Interim to permanent chief executive
World-class sales and marketing expertise to drive growth
STG Aerospace is a fast growth company specialising in the research, development, manufacture and supply of electronic products for the aerospace industry. It developed the world’s leading photoluminescent aircraft floorpath marking system, as well as pioneering lighting systems and emergency power products.
Headquartered in the UK, STG is privately owned by a group of experienced entrepreneurs who have overseen continued profitable growth and the establishment of its market-leading product set.
Having built these foundations, the business required an injection of world-class sales and marketing expertise to further capitalise on its position and drive the next phase of growth. STG engaged Intramezzo on the strength of our experience in finding exceptional talent for entrepreneurial businesses. We were tasked with identifying and securing a C-level interim to focus on the development of key strategic OEM relationships to drive further growth. This was an immediate requirement.
A proven and successful individual was sought, with a track record in sales and marketing leadership. The ideal candidate would come from the aerospace sector, although there were concerns over the likelihood of finding someone suitably entrepreneurial from within an industry dominated by large global players, particularly given the urgency of the requirement.
The STG board felt this would be a challenging combination of skills to find in a short period of time. For the right candidate, there would be an opportunity to convert to permanent.
