Daniel McDonald founded Lean Executives in January 2009. He has provided senior level Lean recruitment consultancy services to organisations across Europe and beyond for the last 15 years. Daniel works in tandem with his loyal client base and is genuinely committed and hugely passionate about securing high calibre leaders to lead and support Lean enterprise-wide journeys across all sectors.

Building sustainable Lean leadership and employee capability is key for driving successful transformations. This means assigning the right people with the right skills to lead and facilitate improvement activities so that both cultural and bottom line improvements can take place. Daniel has carved out an exceptional reputation in this arena and has become one of the leading executive recruiters in this specialist field.

Prior to launching Lean Executives, Daniel held senior posts within two global executive search organisations based in London delivering Lean enterprise recruitment solutions. Since 2000, Daniel has recruited global Lean teams for the likes of Burberry, Caterpillar, Crane Co., Ford Europe, GKN, Jaguar Land Rover, Meggitt, Nestle, Rexam, Rolls-Royce and Siemens.  He has supported the growth of several lean consultancies across Europe and Asia and more latterly diversified the recruitment of senior Lean professionals into Lean service environments and leading healthcare organisations.

Daniel is passionate about sharing business best practices and bringing networks together. He holds annual ‘Lean Luncheon’ events which bring together senior executives from across the spectrum of industries alongside quarterly Lean NHS forum events at The Royal College of  Surgeons. These interactive events showcase ‘good practice’ and attendees depart with fresh new ideas and Lean initiatives that can be utilised in their own work space.

 Our values, approach and experience make Lean Executives the trusted, specialist executive recruitment partner of choice.
