Automotive and manufacturing recruitment firm Tier One Executive Search says its customers and the industry think of the company for its work in the manufacturing area. But the business notes that its recruiting work has also taken place in passenger car, recreation vehicle, off-highway equipment and heavy vehicle retail operations for many years.
Now, Tier One is expanding its dealership recruitment practice in the United States and Canada.
“Our focus in the next 12 months will be to grow our client base within the top 150 dealership groups in the passenger car segment,” Tier One senior partner Mark Thibodeau said in a news release.
In Asia, Europe and North America, Tier One Executive Search recruits in the manufacturing area of the automotive supply base, but it will continue to concentrate on its retail practice only in the United States and Canada. Aynk Murtty, director of business development for Tier One, said the company has worked to ensure that its retail practice grows to 30 percent of its overall revenues by 2020. Currently, the company’s dealership side comprises less than 15 percent of overall revenues.
The company stated that it has added two team members to the fulfillment side of the business to support this effort.
“We have always been process-driven, and our recruitment process is the same; robust process for both the retail and the manufacturing side of our business,” Murtty said in a news release. “The key thing is that we are able to consistently deliver talent that has a positive impact on our client companies.”
Tier One added that it focuses recruitment efforts for dealer groups at senior levels and for general managers, sales/leasing managers, and finance and service managers at the store level in the United States and Canada.
