Opportunity

Managed by Mike Powell / Associate Partner

Our client is a fast-growing, electric bike design and manufacturer; a creative company driven by a passion for bikes and a desire to remain at the cutting edge of innovative design. They have offices in the UK and USA, a strong customer-centric culture and have sold over 25,000 bikes in over 25 countries. The company has ambitious plans and is seeking to hire a dynamic Managing Director who can build on the existing business foundation and take the company forward in the next exciting phase of growth and development.

Reporting to the Chairman, the MD will contribute to the development of the Business Strategy, lead the day to day implementation of the 3-year Plan and manage the P&L. Providing leadership to the company’s 25 staff, the MD will establish and implement an organisational plan that complements and expands the UK and US teams as necessary. The MD will provide direction to the Taiwanese manufacturer, ensure the highest quality and efficiency is maintained in production and supply chain activities and will build the international distribution network to support the growth plans.

We require a proven Managing Director with a track record of delivering international business growth. A strong operational background and knowledge of manufacturing and supply chain processes will be advantageous. Analytical and detail orientated, the new MD will have an open and collaborative approach combined with the proven ability to positively drive operational and process improvements. Decisive and action focused they will have the adaptability and “hands-on” approach to apply their experience in a small but fast-growing entrepreneurial international business.
