Executive Recruiters for Operations

The lifeblood of every business

A career in Operations relates to the flow of goods, information, and money throughout an organization; it encompasses finance, marketing, and accounting. Candidates and employers are best served by working with a qualified Recruiting Consultant.

Business strategy, acquisition and allocation of resources, production planning, product quality, and distribution are the pillars of Operations. In the past five years, the field has changed dramatically. Effective Supply Chain Management and better Customer User Experience now dominate the business goals of Operations executives.

As recruiters who have devoted almost 20 years to the Operations field, we have observed the impact of digital disruption to Operations. The use of Artificial Intelligence, ICT strategies, algorithms, robotics, and data science are becoming integral to successful firms.

Over the years we have placed dozens of candidates in established firms as well as start-ups. Lock Search Group is perhaps the best-networked search firm in the Operations field today.
