Consumer Practice

Our Consumer team is made up of specialists with a deep understanding of, and an overt passion for, their respective areas. We all have a loyal Client and Candidate following, borne out of a genuine interest in the people we work with and the businesses they manage.

Some of our Consultants have had senior level careers on the client side, in general management, sales, marketing and supply chain. This hands-on experience has proven invaluable in really understanding what the Client wants and also in developing extensive sector networks.

Our track record, which goes back more than 40 years, has been developed in the following sub-sectors:

  • Branded and private label food and beverages
  • Beauty and personal care
  • Sport, health & well-being and lifestyle
  • High Street Retail
  • Travel, Leisure & hospitality
  • Gaming
  • Consumer technology

Our Consumer team delivers assignments for senior executive and non-executive roles, both permanent and interim, in all the major board-level functions, namely in general management, finance, sales, marketing, supply chain, HR and IT.
