Digital Transformation in Retail
We recruit, develop and advise leaders who can navigate through digital transformation.
With changing consumer behaviors and demands, retail is undergoing dramatic change. Key players in the transformation to omnichannel must have a board and leaders who can accelerate transformation and develop next-generation leadership. We are a trusted advisor to our clients during this transformative time.
Cybersecurity and the Importance of the Chief Information Security Officer
We recruit, develop and advise leaders from a talent pool based on our extensive knowledge of the chief information security officer role. Our Cybersecurity Practice is among the first of its kind in the industry, making us a forerunner in understanding the leadership implications that cybersecurity poses. Companies that have quality talent in the cybersecurity function are able to adeptly confront the rising cybersecurity risk. That’s why we find and assess chief information security officers who are as comfortable in the boardroom as in the IT backroom.
CEO and C-Suite Succession
We recruit, develop and advise stable, transformational leadership to ensure smooth transition.The rapidly evolving retail environment calls for dynamic and innovative leaders at the top. At the same time, recent instances of CEO turnover emphasize the need for companies to have a succession strategy in place so they are prepared and able to respond quickly when leadership changes occur. We have the proven experience and expertise to pair board members and executive teams with potential CEOs to ensure a seamless succession.
Expanding Geographic Footprint
We recruit, develop and advise leaders based on our knowledge of international and regional trends and have access to global talent pools.Increasingly, retailers are looking to grow their physical footprint in new global markets in order to increase sales and revenue growth, as well as gain a competitive advantage and improve overall company performance. Our retail consultants deliver strategic advice to help retailers plan, implement and optimize their international expansion initiatives.
Reshaping Leadership for Private Equity Ownership
We build out executive teams with the right agile leaders. In the past few years, private equity companies have acquired struggling retailers. With a strong understanding of the unique competencies and skills needed by leaders of private equity-backed companies, our retail team helps find and assess the right leadership for their investments.
The Importance of Brand
We recruit, develop and advise leaders who understand the value and importance of the brand and the connection with the consumer. The connection between a retailer and the consumer lies in the value of the brand. That’s why our work with retailers is focused on finding executives who possess a passion for the brand they represent so they can serve as true brand stewards.
