Supply Chain Director

Client Profile

Family-owned food manufacturer with a nationwide retail customer base.

Role Objectives & Challenges

Due to continued growth, the client hired us to find a candidate who could help them elevate their processes across supply chain functions, with a focus on purchasing. They needed someone who had purchasing and contract negotiation with food commodities given their specific cadence and challenges.

Our Approach to Solve the Search

The location was one of our biggest hurdles as it limited the candidate pool given commute constraints. Together with the client, we were able to get creative in identifying industry-adjacent companies who would likely have candidates with similar skillsets to be successful in this position. Between those candidates and some directly from other food manufacturers, we were able to get a diverse pool of candidates in front of the client.

The Hire & Results

This search did take some time as we were working within a limited geography and looking for a specific skillset, but we did find several highly qualified candidates for the client to interview. Ultimately, they were able to hire someone out of another food company with comparable commodity purchasing experience.
