Aerospace and Defense

“The team at DHR understands that although data and assessment tools are important, nothing beats the ability to really know a person and evaluate how they will show up in their new role. Predicting human behavior is still as much art as it is science, and you have to have both to successfully place new executives. DHR knows how to do this better than any other firm I’ve worked with.”

— Division President, Defense Contractor

Aerospace and Defense

The most successful leaders in the aerospace and defense industries know that this is no time to sit back. Political uncertainty has always been a given, but now, established companies are competing with smaller, more nimble firms that are putting more resources towards innovation. DHR’s specialty is seeking out strong leaders with wide-ranging experience who can tackle the longstanding requirements of aerospace and defense, while moving organizations forward by challenging conventions.

We’ve completed successful executive searches for aerospace clients in organizations such as:

  • Civil/business aviation 
  • Commercial aerospace 
  • Engineering services 
  • Homeland security
  • Major defense contractors
  • Manufacturing/supply chain
  • Space

We find candidates for the long haul. 86% of DHR candidates are employed at the same firm 3 years after their hire date.
