Executive Recruiters for Core


Your core recruitment agency

Consumer preferences in dynamic markets

Core CPG industries include Food and Beverages, Health & Beauty Aids (HABA), Cosmetics, Consumer Healthcare, Personal Care, and Household goods. These industries are undergoing digital transformation, resulting in rapid changes for their recruiting needs.  The traditional methods of production, marketing and distribution are being complemented by a need to improve the customer user experience.

Candidates with knowledge of ICT, algorithms, and supply-chain management are eagerly sought by organizations eager to capitalize on the potential these business tools offer. Further hiring is ongoing as CPG companies address the issues of sustainability and packaging waste.  Innovative processes, operational improvements, and changes in user behaviour are creating measurable impact among manufacturers and consumers alike.

Our functional expertise combines tech-savvy Consultants who earned notable success as CPG leaders in Sales, Marketing, Analytics, Finance, Supply Chain/Operations, and Human Resources. We understand the knowledge base, the market research, the operational details, and the demand planning that impact the success or failure behind consumer brands.

With real-world knowledge and a strong team of our own, we have created a comprehensive network of CPG talent, nationally and internationally.
