Practice Leader: Paper & Flexible Packaging

Company Description

A global producer of forming and non-forming barrier films.

Job Title

Sales Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

They relied on us to fill this position.

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

No

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client has been in the United States for several years, and now that they had their value proposition in check and capabilities defined, they needed to upgrade their sales force.  They had too much account management and very little prospecting going on, due to under-performance in general.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we placed had the perfect background for our client, having worked for almost 10 years at a direct competitor. He left the industry and went to work for another packaging business, while waiting for his non-compete to expire. The pandemic made this business very shaky and uncertain. His organization started to downsize employees and so, he decided not to wait around if that was going to happen to him.
