Connected car, electric mobility, autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, intelligent mobility concepts, lightweight vehicle construction, system innovations, model diversity, new international growth markets – hardly any other sector is currently confronted with as many trends, challenges, but also opportunities as the automotive industry.
In addition, the impact from the coronavirus has caused another disruption within the automotive sector. Even worse, the situation is changing rapidly and continuously. Car manufacturers and suppliers are exposed to continuous pressures in innovation management, productivity increase and cost reduction. All processes and structures critical to success must therefore be continuously revised and optimized.
The experienced partners of Executive Interim Partners support the medium-sized supply industry and car manufacturers with their know-how in the automotive sector as interim managers and consultants, especially in the following tasks:
- Operational support in the implementation of value enhancing programs for short- and medium-term cost optimization projects (e.g. in the areas of productivity enhancement, operational excellence, purchasing/SCM) and cash flow improvement programs (e.g. working capital reduction).
- Implementation of strategies for growth and top-line initiatives (e.g. internationalization, innovation or optimization of the assortment and service portfolio)
- Takeover of interim management tasks in executive positions (CRO, CEO, CFO, CPO, CSO, CMO, etc.) or project management and implementation support for performance improvement programs, as a part of restructuring projects.
Our partner team has extensive experience and references from previous interim management and consulting projects in the automotive sector. We happily provide you with further details about the references after consultation with the respective companies.
