The Charles Aris Consumer + Retail practice serves a broad range of retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies including specialty, discount, department, big box, e-commerce, restaurant and grocery stores as well as the products they hold. The retail world is governed by an all-powerful reality: Consumers are not always predictable and profit margins are thin. 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 search team routinely finds and helps land A-level talent by not only matching individuals to the technical aspects of the position but also the critical cultural aspects of the client. We first get to know you and your organization's goals, then find the leaders to help you achieve those objectives. Whether you're in need of a Strategy Manager or a Director of Corporate Sales, our team will deliver the best to you.
