The Brief

Our brief was to appoint a Buying and Merchandising Director to the Board of a business with European headquarters.

To support a re-structure, our client retained Fortune Hill to appoint a Buying & Merchandising Director for their European business. The role would also have responsibility for Supply Chain and Marketing functions so it was critical that the successful candidate also had expertise in these areas.

The Process

Due to the specific nature of the search, our Research Consultants identified candidates throughout the UK, Europe and the USA, in pursuit of the very best individual for our client's business.

The search was incredibly extensive, looking into all major consumer fashion brands and targeting a variety of levels of seniority. Our detailed knowledge of the fashion industry led us to a shortlist of candidates from major brands including Levi, Nike, Adidas and Ralph Lauren.

The Result

The client was able to hire the candidate who best fitted their unique needs and culture.

The successful candidate was based in the US, therefore considerable time was taken to support them with the relocation of their family to Europe. Our team dedicated a significant amount of time and expertise to ensure both the candidate and client were satisfied with the outcome.

"I highly recommend Fortune Hill. They placed me in a new role and I have to say the service and commitment were great from start to finish." Successful Candidate
