Transport, Logistics and Infrastructure
Hanover Fox has for many years been a leader in transport and infrastructure executive search and selection, helping to secure the outstanding talent for leading companies and major projects.
Our capacity in the sector is strengthened and given exceptional depth through our close working partnership with Transport Intelligence (TI) – www.transportintelligence.com. As the leading provider of up-to-the minute information, analysis and insight into the transport and logistics arena, TI have an unrivalled knowledge and exceptional contact base. The partnership allows Hanover Fox to support a broad range of clients, whether initially known to ourselves or to TI, in their senior resourcing needs without fear of conflicts of interest or confidentiality. Our combined capacity, both companies believe, provides an unbeatably perceptive and effective recruiting solution for our clients.
Highways, railways, air transport, the logistics industry and related technology companies are all familiar territory to Hanover Fox in its executive recruitment work within the transport and infrastructure arenas. The firm has helped many major operators, contractors and suppliers to secure senior executives with the experience needed to work successfully with large capital projects.
Clients are often companies operating in highly specialised industries, looking to identify talent with transferrable skills from parallel sectors. Hanover Fox provides executives who can also bring technical, logistical or strategic strengths to bear in client companies.
Recent assignments include:
- Managing Director
- Operations Director
- Technical Director
- Senior Projects Director
- Business Development Director
- Bid Director
- Key Safety and Assurance appointments
The firm will create an individual strategy for each assignment, using executive search, advertised executive selection or a hybrid approach as appropriate. Assignments include UK appointments, and European, and global appointments using our network through the ECI Group.
We recruit general managers/chief executives, divisional heads and heads of function, and other senior roles requiring impact and leadership in sectors defined by rapid change, leading edge thinking and, more often than not, risk. Our work in Transport and Infrastructure requires a faster response to market and technology evolution, and consequently even greater focus on personal attributes. Our assignments have involved us in international search spanning Europe, the Middle and Far East.
