Global Head of Talent


We were approached by a global leading manufacturer of medical devices serving an attractive and growing market. The group is currently present in 100 countries and employs over 14,000 people. A sharp dip in activity in April 2020 due to the pandemic was followed by a swift recovery, reflecting the market’s strong fundamentals.


The challenge was finding an experienced international leader who could build a holistic talent acquisition, development, leadership, and culture function in a major, growing multinational corporation focused on innovation and international expansion. During the search, the company decided to combine talent acquisition, management, and leadership development into one talent function to reflect the growing demand for talent and the need to ensure strong collaboration between talent-related teams.


We focused on candidates both within the country as well as strong and mobile talent abroad. We considered healthcare and medical technology companies, as well as other industrial and progressive companies known for their international approach to talent development. Our discussions centred around identifying versatile leaders with strategic skills and a proven track record in talent management operations, who are capable of building and leading teams effectively.


The candidate chosen had a diverse international background and extensive experience in fostering talent development, employee engagement, shaping modern talent acquisition and advancing diversity & inclusion culture in different environments.
