Our client was a US based retailer with a grocery & non-food business. Its grocery business had failed to grow & innovate with the market & had become a strategic priority
The client decided they wanted to appoint a Commercial Director to lead the Grocery Commercial & Business teams from Europe. The European grocery sector was more advanced on fresh & convenience retail which was a key area of growth. It was vital though that the candidate had the capability to manage a business of real scale & billions of annual sales
Our Approach & Strategy
We conducted a comprehensive Europe wide search into seasoned retail leaders from the UK who were a recognised leader in fresh & convenience foods
Global Drinks Giant
Our client was a global drinks giant with a roster of iconic brands. Pivotal to the growth of the business was its ability to anticipate & respond to changing consumer preferences, to enter new markets & build scale in new segments.
Public Listed Retailer
Our client was one of the UK’s largest public listed retailers. The company had undergone a period of sustained poor performance & was seen to be lacking both in product & customer innovation & a robust turnaround plan.
