Testimonial: Avery Weigh-Tronix, headquartered in the UK, is one of the leading industrial scale and weighing system manufacturers in the world, and a subsidiary of ITW, a $15bn revenue US conglomerate.
"When we contacted CEO Worldwide, we needed to find urgently the new MD for our India operation (600 staff and 2 manufacturing plants), the former MD having taken retirement.
The searched for criteria were:
• Managing director with significant experience in India and abroad, in the industrial equipments sector serving the manufacturing, construction or transportation sectors with more than 600 employees and multiple plants to manage
• University degree, possibly MBA
• Strong turnaround experience (kick-starting sales growth, implementation of modern manufacturing methodologies and increasing collaboration with the rest of the group)
• Bilingual Hindi-English
We have been looking to recruit our new MD for some considerable time without success. Therefore when CEO Worldwide presented to us its short list of candidates in less than 7 days, we have been really impressed to find amongst the selection of 5 profiles, the very strong match.
We appreciated the quality of the professional follow up and coordination service done by CEO Worldwide during the interviews and negociation process. CEO Worldwide enabled us to gain a lot of time and close the recruitment in a very short time frame despite the fact that 5 countries, with their respective time zone and travelling limitation due to Visa issue, were involved in the recruitment process (India, Oman, UK, USA and France).
CEO Worldwide played also an important intermediary role during the negatiation of the candidate contract conditions, enabled us to finalize the contract signature in a short time frame.
We recommand strongly CEO Worldwide executive recruitment service for companies which are looking to hire an executive in a short time frame and within an international context."
