TRW Automotive, headquartered in Livonia, Michigan, USA, is a major American-based global supplier of automotive systems, modules and components to automotive original equipment manufacturers and related aftermarkets. The company had 2011 revenue of US$16.2 billion, and approximately 70,000 employees.
TRW engaged Chazey Partners for business case work in Europe, Mexico, and Asia Pacific. In-scope functions for this Common Services Transformation review and implementation included finance, human resources, information technology, and site location. Chazey has provided worldwide strategic support over many years for several projects. Chazey’s work with TRW has been complex due to the global nature of the work and the required technology enablement. 25% Cost savings have been achieved against business cases. The projects completed have included organization design, process mapping/design, business analysis, benchmarking and best practice analysis.
Chazey Partners has been a trusted and valued strategic advisor on Shared Services to me and my TRW Automotive Shared Services Team since shortly after I assumed my role as Director, Global Shared Services for TRW Automotive in May 2003.
The wealth of experience and knowledge related to Shared Services implementations and improvements that the team brings have been invaluable. Chazey Partners has assisted me and my team with projects in the U.S., Mexico and Europe – advising both on strategy and implementation, including staffing.
I highly recommend Chazey Partners to provide valuable input and advice on all matters related to Shared Services.
