Our client, a multi-billion-dollar global technology company, needed to transform the engineering leadership team within it’s high-growth medical device, contract design, and manufacturing division. Having recently completed several major acquisitions, and combined with significant organic growth, the division was struggling to maintain. They were having trouble consistently meeting customer expectations on timelines and cost, and as a result, the culture within the organization became one of pointing fingers and a “can’t do” mindset.
They required a refresh in engineering leadership, hoping to bring in individuals capable of breathing new life into the organization. They needed leaders who could turn the culture around and implement modern engineering methodologies, which can enable more efficient, predictable product development lifecycles.
Miramar was chosen for this project because of our track-record of aiding Medical Device companies to identify and hire change management experts. Miramar conducted a deep-dive interview with the hiring team to understand the exact skills and characteristics that were needed in the new leadership team. We developed a sourcing strategy that targeted the organizations known to have gone through similar transformations previously. Miramar combined its extensive network and proprietary sourcing tools with a customized and unique outreach campaign, which helped to rapidly identify the pool of relevant candidates and quickly attract them to the opportunity. Ultimately, we applied a bespoke, rigorous assessment program to determine the best candidates in the market for our client’s new engineering leadership team.
In under 75 days, our client was able to interview a diverse slate of 15 total candidates and made three successful hires, reinvigorating their engineering organization. Furthermore, Miramar delivered detailed feedback on their competitors and customers impression of their brand, insight into org design, compensation structure, and more amongst their competitors.
