The Manufacturing Sector remains a cornerstone of the global economy. In the US alone, 378,000 manufacturers employ over 14 million employees and account for over 12% of the United States GDP. Successful manufacturing organizations have met myriad challenges in technology, productivity, costs, supply chain, quality and human capital, plus threats to their competitive positions. Continuous, rapid improvement has been essential to their meeting changing market forces and increased customer expectations.

It’s essential to keep pace through process improvement and capital investment, but the fundamental competitive differentiator continues to be great leadership. TowerHunter finds great business and functional leaders across industry segments and for Fortune 500 and smaller manufacturing companies – publicly traded and privately held.
