There is a need to hire a new Managing Director, business and customer-focused with a clear understanding of how to run a business within a similar business model. Someone who will drive, lead and guide the team, showing a new way forward. Someone who has a strong and honest leadership.
The Managing Director will report to the Business Board and will be responsible for a team of about 130 people between Sales, Finance, R&D and Supply Chain and Production.
This person will find a well-functioning production area, led by a Production Manager who is doing things well, although there are aspects such as quality (both product, service and customer attention) that needs to be improved, to match the expected level of quality and service in the group.
The R&D and Sales Departments are the areas where a new leader is most needed from a strategic and managerial point of view. The company has been fairly stable and has followed the same path for many years, and now it is time for a new Managing Director to start questioning how things have been managed and how they could be improved.
Company's culture is humble, easy, fairly flat organisation, avoids excessive reporting, and also decentralized, so the new Managing Director will have the opportunity and scope to make moves, but of course, following the main paths coming from the business board. One of the main challenges is to continue to develop sales in the domestic market.
The main objective of the Managing Director is to ensure the correct development of the business, in terms of Sales (internal and external) as a priority, but also other areas such as R&D, Finance and Production.
