In the fast-moving world of technology, without clear vision and leadership the pace of change and intense competition can engulf leading businesses in the blink of an eye. In the ever-converging domain of information management and communications technology, new products, ideas and innovations come along on a daily basis. From IoT to connected devices and smart technology, our consultants have the expertise to help our clients develop human capital strategies that will drive growth and maintain profitability. Jordan Sheppard's technology practice works with a selection of industry-leading global clients. We retain close links with the investment community and regularly assist the growth of high technology organisations from start-up to maturity.
Private equity firms by nature are conservative about capital investment and recognise the critical need for human capital as the best route to supporting their mission. In addition to the traditional investors from private equity and investment banking, there has been a significant flow of capital from East to West over the last five years. With the increase in funds available and the simultaneous decrease of attractive investment targets PE companies are forced to pay a premium which puts pressure on leadership to deliver results. Jordan Sheppard leverages industry knowledge to place high-level executives, who are the driving force for uncovering untapped areas of growth for PE ventures, sourcing of future investments and reigniting the spark in brands which hold untapped value mixed with the mastery of business dynamics.
The global construction industry continues to transform emerging economies and to improve the lives of billions of people around the world through the development of better infrastructure and buildings; from carbon-zero housing to record-breaking mega-projects. In parallel to the growth in global construction, the real estate services industry has transformed from a purely transaction oriented local business to a multifaceted global real estate outsourcing service that can offer anything from soft facilities management to capital market advisory services. Since our inception, Jordan Sheppard has assisted many global and regional construction, engineering and outsourced service organisations to enhance their senior leadership.
Industrial companies have been at the forefront of innovation ever since the Industrial Revolution, however, in recent years, the complexity of their global operations has dramatically increased due to a shift towards automation, digitisation, time-to-market pressure and a constant focus on innovation. R&D has become critical to the success of any business leader in this sector and the overly heavy, bureaucratic manufacturing structures are a thing of the past -- agility, speed and the integration of software solution are the sources of competitive advantage. Jordan Sheppard's industrial practice has a breadth of experience across sectors, business models and functional capabilities and has supported its partners in critical roles, spanning operations, supply chain, industrialisation, production, r&d, quality and overall business leadership.
The healthcare and life sciences sector has grown over the last 150 years to become an integral part of everyday life. From the supply of much-needed vaccines for the children of the emerging markets to the "state of the art" diagnostic equipment used at the leading research hospitals in the developed world, the sector has been led by household names within medical consumables, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical equipment and devices industries. Jordan Sheppard is working with a number of the leaders in this sector to facilitate the innovation and critical development of products by the sourcing of leading-edge scientists, r&d specialists, product and business leaders, as well as senior management, sales and marketing professionals and supply-chain strategists.
Our clients realise that in order to be successful in today's business environment it is critical to understand the trends in consumer behaviour and adapt to dynamic changes. In this highly-pressurised environment, organisations need exceptional leaders that have the power to inspire, drive change and energise their business. Attracting and inspiring such leaders is challenging, requiring real in-depth knowledge and expertise, as well as finesse, dedication, and commitment. Jordan Sheppard's consumer practice focuses on assisting market leaders, start-ups and medium-size businesses with their global talent needs.

Jordan Sheppard operates within every aspect of transportation - automotive, aerospace, rail, marine and space exploration, supporting a number of OEMs and first and second tier companies.
Despite the development of renewable energy, fossil fuels will continue to dominate the energy mix for many years to come in most developed and developing markets. This industry requires a continuous supply of high calibre senior and middle management.
