CONSUMER PRODUCTS AND RETAIL ARE IN TORCH GROUP’S WHEELHOUSE AND NAVIGATING CLIENTS TO THE RIGHT TALENT IS A BREEZE.
Our depth and breadth of experience as retail executive recruiters includes consumer packaged goods (CPG), consumer durables, major appliances, housewares, consumer electronics, food & beverage and a myriad of retail chains including grocery, drug, convenience, home center stores, QSR and fast-casual restaurants, and home and luxury goods merchants.
Each segment of the consumer products and retail industries requires different skill sets and experiences based on the nuances of the way products are marketed, advertised, promoted, merchandised, and sold and purchased. Experience in executive search and knowledge of branding and positioning, consumer behavior, market research, shopper and trade marketing is paramount to understanding the make-up of a successful marketing executive in any of these consumer and retail segments.
Due to our founders’ early careers in leading Fortune 500 consumer products companies, we understand, better than any other retail executive search firm, the competencies and responsibilities required to integrate sales & marketing, innovate new products, drive growth and obtain additional market share in these highly-competitive companies. In this consumer-driven arena, the drive toward differentiation, early adaptation, and innovation is essential to gaining a lasting advantage.
At Torch Group, we seek out and recruit retail and consumer products leaders that are industry executives who are happily employed and uniquely qualified to identify market opportunities, develop plans & strategies, and flawlessly execute tactics to drive measurable results. When a consumer products company or a retail company-or franchise-owned chain has competent leadership at the helm, it’s inevitably smooth sailing. This is why having experienced consumer packaged goods recruiters on your side matters.
