Executive Search Firm For The Retail Sector
Clarke Caniff has a team of retail executive recruiters with retail backgrounds working for Fortune 500 companies, as well as small-mid size, privately owned retailers. Our retail recruiting experts are skilled in understanding your company needs, and providing you with the best talent available.
We understand the shifting tastes in consumer buying preferences and need for multi-channel shopping outlets. Technology has increased competition, but also allowed you to reach broader markets. Your customers no longer just depend on brick-and-mortar outlets to make their purchases. They are continually turning towards the web and mobile applications.
On top of external competition, you face daily operational challenges. The customer experience, shrinkage, and inventory all play crucial roles in having a successful retail operation. Trying to maintain JIT inventory levels is difficult when consumer tastes change frequently. Not to mention, everyone wants everything yesterday.
With the need to get products in the hands of consumers at an increasingly quick pace, you have had to rethink your entire distribution network. For some, this has meant more widespread, smaller DC’s, while some have turned their retail stores into mini distribution centers. Innovative thinking is what is going to push you ahead of the competition.
Let the executive recruiters at Clarke Caniff take the challenge of finding top retail professionals off your hands.
