Consumer Products and FMCG Executive Search Specialists

As consumers demand more transparency, brand engagement and sustainability, Novo’s consumer markets capabiliy is at the forefront of industry trends to provide cutting edge advice to clients in a wide variety of consumer sectors. Our consumer market expertise is backed by a history of successful talent acquisition and organizational alignment.

Competition among consumer companies has never been fiercer.  Customers are shopping in new and sometimes non-traditional ways as mass market retailers offer designer goods, brick and mortar staples are available on-line and venerable brands spin off agile brand extensions.  Consumer companies are also keen to capitalize on the potential of emerging and high growth markets. This means having the right leadership in place is critical.

We have the ability to recruit the talent necessary to leverage established and emerging functional expertise and even entirely different roles within a company. This often means integrating the organization with talent from other industry sectors.  With broad global presence and deep sector expertise, we anticipate future needs to help clients successfully secure the right leaders who will enhance innovation within their organization.

The daily conversations and network of our global team brings understanding of leadership dynamics in growth markets and how to answer the critical questions to meet talent demand.

Backed by a team of passionate experts, we advise clients in a variety of consumer sectors to clearly assess and identify the competencies needed for success. From building powerful brands and streamlining supply chain operations to penetrating new markets and delivering financial objectives, we are focused on helping companies realize their investment in talent for today and the future.

RETAIL & APPAREL

Retailing remains a fragmented business, with millions of transactions occurring in thousands of local outlets and over multiple channels making competition for consumer spending fiercer than ever. Our Retail & Apparel team of experts have conducted numerous senior-level and board director assignments for the retail, fashion and luxury goods industries. In short, we know how to harness this vast retail sector to deliver results with passion, creativity and ingenuity.

Novo understands the requirements of increasingly complex management positions in the retail and apparel sectors. We develop customized plans illustrating how organizational structures need to evolve. Successful companies need both creative and conceptual executives who know how to enhance brand image, operational excellence, customer experience and quality product into a competitive advantage.

Our constant activity in this marketplace positions us to identify and engage executives with key critical attributes for retail clients:

  • An understanding of the complexities of an omni-channel strategy
  • The merchandising savvy to anticipate customer needs
  • The ability to cultivate brand equity and increasingly brand community
  • The financial acumen to increase revenues while controlling operating costs and shrinkage
  • The team building skills to attract, develop, motivate and retain top talent
  • Experience to successfully lead organizations in global markets

With unsurpassed geographic scope, Novo serves retail and apparel clients across a broad range of functions and sectors, including multi-nationals, regional and local players and increasingly, private equity-backed firms. 

MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT

For media and entertainment companies, recruiting and retaining top leadership talent is not only the key to success, but critical for survival. Novo’s Media & Entertainment sector experts focus on helping companies realize their investment today by delivering the right leadership and developing those leaders for tomorrow.

Few organizations face such complex hiring challenges as those in the media and entertainment industries. The digitization of media allows multiple platforms to now deliver content of constantly shifting value. Traditional companies have watched their revenue models implode, their geographic footprint expand, and their consumers become more demanding and less predictable. At the same time, technology innovations have changed how media and entertainment is consumed and created new segments and opportunities for growth across the globe.

We know talent and understand the crucial nature of future talent so we can connect the best business leaders with the best companies based on their strengths and assets.

We understand  that our clients "create and distribute" content broadly; thus, our work also includes areas where content intersects with consumer products and video games, technology, retail and licensing, sports and live entertainment, and across all areas of the digital spectrum including online, mobile, eCommerce, social media and ad networks.

HOSPITALITY & LEISURE

As the hospitality and leisure industries battle for consumer spend, executives leading these businesses continue to hunt for strategies that will help give them market edge. Novo’s Hospitality & Leisure team knows that securing the right talent is a critical success factor in this fiercely competitive industry. We also have learned that the future success lies in not just delivering, but developing leaders.

Both consumer and business travel trends are now being defined and tested out in areas beyond the mature markets in Europe and the US, with regions like the Middle East and Southeast Asia at the forefront of those trends. In addition, technology innovation is redefining  how hospitality companies interact with their customers.  

Having worked with some of the most recognizable brands around the world, we have extensive experience helping clients tackle the many critical issues facing today’s talent needs:

  • CRM/database management and segmentation strategy
  • Digital/eCommerce
  • Revenue management
  • Loyalty programs Strategic partnership development
  • Real estate management, acquisitions and development
  • Co-branding initiatives
  • New market entry
  • Strategic sales leadership
  • Food and beverage
  • Spa management
  • Financial officers for global brands across multi-site operations
  • Design and management of operations focused on "Guest Experiences"

Our unique international team and culture gives us a competitive advantage to provide candid, creative leadership counsel in every facet of the hospitality and leisure industry – from hotels and resorts, restaurants, travel services and gaming to car rental, tour operators, online aggregators, cruise lines, airlines, convention and visitor bureaus and other industry-related suppliers and associations.
