THE CHALLENGE

A major dairy business, which has been through a significant business transformation was planning to launch a dairy based prebiotics product. This was a critical programme for the business to diversify and to further revolutionise the company. Following significant investments in manufacturing, the challenge was to identify an individual capable of leading the growth of the business into the selected food and feed markets.

Through an extensive review process, we interviewed and assessed candidates across a diverse range of ingredients and technologies backgrounds to assess their suitability for this business build.

THE RESULT

  • A target audience of 109 specialist candidates assessed
  • 39 relevant businesses operating in the supply chain and competitive landscape assessed for
    suitable targets
  • A short list of qualified candidates delivered within 5 weeks

The business has successfully hired and put in post a Head of Commercial to shape and execute the commercial strategy into the feed and food markets and to optimise their go to market model around the world.
