Group Managing Director

Our client is one of the market leaders within food manufacturing, operating in a multi-site environment in the UK, with strong relationships with all of their customers. As a result of continued expansion they are now looking to appoint a newly created role of Group Managing Director to take this successful business on to the next stage and develop it further.

We are therefore looking for an accomplished Managing Director with strong people and leadership skills combined with an analytical and strategic mindset. We are looking for someone with a commercial bias from the food manufacturing sector, ideally with a background in sales and marketing. We need someone who can take charge of day to day situations yet have an ability to set out a business strategy in conjunction with the Main Board and deliver against this.
We need someone who understands food manufacturing, someone who is commercially astute, someone who can develop excellent relationships at a senior level with the multiples and a natural team leader with a track record of driving growth whilst maintaining gross and net profits.

It is likely that you are either an established Managing Director or you are a commercially based director, used to managing and leading teams and used to contributing at a senior level from a strategic perspective. Overall you should be assertive, a good presenter and negotiator with strategic, tactical and operational skills.

The role attracts a significant base salary + bonus, LTIP+ executive package.
