitive approach to HR executives who were handling unprecedented issues. Our client also required a diverse list of shortlisted candidates.
Miramar developed a search strategy to identify key HR leaders across the manufacturing industry. We successfully sought out executives with extensive experience, serving as trusted advisor to the executive team and to the business units, with experience leading HR functions in global markets.
The selection process was conducted on a purely remote basis up to the final stage of interviews.
Despite the challenges created by the global pandemic, a 100% diverse shortlist of four qualified candidates was delivered within six weeks, and after an intensive screening process, the Vice President of Human Resources was selected.
