Aviation, Aerospace & Defence
Few industries are in as constant a state of flux as the aviation, aerospace and defence sectors.
The aviation sector alone is constantly subject to new demands for ultra-efficient aircraft and technologies, as well as for up-to-date business models that allow passengers and cargo to move quickly and efficiently. That’s to say nothing of the ebbs and flows of aviation, which often sees rapid expansions and sudden contractions as a result of global events, ranging from disruptions caused by military actions to global health concerns that can bring passenger travel to a standstill.
The defence sector, for its part, has to contend with ever-changing geopolitical challenges…
Shifting alliances, complex and evolving asymmetrical threats and geographical shifts that highlight the importance of emerging regions such as the Middle East and South Asia.
To be up to the challenges, aviation and defence businesses must identify, recruit and retain leaders with strong international experience and bring together a team that can work together to develop a wide variety of products and services. Most importantly, this sector – perhaps more than any other – requires leaders that can think on their feet and thrive even in difficult and uncertain times.
As the sector continues to change and look towards the challenges and opportunities of the future, businesses in the sector are increasingly working on their internal succession plans to ensure that tomorrow’s mission-critical roles are filled and that the next generation of leaders has been identified and is being developed.
The industry-specific Cooper Fitch aviation, aerospace and defence team has years of experience in the sector and a proven track record of helping firms attract, develop and retain the leaders they need. A properly qualified and trained team will become even more important in the future as markets shifty, and new technologies emerge.
