The industrial sector has been hugely impacted by globalisation over the past 10 years.

The rise of China as the world’s factory, and the fast evolution of transportation and logistics activities has forced nearly all industries to quickly and constantly adapt their industrial footprints. The fast growing BRIC markets have pushed industrial organisations to optimise their product portfolio and re-organise their distribution networks. Sourcing, off-shoring, outsourcing, setting up global supply chains, signing partnerships, transferring technologies, opening green-field activities, managing joint-ventures – all these activities have highly impacted the talent pool necessary to address challenges that will continue to emerge over the next decade. For more than 25 years, Eric Salmon & Partners has had a close and sustainable relationship with its industrial clients. We offer a unique culture (we share, we care), cross-border expertise, ability to work as a team, industrial expertise of our research associates, together with the past industrial experience of our consultants. The combination of these factors is key to providing our clients with customer-oriented executives, global minded supply chain managers, strategically thinking purchasing directors, world class manufacturing experienced plant managers, successful international commercial leaders or entrepreneurs. We have also demonstrated our strong ability to help our international clients in assessing their talent to better manage the continuous or dramatic transformations they are facing, whether that involves succession planning, restructuring, mergers and acquisition or re-engineering.
