Since 1946, Boyden has consulted to multi-modal transportation clients worldwide in addressing strategic human capital, organization development, and succession planning issues for our transportation and supply chain clients.
Our transportation clients include:
Airports, Airlines, Aviation Firms
As the world’s oldest, leading airport and aviation executive search firm, we consult to large, medium, small, and non-hub airports, as well as airlines and aviation consulting firms including architectural, engineering and construction entities. We are an ACI World Business Partner and a member of AAAE. In the airport/aviation space we conduct “C” level and other senior officer/staff searches (e.g., finance, HR, legal, operations, security, technical) on a local, regional, national, and international basis. Our lead transportation consultant serves on ACI’s World Security Standing Committee and has been a frequent contributor to airport/aviation related publications.
Seaports & Maritime
Boyden has a wealth of experience in conducting senior level search assignments for seaports and shipowners. On the seaport side, the majority of the engagements have been for CEO/Executive Director positions and other “C” level roles. Boyden understands the importance of seaports as economic drivers of the community. In many of our transportation engagements, the emphasis on commercial success is an integral component of the search.
With regard to carriers, our lead transportation consultant has over 25 years of maritime and seaport industry experience serving carriers (bulk, liner, tramp, and project cargo/heavy lift). Our work for maritime carriers has encompassed all functional areas including CEOs, finance, HR, legal, security, shared services and technology. Boyden has been a long time member and sponsor of American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) and we are members of the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH).
Transit Systems & Rail
For freight and passenger rail companies and transit systems of all size and complexity including rapid commuter rail, Boyden is the first choice when it comes to finding executive talent and assisting in organization development planning. Boyden has been an active member of the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).
Transportation Infrastructure Firms & PPP Entities
We have consulted to numerous A&E and construction firms relative to a broad range of domestic and international human capital needs. Our clients include leading consulting organizations, engineering and architectural and design firms, and construction management organizations, primarily with a focus on transportation. Our search work includes finding talent to fill project management, principal/associate principal/partner, and senior engineering roles.
We collaborate with PPP and Project Finance entities in assembling highly qualified teams of experts for pre-proposal and proposal efforts in winning transportation (airport & seaport) infrastructure concessions. This effort includes identifying executive and non-executive board members and strategic joint venture participants.
Supply Chain & Logistics
Managing the global supply chain of a publicly traded aerospace & defense firm or overseeing the logistics operations of a national manufacturing entity calls for a unique set of skills that can significantly impact the economic performance of the enterprise. Boyden knows the supply chain and logistics space like no other search firm.
