Industrial Manufacturing

The SkyWater Difference Is Clear

Globalization, advancements in engineering and technology, upstream challenges with the sourcing of materials, and downstream changes in consumer preference all conspire to create unique leadership challenges within the industrial sector.  While physical assets and resources will always be central factors, the truth is: it’s the quality of the leadership team that will determine future success.   Strong companies need a strong, multi-talented leadership team.  Solid knowledge of current sourcing options and manufacturing methodologies is no longer enough.  This is a job that demands total innovation, a fierce competitive spirit, and an unwavering commitment to delivering value to every stakeholder in the chain.  

At SkyWater Executive Search, we work with clients to identify what their leadership team needs, including skills and cultural fit, to be successful today and well into the future.  We have established deep and broad networks of proven leaders across all of the key industrial and manufacturing sectors.  Just as importantly, we leverage our connections with the talent pools of other industries to bring fresh and promising leaders to our clients’ teams.

“Matt did a great job. As you are quite aware, as a business leader I have a lot of options with regards to my recruiting needs. Over my 32 years of leading business, I probably have used a dozen or more recruiting firms for different roles. Most of them were out of state groups that specialized in what I was looking for at the time or are specialized in our industry. I like that you guys are local and seem to have a well balanced portfolio, and a personal yet down to earth staff which is much appreciated. Matt was a pleasure to work with. He was appropriately aggressive with our search and presented outstanding candidates that fit our needs. I will definitely use Matt again for our next search.”
