Our client, a Canadian brewery, required a new Vice President, Supply Chain to provide executive leadership in the creation and development of a national supply chain strategy. With the objective of increasing shareholder value, the ideal candidate would bring best practices to every supply chain management process. Their extensive background in operations and logistics management, as well as, line and staff management experience, would help them optimize the utilization of corporate assets, evaluate new production opportunities, and lead supplier negotiations.
Initiating a search of the Canadian marketplace for top supply chain experts, our strategy targeted several complex multi-plant, multi-office organizations. Yielding a short list of candidates, these individuals demonstrated success in consolidating and streamlining operations to improve supply chain efficiency.
Mandrake recommended a seasoned supply chain and logistics executive with 15+ years of experience in consumer-packaged goods and retail sectors. This candidate demonstrated a capacity and unparalleled commitment to this specialized line of work, having successfully streamlined the operations of several similar, large organizations. Leveraging strengths in supply chain re-engineering and optimization of integrated logistics systems, the successful candidate worked with the senior leadership team to improve operational efficiency from procurement to production and distribution, resulting in millions of dollars in cost savings. The executive was quickly promoted to a senior leadership role.
What our client had to say
“What made Bill and his team at Mandrake stand out from all other previous recruiters that I have worked with, was his concern about me and how I would fit with the opportunity, both personally and professionally. While Bill was clearly trying to fill a key role for his client, I felt that he was also looking out for my best interests at the same time. I’ve been happily employed for 6+ years, proving that Bill’s approach is truly a winning one!”
