    Positions We Fill

We Solve Searches That Seem Almost Unfillable

Executive Search in Various Industries

Executive Search can be highly challenging in the Chemical, Consumer Products, and Technology industries.

You're not just looking for a Senior Level Executive. For example, you may be looking for a person with prior surfactants product development expertise, who's also had high-level business development experience in the European Consumer markets. Someone who is now at the general management level, with $250 million+ company, with P&L and 15 years of leadership experience. By the way, the ideal candidate also needs to be working for a competitor of yours who also specifically serves dish detergent manufacturers. A very specific set of skills indeed! These are the types of needles in a haystack searches we're regularly retained for.

We know how frustrating it can be to try to fill that highly specialized position that seems almost unfillable. We excel at finding the needle in the haystack, anywhere across the globe.
