Consumer & Retail
The true retail and consumer world is governed by an all-powerful reality: profit margins are thin, and consumers are not always predictable. This complex landscape, with its new technology and shifts toward omnichannel retail, makes the call for top leadership more important than ever.
The retail and consumer spaces require leaders who can deliver growth, adapt to change and maintain profitability. Given those hard facts, the differentiator is the talent of the people who work within the boundaries of those realities. The Charles Aris Consumer & Retail Practice consistently finds A-level talent by matching individuals to the technical aspects of the position and the critical cultural aspects of the client.
Jill Jitima is a vice president in the Strategy Practice at Charles Aris Executive Search, leading the Consumer & Retail Practice.
