Executive Search & Interim Management

Competence Team for Consumer & Retail

Retailers and consumer goods manufacturers are particularly affected by the profound changes resulting from the digital transformation. The major influence of digital channels as well as disruptive digital business models are changing the brand and shopping experience from the core. Globalised trends are influencing consumer needs. Consumer behaviour is changing and new target groups are coming to the foreground. Adaptable business models that will stand the test of time must be developed to meet these challenges.

This is where our consultants act as your go-to experts for outstanding leaders who proactively shape the ongoing change. We help you find personalities who fit your corporate culture - with one goal in mind: the "perfect match". Together we will build your Best Leadership Team. 

Our industry experts specialise in executive search and the placement of interim managers for the consumer & retail industry and related sectors. We serve clients in a wide range of consumer & retail sectors. These include trade groups or retailers as well as consumer goods manufacturers from the consumer electronics, toy industry, imaging, beauty & personal care, fashion and home products, appliances & furnishings sectors and many more.

Our industry expertise for your Best Leadership Team Ever

The performance of leaders or specialists is critical to the performance of the areas they lead. They create competitive advantage or they lose it. As executive search professionals, we help our clients build the best leadership team they have ever had. In addition to acting professionally in the search process, the consultant's specialist subject expertise is crucial in determining whether only suitable candidates are found or the truly best-fit candidate.

No single consultant can be equally good in all industries and functional areas

This is why our consultants focus on competence teams: tailored to the requirements of the vacancy, they include the best available partner colleague in each case to ensure the best quality in approaching, qualifying and selecting suitable candidates. This way, we provide our clients with real added value that enables them to expand their existing competitive advantages with each new executive.
