Consumer Products

Radical new distribution models. Activist investors. Acquisitive private equity firms. Consumers with little brand loyalty. This combination of challenges is forcing consumer products companies to meet high-performance benchmarks even as the playbook for success has been rendered obsolete. What’s needed: leaders who are all about growth and value and who can create and support bold new customer experiences to drive engagement. The industry’s traditional talent management strategies created in the last century have yet to catch up to this do-or-die reality.

The Egon Zehnder Consumer Products Practice is composed of former executives of some of the world’s leading consumer products companies. We work closely with you to develop a personal understanding of the challenges you face. We help boards, CEOs, and talent management leaders both recruit and develop leaders who can create cultures of innovation and strategic risk-taking. Working with our colleagues around the globe in digital, retail, supply chain, and other practices, we can help you tap into a broad range of perspectives and talent pools to build truly creative teams. We look forward to partnering with you to turn challenge into opportunity.
