The Seemingly “Impossible Search” (Sometimes, it takes a fresh approach.)

A global food brand had worked with a multinational search firm for nine months without success. The company was looking for a chief supply chain officer to oversee global manufacturing, engineering, customer service, logistics, and procurement and lead a workforce of 15,000 employees.

Our strategy included identifying which consumer products companies had best‐in‐class integrated supply chain functions. We networked with consumer products industry executives and with supply chain experts at global consulting firms to identify where the top targeted talent was. We completed the search within 3½ months.
