Lead Consultant

Andrew Borrell

Vice President & Practice Leader: Paper & Packaging

Company Description

Our Client is an industry leading Paper and Packaging Manufacturer with over 370 facilities World Wide.

Job Title

Assistant Mill Manager

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

1 week

Did client have internal recruiting resources?


Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client had an incumbent Mill Manager set to retire in the coming year after 40 years of service to the organization, without a viable replacement in-house at the current time. Without the ability to have a transfer of knowledge taking place, the organization faced a very real possibility of the facility taking a step back from an execution of strategy and development standpoint.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we ended up placing in the role, was facing a situation in which, despite his efforts of moving a mill to being profitable, his organization decided to shutter the location due to the high prices associated with development of the mill in its specific geographic location. In addition, the organization in which we placed him would afford him the ability to truly see career and compensation progression in the coming years while allowing his family to get much closer to their other relatives.
