Automotive / Industrial

The ASG automotive recruitment team specializes in original equipment and after-market manufacturers/suppliers. In addition, the automotive recruitment team serves OEM component manufacturers in the aerospace, construction, heavy truck, off-highway, appliance and industrial markets. Typical assignments include a full range of “customer focused” positions (sales / sales management, account management, applications, program management, marketing), technical disciplines (most engineering specialties, manufacturing, research & development, quality /process control) and a full-range of accompanying management assignments from middle management to senior executive positions.

The automotive recruitment practice has completed numerous assignments for a full range and size of client firms…from multi-national, Fortune 500 companies to mid-level public and privately held manufacturers as well as smaller “up and coming” organizations.  While our epicenter for automotive is Metro-Detroit, our team has completed assignments for U.S. and Off-Shore clients throughout North and South America, Latin America, Asia and Europe.
