Connor McKercher

Practice Leader: Paper & Flexible Packaging

Company Description

A global leader producing flexible packaging food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical and personal care industries.

Job Title

Plant Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

Just shy of 1 month

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Yes, given their footprint in the industry, they have many resources at their disposal including job ads, internal recruiting, external recruiting and internal employee referrals.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client just recently merged with their largest competitor, making them the largest and most dominant producer or flexible packaging with a global footprint. The merger created opportunities for employees to retire. This also created a bit of unrest so they had a few key resignations.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we identified had an extensive background in the flexible packaging industry specifically and had experience running a very similar operation from a capability stand point. He was working in the New England area as a Plant Manager and had just been downsized. This created the need for him to get back to his home and family in Wisconsin, about 90 minutes away from the site we placed him at.
