The automotive industry – one of the strongest industries in Europe – has come under severe pressure due to the discussion about environmental issues and the implementation of electromobility. Particularly German car manufacturers are investing billions of Euros to cope with the upcoming challenges. Overall European car sales dropped by 8% in 2019, while sales at some of the car manufacturers dropped by more than 20%. This situation creates a high demand for managers who are able to cope with significant changes/declines in a business and Ward Howell is helping several of these companies – as well as suppliers of the automotive industry – to overcome such challenges.
