Executive Talent Acquisition for an Upcoming FMCG Brand
Upcoming FMCG Brand Insights
With the recent onboarding of a new CEO, a family-owned FMCG company aimed to rejuvenate its talent roster. The aspiration was to onboard an external expert who could spearhead the sales function, primarily focused on General Trade, for their innovative product line.
Pioneering Sales Leadership
The company's strategic shift required a Sales Head who could infuse fresh perspectives and strategies into a traditionally family-run business. This individual's core responsibility would be to champion the sales drive for the new product range at a national scale.
Intricacies in Executive Recruitment
The client's requirements were clear-cut: they sought an executive with over 15 years of experience, preferably from the top 20 blue-chip companies, to galvanize their sales department. Their intent to reinvigorate a traditional business with modern strategies, processes, and methodologies made the executive search process particularly daunting.
This challenge was met head-on when we were referred to the client based on our reputable track record in sales hiring, courtesy of a recommendation from a trusted well-wisher.
