The Company

This fast-growing public company is an innovator of high performance technologies which spans a broad variety of applications. It has an extensive product portfolio. It is a B2B organization which enjoys a customer base of global industry leaders. With a robust global presence and over 7,000 employees worldwide, this company’s rapid expansion has been fueled by a mix of organic growth and strategic acquisitions. Its financial performance has been consistently excellent, year on year, since its inception. We particularly like the global mindset of the leadership.

The Role

Based in California, this position has overall responsibility for global Human Resources, reporting to a dynamic CEO. The role has responsibility for a team of 50+ HR professionals. Over the next 12 months, key deliverables will include leadership development, succession planning, talent acquisition, performance management, and HR systems and processes – all on a global scale. Due to rapid growth, these capabilities are in place but still ‘work in progress’. Longer-term strategic planning, and putting in place a world-class HR platform to accommodate continued future growth is also an important area of emphasis.  

The Individual

The ideal candidate would be an established CHRO who has proven experience in a mid-cap company of US$5-10 Billion. However, an exceptional #2 person from a larger environment can also be considered. Global manufacturing industry experience is mandatory – with high tech hardware manufacturing being preferred. Style-wise, the ideal fit would be a direct and open communicator, business focused, numerate and data driven, very practical, and no ‘fluff’! M&A experience would be an asset. Board exposure and excellent senior stakeholder management skills will be needed. Global/international experience is a ‘must’, as is deep cultural sensitivity.

Unless the advertisement specifies otherwise, only HR Professionals who are legally able to work in this country can be considered.

Potential upsides
Number one HR role working with an outstanding CEO in a growing, mid-cap company that is performing exceptionally well.
Potential downsides
Company is relatively youthful and many aspects of HR are ‘work in progress’. This is definitely a ‘roll-up-your-sleeves’ position.
