Introducing: Grocery Store Mike

Identifying and placing outstanding grocery and retail executive talent can be a challenging task. Today's customers have numerous buying options, and with everything from big-box retailers to small, niche merchants, and e-commerce, brand loyalty is fleeting at best. These senior leaders must have a coherent perspective of the unique ecosystem that their organization exists within and be adaptable enough to meet the needs of a constantly shifting marketplace. In addition, they are tasked with leading and motivating a competent workforce and implementing organizational processes. All of this must be accomplished while simultaneously executing strategies for cost-containment, increasing efficiency, and ultimately delivering higher ROI.

And of course, competition to find these innovative executives is stronger than ever.
