Elevating Operations Leadership

Strong operations leadership is fundamental for manufacturing companies today, and Pender & Howe recruiters have the network and expertise to connect you with the right talent. Today’s manufacturing leaders face stiff demands in many areas. To rise to company and stakeholder expectations, they must balance topline growth with managing costs and resources, maintaining high product quality, and meeting the culture and work environment needs of employees. This mandate becomes even more challenging when the organization operates across borders, requiring an operations leader who can navigate the evolving global supply chain while achieving these business objectives. 

Understanding Operations Leadership Challenges

As operations recruiters, we understand the complex processes and responsibilities that come along with executive operations roles across industries. To achieve success, operations leaders need to have experience optimizing production processes to improve their effectiveness and efficiency, as well as expertise in areas like quality control, cost management, supply chain management, and regulatory compliance. These executives are also critical in building the operations talent team, and must have a commitment to building a culture of excellence and employee satisfaction to hire and retain the right professionals at every level. As product launches become more frequent and delivery times become shorter, the need for effective supply chain leadership is higher than ever for employers across the United States and Canada.
