Connor McKercher

Practice Leader: Paper & Flexible Packaging

Company Description

A multi-billion dollar global producer of plastic packaging.

Job Title

Sales Representative

How long was client searching prior to our involvement?

2 weeks

Did client have internal recruiting resources?

No, they do not.

Why was this a real problem for the client?

Our client needed to hire someone to focus on business development and growth as opposed to account manager. It’s challenging to find someone like that and we had a successful working relationship from prior placements.

How did this opportunity help the candidate?

The candidate we placed was working for a large packaging company that had a great reputation. However, the sales process was very long and there were a lot of administrative policies that made it challenging for him to grow their book of business. He put forth a lot of effort for little ROI.
