“Create Operational Excellence”
Attractive package to engage talent
We bring a rare brief to market for this ambitious food manufacturer seeking talent to lead their organisation into its next exciting growth phase.
With an admired portfolio of branded and own label products, they have recently innovated new exciting ranges about to launch that will tap into consumer meta trends.
The scale of the opportunity means the Founder is keen to focus on developing Sales which is his passion, and hand leading the business to a talented Chief Operating Officer which is a new role in the structure.
Well invested, privately owned, and profitable the ambition is to ready the business for world-wide growth into new markets and channels and ultimately sale. Currently most sales are through UK foodservice, with a limited presence in grocery retail.
The COO will build operational excellence and assist the Founder (who is CEO) to create shareholder value, which may include securing strategic Partners to build out into new global markets and channels.
The challenger mentality of the team means they are agile and entrepreneurial, operate with flair, energy and the passion that comes from being free of a restrictive corporate straightjacket.
The scope of this brief means your ability to identify which key opportunities will create operational excellence and scale up the business will be a natural fit. Of equal importance will be your track record of engaging your team through vision and purpose, by leading from the front.
The opportunity to have impact and be central to scaling up this organisation and creating a ‘Rolls-Royce’ manufacturing showroom, in tandem with the rewards available makes this position worth exploring further.
For an informal and discreet conversation please send your details to their retained advisors.
PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE LEADING OPERATIONS INCLUDING MANUFACTURING IN FMCG CONSUMER PRODUCTS IDEALLY FOOD/DRINK, AND YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO WORK IN THE UK.
All referrals are received gratefully and treated with discretion. Our client is an equal opportunities employer.
