Over the previous decade, Azerbaijan has reached a new level of maturity. Due to the fact that Azerbaijan is a 30-year-old country, organizations may require c-suite or director-level expats in certain circumstances, such as: They do not exist in the country, they are scarce to headhunt, and they require more experienced executives who have managed large markets/projects to gain a competitive edge.
The requirement for expatriates varies from organization to organization. In the majority of instances in our region, firms require more indsutry experienced executives from high-competition, low-margin markets.
It is true that structural and maturity level changes are occurring, particularly in large local organizations in Azerbaijan and in regional countries. Telecom, FMCG, Retail, Distribution, Pharma, Consumer Banking and Consumer Goods Production are the domains where competition will continue to escalate and to experience transition because they are all intimately related to the B2C hemisphere. So, when we discuss transformation, we are talking about people!
A young country with only 30 years under its belt, especially when taking into account that its dependence on the oil sector has been minimized in the previous decade, meaning that its strong & competitive economy is only 10 years old. In light of the fact that effective leadership is a direct result of healthy competition, it stands to reason that 10 years is not enough for bringing a sufficient number or strong executives into the market.
To close this gap in Azerbaijan, Caucasus & Central Asia, Amrop's 65+ offices are available to conduct executive searches for expatriate C-suite and director-level professionals.
