The Optimal Fit Advantage

To find the best, you have to find out what ‘best’ means. Filling a senior- to executive-level role in the food and beverage industry goes beyond the details of a resume. Wolf does a pre-search discovery to understand your needs from every angle and uses that intel to create the most thorough opportunity and candidate profiles in the industry.

We pre-qualify talent beyond surface-level experience and technical capabilities to find the leader with the most relevant core competencies, the right leadership capacity, who is aligned on motivation, and offers a tight cultural fit.

Assessing these intangibles are the key that unlocks the full power of the Wolf Search Optimal Fit Advantage, and its the formula we use to find leaders who will not only perform but ultimately thrive in your organization.

Our proprietary Optimal Fit Candidate recruiting process is the key to delivering on our promises — a concise candidate slate, a faster placement and onboarding, and sustainable results that speak for themselves. No one works harder to understand your organization’s placement needs, and no one gets food and beverage the way we do.

Real Recruiting, Real Results.

Conventional recruiting models have evolved to a heavy reliance on recycling from a stable of candidates and using impersonal technology resulting in a lack of actual recruiting. At Wolf, we are proud to be called 'headhunters.'

In too many instances, these conventional recruiting models produce long candidate lists and stacks of similarly polished resumes. This forces organizations to field exhaustive rounds of interviewing to narrow the field while key roles sit unfilled, increasing pressure and costs.

The Wolf Difference is the extra mile. We go deeper and faster. A shorter search matters, and it pays to get it right the first time. That's why Wolf puts in the legwork in rigorous vetting to align on every level and redefine recruiting.

Strategic recruiting is our core competency, and we are 100% focused on the food and beverage industry. We practice real recruiting, and we get real results for both candidates and clients on efficiency, accuracy, and ROI. Everything we do is mission critical, and we deliver unparalleled client and candidate care.
