In Pacific International, we found a reliable partner to support us in this challenge. They have proven to bring the mission of Enstall (formerly the Esdec Solar Group) to life for potential candidates, match them with the right positions, and make them enthusiastic to join us. We gave them complex assignments for senior technology positions in different regions and they delivered every time on their commitments. The Pacific team is very engaged, capable, and nice people to work with, they match our company culture which is probably the best foundation for our cooperation and collective success.

Pacific has been pivotal in EU manufacturing talent turnaround over the last few years and building high performing talent pipelines for the future. Pacific’s ability to listen and understand our business needs & challenges and co-elaborate solutions has been tremendous. Current market conditions are challenging, we count on Pacific to continue help us attract the best of the best.

Magali Eyraud Corporate HR Leader, Manufacturing Excellence, Owens Corning

Our experience with Pacific was very positive and unique. Senior and complex roles in a specific niche seems to be just another day for them. Their process is very thorough and all candidates we have been presented with were relevant and suitable to the role. No time wasted, fast search and turn around. An Executive Search that initially seemed to be hard, painful and long, turned out to be pleasant, fast and successful with them. I’m very satisfied with their support and looking forward to working with Pacific again.

Championing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

If you want your organisation to thrive, you have to hire the best talent at the right level. When women and individuals from underrepresented groups reach the top echelons of corporate ladder, they start building more diverse leadership teams positively impacting their business growth.

DE&I enhances businesses ability to innovate, to be creative, solve problems, and provide an environment where employees feel valued, challenged to grow professionally, and contribute to their common goals.

Helping companies achieve their diversity goals is one of our core values. That is why Pacific International Executive Search champions diversity for every executive search mandate we work on and insist on including diverse candidates on every shortlist.
