Profitable, well-invested and technologically advanced, our client is an autonomous business unit within a privately owned circa GBP400 million turnover group with interests across the globe. With a profit of close to GBP6 million per annum, the business unit manufactures consumer goods sold to a range of "blue chip" clients and has a reputation for technological and manufacturing excellence. We seek to appoint a Managing Director to succeed the present incumbent who is due to retire at the end of this calendar year.
Supported by a full executive team across HR, Finance, Production and Sales & Marketing, the successful candidate will have proven P&L responsibility, will embrace technology and be highly familiar with modern manufacturing methodology. A background in consumer goods, the demonstrable ability to lead and inspire the executive, coupled with the commercial gravitas and acumen to interface with global blue-chip businesses are essential attributes. Well positioned and with an excellent reputation, the opportunity exists to build on the platform that the retiring Managing Director leaves behind him.
This is an outstanding opportunity to lead a market leading business that, through investment in its infrastructure, has developed as a niche player in its market place. With a culture of self-sustaining growth, the individual to be appointed will be keen to operate in an autonomous, entrepreneurial, dynamic group and be market-facing and customer centric.
The ability to originate and implement change as well as embracing technology and championing a collegiate culture are attributes that are taken as read.
