Managing Director | Fresh Food
This is an opportunity to join a fresh food business with a significant turnover, whose influence extends far and wide, with interests both in the UK and abroad. The business is at a point where they can look to make a change of direction and they are looking for an experienced MD to help with the strategy and drive this change through. They have a fundamentally strong offering but competition is increasing and strong leadership is essential.
The landscape they are operating in has been in an extended period of change and adapting to this has been essential for continued success. As a result, there is some morale building that needs to happen to ensure that company loyalty remains strong. However, there are further opportunities to capitalise on these changes and ideally get ahead and start driving the change rather than being continuously reactive. There are some very experienced and strong teams in place with good "Heads of" department to ease the day-to-day burdens, but a clear company strategy will make a huge difference.
This isn't a job for someone who is looking to take their first step into a Managing Director's position. The person who will get this position will be an experienced MD within the fresh food sector, who is looking for a new challenge or a step up into a bigger business. A proven ability to affect positive change from both a customer perspective as well as with the internal teams. There are a number of stakeholders who have an interest in the business, so good internal relationship management is crucial.
