This was effectively a turnaround role with a distributor of industrial products, whose business was driven by the housing and home improvement markets. Following a change of ownership, the focus of the MD role was to overhaul the commercial processes of the company and reorganise sales into a structured and sector-focused unit. We took a broad-based and flexible approach to the search, which concentrated on the leadership profile and associated characteristics, rather than confining ourselves to sector experience.
The appointed candidate possessed a successful track record that was gained in FMCG markets.
