Executive Recruiters for Beverage/Alcohol


Your beverage and alcohol recruitment agency

Key market trends

The thirst for new beverages, and the worldwide success of Canadian beer, wine, and spirits, are key factors in the continuing demand within the Beverage sector for talent in research, development, branding, product launches, and operations.

Plant-based products, non-alcoholic beverages, hard seltzers, ready to drink (RTD) beverages, sustainable packaging, and innovative marketing are driving exponential growth in the sector, chiefly through “premiumization” and differentiation. Data science is rapidly becoming a major business tool in the decision-making and planning processes.

We have been recruiting for the Beverage/Alcohol industry since 1983, and have developed functional expertise in Sales and Marketing, Supply Chain Management, Operations, Customer Insights and Experience, and Financial Management.

What our clients say about our beverage and alcohol recruiters

I consider the Lock team an extension of our internal talent teams… they know our culture inside and out, they know the market well and are great sounding boards as we think through approaches to resourcing. Mike and team are particularly agile and great at pivoting, calibrating as we go, and they always persevere to hunt down best possible candidate fit.
