Recruiting a Senior Leadership Team to drive business growth

Founded over 80 years ago, our global pharmaceutical client, headquartered in Germany is a family owned, entrepreneurial, science-based pharmaceutical business operating in over 30 countries with global affiliates in Europe, LATAM and the USA.  They currently employ over 5,500 people and generated just over €1.5billion in 2016.

Chameleon has partnered with our Client at a critical time in their development with the business maintaining a specific objective to achieve €2billion in revenue by 2020. Key to this ambition is the development and maturation of a centralised ‘best-in-class’ E2E supply chain across their manufacturing sites in Europe, LATAM and the US, including of course the corporate base in Germany which has over 1200 FTE onsite.

Chameleon have been successful in identifying and hiring a number of key profiles by targeting those with strong GMP backgrounds who have developed and instilled centrally led approaches for larger, more complex, global organisations. It is felt that the best talent to stimulate supply chain and manufacturing performance exists beyond the pharmaceutical industry so we have extensively profiled global industry leaders in the FMCG industry.

Senior Level Mandates fulfilled by Chameleon:

  • SVP Manufacturing
  • SVP Supply Chain
  • Global Head of Master Data
  • Global Head of Operational Excellence
  • Global Head of Serialisation / Track & Trace
  • Group Head Industrial Hygiene
  • Head of Global Indirect Procurement
  • Global Head of Strategic Category Management
  • Site Director Germany
  • CAPEX Global Program Manager

Culturally, with the business poised at a point where there is likely to be a higher than usual number of employees exiting the business, Chameleon have presented those with high energy, intellect, appetite and an interest to leave their professional legacy across the group. In tandem, and with the interest in future mobility, we have also been asked to locate and secure those who can speak German, Spanish and English.

Chameleon have partnered with the COO, CPO and Group Head of HR for Supply Chain / Operations across the above hires and will continue to support the business at SLT level as they head towards their revenue goal in the next few years.
