The energy transition is redefining the very nature of the sector, and digital transformation continues to blur the lines between the worlds of B2C and B2B. Industrial companies are increasingly recognizing the power of the customer experience as an engine for growth in an on-demand environment, and the need for meaningful, visible action on the major environmental and societal issues.

As a result of these shifts, industrial companies need leaders who can foster organizational cultures that encourage innovation to create the transformation most businesses will need to undergo, while bringing a razor-sharp customer and stakeholder focus in a fast-changing world. For more than 60 years, Spencer Stuart has been helping a range of industrial clients adapt to continuous, seismic changes in the sector through executive search, leadership assessment, succession planning and alignment of organizational culture with strategy.
