The former US Secretary of Transportation and Chairman of a major aircraft manufacturer contacted K&A to help identify senior level executives from within the aviation industry who could execute the company’s growth strategy. Their primary need was a Chief Executive who had cultivated current positive relationships within the airlines, which could be leveraged to assist the firm’s marketing and business development efforts.
K&A’s search strategy began with a strategic outreach operation to top-level executives of major American carriers for recommendations for the CEO role. After compiling a list of viable candidates and conducting an exhaustive interview process, K&A’s client extended an offer to a candidate who ultimately joined the organization. As a result of the successful completion of this search, coupled with subsequent senior level searches, K&A’s client maintains a very positive market share in North America.
