Mid-Management Search Case Study

Search Assignment

Fortune 100 Consumer Package Goods Company wanted to build a sourcing team to manage their marketing spend, specifically media and advertising. They engaged us exclusively to recruit two strategic sourcing manager level positions.

Employment Issues

  • They required candidates to have media & advertising sourcing experience. However, this is a new sourcing area and there are approximately 200 people in the world with this experience.
  • During our search process, several candidates complained about the title of the position. A couple of them considered pulling out of the process because of it.

Placement Results

We presented 10 candidates that were interviewed. We placed one candidate in 31 days and a second candidate in 80 days. Best of all, both candidates selected were local, requiring no relocation leading to a faster start date.
