Lead Consultant

Connor McKercher

Practice Leader: Paper & Flexible Packaging

Company Description

Global producer and market leader for Flexible Packaging

Job Title

Maintenance Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

5 months

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

Very few but did utilize a retained search firm for 5 months prior to our involvement

Why was this a real problem for the client?

The role was vacant and the #2 Operations Manager was doing the job in addition to his own responsibilities.  It started to create some strain with his personal life as he was spending a large majority of his time at the plant and not with his family.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

Our candidate was recently on the market due to a large reduction from the paper mill he was working at. A new manager came in and laid off several folks from the engineering department. The candidate did not want to relocate and there were only 4-5 local relevant opportunities. Most of his time was spent in the paper industry and he saw this as a chance to get with a more sustainable and growing industry.
