“The automotive industry is crosslinked in mature and emerging markets in various functional areas – so are we. We understand the specific market characteristics, operations and leadership requirements. This profound proficiency has been the key to our success as a worldwide leading Executive Search and Talent Management Organization”


With skilled and experienced consultants across our regions, we deliver exceptional search-expertise in a broad array of functions in the following automotive sectors:

  • OEMs like Commercial Vehicle-, Truck/Bus- and Special Vehicle Manufacturers
  • Automotive Parts Manufacturers like TIER 1, 2, 3 and other Suppliers
  • Independent Aftermarket
  • Automotive-Industry Service Providers
  • Automotive Retail-Networks and Dealerships
  • Private Equity Investors in Automotive Industries

While the Automotive industry sector is experiencing significant changes, there are new challenges arising. The conjunction and transformation of formerly different technologies, new market requirements and consumer expectations, cost pressure, tight margins, ongoing union activities and environmental regulations – the increasing “war for talents” even on Top-Executive–level, demands a truly global business approach and a distinct knowledge of the different industry sectors within Automotive.

AIMS International`s Automotive Practice is strategically positioned to serve the entire spectrum of Automobile businesses. We support and cover the client`s future needs by looking beyond the borders of leadership and succession planning. Each member of our Practice has deep industry insight and exceptional access to Executive talent, is experienced and skilled to identify excellent leaders with an international mindset, a global profile and vital expert knowledge.

The Practice offers its services with a global reach, partnering with the business in industrialised and emerging countries.

AIMS International has developed profound internal capabilities facing the challenges and solving the management recruitment needs of the automotive industry on a worldwide scale. Our team encourages and rewards collaboration, working closely with other Practices of our organisation. In this way, we can ensure the transformation of sector-knowledge to meet the market challenges and needs of our clients.
