About Us

We are a boutique search firm focused exclusively on Sales and Marketing recruitment for the Consumer Packaged Goods and Consumer Durables industry.  Our mission is to secure the “Best in Class” leaders, possessing those unique, in-demand skills that will strengthen our client companies.  We strive to be the search firm of choice for companies seeking superior managers and executives.  We are committed to finding the best candidates and ensuring the best possible client / candidate match and have a solid track record of success in the CPG industry.

We work both contingent and retained search assignments. When we partner on contingent roles our approach is very similar to how we conduct retained assignments. We are looking for the best candidate for the role, not the best candidate that is out looking for a job. Top talent is always hard to find. The search requires energy, intelligence, focus, and passion.

We make successful placements because we offer practical industry experience, a unique partnership approach, and an extensive network of contacts. Over the years, we have worked with numerous companies resulting in a proven track record of success.
