Gerald Andrews & Paul Drummond

Paul Drummond, formerly vice-president of human resources at leading French automotive supplier Faurecia, has joined Quantum Search & Selection as principal consultant.

With an impressive background in Quantum’s key markets of automotive and manufacturing, Drummond is a perfect match for the rapidly growing consultancy:

He comments:
“It is an exciting challenge to move into the consultancy field, and I am looking forward to bringing additional value to Quantum’s client relationships. Quantum is a dynamic international consultancy and I am going to put my in-house expertise and experience at the disposal of Quantum’s impressive client base.”

As well as Faurecia, the leading European Tier 1 automotive supplier, Drummond has also held senior HR roles at Honda and fine chemicals business Akzo-Nobel.

Quantum Managing Director, Gerald Andrews, comments: “Paul’s appointment is very exciting as he brings 20 years of international operational experience in our key markets. He also has wide experience of designing and developing management teams. This means that our clients will be able to call on his knowledge to help them, in particular to restructure their business; to search for the best candidates for their needs; and crucially as margins in turbulent market conditions are threatened, to strengthen their continuous improvement capability through their people practices and coaching of key senior managers. Paul also strengthens our growing outplacement practice.”

With 30 consultants working in offices in Europe, Quantum has developed a reputation for completing assignments that other consultancies shy away from throughout Europe.

The company has developed and nurtured long standing partnerships with major automotive companies looking to make senior management and board level appointments throughout Europe in the automotive, manufacturing, engineering, FMCG and energy markets.
