Swallows and carthorses

Blog, 29 April 2014

The first few months of 2014 provided a cautiously optimistic glimpse of an improving economy, with industry leading the way and other business sectors following suit. Statistics Netherlands has reported this for the Netherlands and Eurostat has outlined a similar trend for the eurozone.

But in the international world of executive search this development has been evident for a while now. As far back as 2013 the demand for senior management positions in the industrial sector accounted for a quarter of all commissions.

Not wanting to discount other sectors, this demonstrates the importance of the industrial sector for economic growth. It remains unclear whether this recovery will last. But Maes & Lunau has noticed that its clients have a more positive outlook for the future than they did.
