Our client is North America’s leading distributor of the world’s top luxury and premium wines, spirits and beer brands and was created through the merger of two separate distribution companies. This merger opened up new opportunities for internal growth, which resulted in a promotion for their Senior Supply Chain Analyst.
- Supply Chain Management
This promotion created an open position for a new Senior Supply Chain Analyst.
So our client reached out to us for assistance with identifying a skilled Supply Chain professional with 3-5 years’ experience in:
- Demand and Supply planning
- Consumer products
- APS software
- Strong quantitative and analytical skills
- Advanced Excel knowledge
Our team was given the task of finding a candidate who possessed the required skills, who was able to travel, and who would also fit their unique culture. Our client had recently interviewed many candidates from other search companies that did not demonstrate the skills and quality that they needed.
After discussing the nuances of the position with the hiring team and learning the reason that the prior candidates were not a fit, we were able to start a new search to find a candidate who met the qualifications and fit the culture of the company.
To accomplish their project goals, our client needed a business analyst and a project manager to drive the Salesforce initiative. Specifically, they needed a Salesforce expert who could jump-start the project and meet all the key milestones–with a limited budget and aggressive roll-out schedule.
We took a consultative approach to start this search while using the expertise of our tenured recruiting team. As a result of gaining deeper insights into the unique fit factors of this position, we were able to discuss a variety of alternative hiring options with the hiring manager.
After a multi-week search, the candidate that we identified successfully interviewed and was hired for their team. Our candidate continues to deliver stellar results as they work through the ongoing related merger activities of the two companies.
Due to this successful search, we are now assisting our client with finding additional talent for new roles in their Supply Chain Department.
