Leadership and operational excellence in the consumer & retail business
The consumer goods and retail industries are being hugely impacted by far-reaching changes. Digitalisation, omnichannel distribution, demographic change, inflation, volatile procurement prices and changing consumer behaviour are making business with end consumers increasingly complex.
Innovative managers who drive creativity, respond flexibly to ever changing market conditions and promote growth and efficiency are in high demand among e-commerce companies, wholesalers, retailers, fashion brands and luxury goods manufacturers.
From owner-managed SMEs and manufacturers of well known brands, to the tourism, leisure and hospitality industry, we are the national and international partner to industry-leading retail companies.
Kienbaum supports its clients in the search for and selection of managers along the entire value chain. From general management to sales, finance, marketing, HR, IT, supply chain, operations and R&D functions.
