Industrials & MedTech

The industrials sector represents a diverse and complex landscape with businesses engaging in activities ranging from materials processing to highly engineered manufacturing, to technical services. The wide array of vertical industries, each with their own specific role in the value chain from commodity to final product, offers multiple opportunities for crossover and applying lateral thinking.


The MedTech sector – from bioengineering to software – stands out for its relentless focus on patient-centred innovation. Setting new standards of care through a broad array of technologies and solutions, the aim is on enhancing safety and efficiency across the industry.

We Work Across Verticals, Locations And Owner Structures

Redgrave’s Industrial & MedTech practice works across virtually all the verticals within it – an approach we’ve adopted deliberately. While industrial businesses are highly disparate, many of their needs – especially around talent – are common sector-wide.

We operate from a single hub that equips us with a comprehensive global view of the sector, cultural awareness and language skills – an approach that maximises cross-fertilisation of ideas and insights.

We work with listed and private or family-owned industrial businesses, with a particular focus on private equity portfolio companies. Our understanding of the complexities and nuances of private equity is second to none. We recognise the intricacies of recruiting a CEO for a portfolio company where the nature and timing of the exit is unclear. We appreciate the impediments of hiring for a role below CEO where succession to the top job is on the agenda but is affected by factors unique to private equity, for example the exit route for private equity investors.

The segments we cover are:

In order to remain trusted advisers to private equity (PE) on all of their portfolio’s human capital needs, we maintain a sharp focus on the latest macroeconomic trends affecting the PE world. Through our work partnering with clients, we’ve gained unmatched expertise across the four areas becoming increasingly prevalent in the PE investment strategy:

While the majority of our assignments serve private equity, we’re seeing more listed companies drawing on our expertise from this world to apply to their own models. Providing advisory rather than transactional support, we’re brutally honest with clients about what’s achievable and what the current talent pool looks like – one reason why our completion rate is the best in the industry and why we see a very high proportion of repeat business.
