Company: River Walk Executive Search
Location: Ames
Posted on: February 14, 2020

Job Description:

At River Walk Executive Search, we excel in "retained" engineering manager searches (like this one below) for our public and private manufacturing-focused client companies. -Our duty: - We find, assess, and deliver the "cream of the crop" of great engineering leaders to our client companies in need. We place manufacturing engineers with the skill and expertise in manufacturing. Our track record as a "boutique" headhunter firm competing head to head against the most well-known competing firms in this industry speaks for itself. We feel we are simply more nimble. We can recruit out of companies they cannot. This means, most of the time, because those competing companies can't take great talent from their own clients, we can, because we typically don't have the same client base! So we can place great engineering talent because we're simply not as big as our main competitors, and that makes us more nimble. - Plus, we have real world experience. - We are engineers. We have walked in both our client company's AND our candidate's shoes. We know what it's like on both sides of the aisle - so to speak. And we take pride in saying there are no better recruiting search firms in our manufacturing-client niche. With THIS search, we seek to find a dynamic authentic engineering leader to drive manufacturing business results in a plant as the CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT / PROCESS ENGINEER / MAINTENANCE MANAGER of one of the key strategic plants in this $1 billion private company. - - You will report to the General Manager. - You will be the engineering operations leader for this critical manufacturing facility - - a part of this company's multi-plant footprint across the USA and Canada. - Addionally, you will "own" the maintenance teams and processes for the plant, along with the CI programs. - You will provide leadership for manufacturing engineering operations through a centralized management organizational structure that puts you in charge. The buck stops with you when it comes to the engineering, maintenance, and continuous improvement efforts in the plant. - And further, this road has a high likelihood to lead to a promotion to GM with great results. - A top-performer in this role, who has proven results, will almost assuredly be promoted to General Manager. So we are looking for candidates who would desire this as a next career step. Thus, ability to be promoted is key, bottom line. Additional Responsibilities Include, But Are Not Limited To: Knowledge of CI (continues improvement) processes, methods, and leading this effort for a large group. Knowledge of Plant Maintenance systems, and being able to lead a large maintenance team. Being flexible, and willing to work within a 50 to 150 mile radius of Ames, IA on a daily basis; in fact, with total transparency, it may be more preferable to live north of Ames, which will shorten any commutes to the manufacturing plant(s). Working with a low percentage of over-night travel - a real plus; however, two important plants (including "yours") are located in central Iowa (along with the Corporate HQ) and therefore, "local" travel capability by vehicle is important. Having strong project management skills. Having equipment installation skills along with those project management skills, including skills in commissioning, validating, and verifying project startups. Having capital expenditure experience and managing a "CAPEX" budget. Knowing when to replace, or simply maintain equipment and can run the ROI calculations to prove that point. Being responsible for achieving annual objectives regarding plant output and costs and profits, along with the rest of the site leadership team. Having a comfortable management style with the ability to manage other engineers. Qualifications Bachelor's degree in engineering, would be key. - Or, other business or related degree from a four-year college or university is also desireable, HOWEVER, someone developing up from the "shop floor" who knows manufacturing and machining will ALSO be considered. 7+ years of industry or related experience preferred, with at least 10 years of progressive leadership and managerial experience or equivalent combination of education and experience; also, manufacturing experience in building materials is a plus. Must enjoy continuous improvement projects and "love" manufacturing engineering. Experience in non-union and union manufacturing environments would be helpful.
