Industry focus of Thomas Wild


Executive Search Consulting mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineering, as one of the key industries of the SME sector, is one of the flagships of the German economy. The decisive success factors of the industry include very well-trained experts. Managers and decision-makers as well as a large number of highly specialized specialists and engineers. With our experience and industry expertise, we find and inspire precisely the right candidates who have the courage and skills to successfully implement and exploit for companies the opportunities presented by the necessary restructuring, Industry 4.0, hybridization or even electrification.


Executive Search Consulting plant engineering

At Executive Search Consulting Koblenz, we take care of challenging projects in plant engineering. This includes, for example, clients from the fields of large-scale plant engineering, process engineering machinery and equipment, printing and paper technology, or thermoprocess technology. Mechanical and plant engineering is considered to be the export and innovation industry and also attracts many candidates due to its future-oriented tasks. This is precisely why more and more companies are looking for support in finding and selecting the most suitable candidates. We at DELTACON Executive Search are your partner here: detailed briefing, coordinated candidate profile, competent candidate selection and, as a result, the actual professionally and personally suitable candidates.


Executive Search Consulting industrial valves

Valves can be roughly divided into the areas of shut-off, control and safety valves. Valves are used in buildings, but also in industrial applications, wherever media (liquids, gases, or even solids, such as powder) are conveyed, usually in pipelines. Valves are used to control or interrupt the flow of media. Practically, there is probably no building or industrial plant in which no valve can be found. We at DELTACON Koblenz Executive Search know the industrial valve industry for many years from the perspective of manufacturers, suppliers and also as a customer.

Frequently asked questions to Thomas Wild

Why should I sign up for business networks?

By joining a business network, you significantly improve your visibility for recruiters. Without using social media, you run the risk of being considered "old school" and you risk disappearing from the market. Executive Search Consultants use select business networks to find the right candidate for their clients, in addition to their existing network.

What is cultural due diligence?

The term cultural due diligence is understood in connection with M&A deals as a comparison and intensive examination of corporate cultures. This involves comparing, for example, the management styles of the supervisors, the opportunities for personnel development for employees, or the compensation systems of the two transaction partners. Unfortunately, during M&A activities, significantly more attention is paid to financial and tax due diligence. This imbalance is probably partly responsible for the regular failure of post-merger integration (PMI).
In Executive Search Consulting, the term is used in a similar way, but to match the corporate culture with the personality and expectations of the candidates. At DELTACON, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools for this purpose, thus ensuring to the highest degree that the candidates on our shortlist are an ideal match for our clients' corporate culture and thus make a lasting contribution to the company's future success.
