Automotive Engineering Recruiters


Since the late 90’s, a core practice area of our firm has focused on recruiting automotive engineering executives. We have assisted both automotive OEM suppliers and aftermarket suppliers in their search for both Directors of Engineering and Chief Engineers. This has occurred across multiple industries including machined parts, automation, stampings, plastics, etc.


A practical example of our work would be for Mercury Manufacturing, an automotive supplier located in Wyandotte, MI. Traditionally the company had derived less than 10% of its revenue from check valves. However, with increasing demand of 150%, the company needed to locate a new Director of Product Development Engineering who could further design and develop this product line. Within 90 days we located a panel of 6 candidates, from which a new Director was hired.

Jan Wiegand, President of Mercury Manufacturing had this to say about working with us:
From the very beginning of the search they understood the importance of finding the right individual who could add value to our company by increasing our revenues and profits. This understanding saved us countless hours and thousands of dollars by enabling my team to interview only the most talented candidates for the position.

In addition to saving us time and money, they eliminated the frustrations typically experienced in dealing with executive recruiting firms. They were courteous, professional and kept us frequently informed as to the status of our search. Most importantly, in the end they recruited an outstanding panel of finalist candidates. No other executive recruiting firm has ever delivered results like this and in such a professional manner.
