When it comes to executive search for the food and beverage industry, we know that every search is mission critical. We are plugged in to what makes a great candidate across every functional role of your food and beverage organization, because food and beverage is all we do. We qualify Culinary executive search candidates for growth agility and cross-functional compatibility, taking a holistic view of your organization’s needs for growth and leadership. Our Optimal Fit approach ensures the right match the first time for your Culinary function executive search.

A culinary leader must have not only a passion for food, but also a passion for innovation and driving growth. They should have the skills to practically communicate their technical knowledge to other professionals and work cross-functionally on new product development, go-to-market strategies, and customer service. In CPG, business acumen with understanding of ingredient sourcing and margins is helpful, while in foodservice, menu design as well as systems training are particularly useful. Overall, a senior and executive level Culinary candidate must have a deep understanding of consumer demographics and execution of a brand’s mission.

Today’s growth-oriented food and beverage companies need strong leaders with the growth agility to embrace change and recognize opportunity in times of disruption.
