The retail market is facing unprecedented challenges in an era of increasing business rates, ecommerce, and digitally savvy consumers. The impact of the digital age on the high street has been unparalleled, and many retailers, including high profile names such as Toys R Us, have not survived. The traditional retail model of a high street presence is becoming less relevant, and retailers are focusing on more complex multi-channel offerings in order to be successful.

We know how important it is for retailers to have market leading senior executives who understand the complex dynamics of the market, and the ever-changing consumer purchase process. Delivering to customer needs is the primary focus, whilst at the same time, keeping abreast of technological advances which will help ensure costs are kept low, and service quality is high.

We understand the skills and qualities you need to have to ensure your business not only survives, but thrives in an extremely competitive market, and we have substantial experience in this sector, successfully completing a number of assignments including:

  • Sales & Marketing Director
  • Commercial Director
  • Head of Merchandising
