Strong leaders for

high impact results.

Mining, Minerals & Metals

Korn Ferry’s Mining, Minerals, & Metals Sector focuses on ensuring companies attract, develop, and retain the highest caliber talent from around the globe. As the industry faces a diminishing talent pool and ever increasing diversity in both workforces and asset locations, leaders who possess the requisite global experience, multicultural competence, and specialized technical expertise to improve business operations are in high demand. Our dedicated practice members are based in key locations around the world, and we offer a full range of solutions designed to address the unique talent needs of mining, minerals, and metals companies. These include strategic global executive and non-executive search, competency-based assessments, interactive high-potential leadership development programs, one-on-one coaching, strategic talent design, and succession planning.

Redefining global leadership.

An increasing skills shortage; a growing emphasis on operational performance, managing costs, and globalization; concerns over environmental impact; and a need to protect capital and ensure better project development leadership are all driving companies to search for executives who combine true global experience and exemplary leadership skills. As the industry evolves, companies are seeking executives who are highly proficient at leading diverse workforces, have cross-functional experience, and are able to lead through change. We partner as a seamless global team to ensure you have access to the best leaders around the world.
