Sales & Sales Strategy

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 Sales & Strategy 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 Sales & Strategy function executive search.

Companies operating in the food and beverage need strong sales leaders with strategic mindsets. They need senior and executive level sales professionals who understand the dynamics of the market, channel, and pain points of their customers, from shifting consumer behaviors and priorities to shrinking margins and increased competition. These candidates must have the expertise in go-to-market, route-to market, and commercialization while also exhibiting awareness of both company culture and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Finally, they must show passion for sales team development.
