Blackwood Group
The search for excellence through excellence



Our Industrials Practice works in partnership with listed, private and private equity owned industrial businesses worldwide, providing comprehensive solutions for their human capital needs.

We have an extensive track record of placing senior executives into private equity backed businesses across all key industrial subsectors in Europe and further afield. We understand the private equity model and its specific requirements, timing constraints, sensitivities and risk appetite, and are able to deliver at pace and to rigorous specification.

We pride ourselves on deep, long standing relationships with executives who have direct prior private equity experience and on our ability to identify best-in-class leaders in the corporate world with the right skills, personality and motivation to succeed in a private equity backed company.

Listed businesses find our speed, ability and desire to understand their business deeply and our access to a dynamic, driven, highly skilled candidate pool a positive differentiating factor. This leads to regular repeat business from listed European companies.

  • Aerospace & defence
  • Automotive and transportation equipment
  • Building materials and construction
  • Chemicals
  • Energy (Oil & Gas and Utilities)
  • General engineering
  • Metals & mining
