Boyden Executive Search

Retail & Apparel

Consumers demand a seamless shopping experience – across screens, in-store and on their mobile devices. Talent needs in this industry are more complex than ever before.

We connect our clients with innovative business leaders and corporate functional experts in:

Driving traffic to a store, website or app, managing a consistent brand, creating a pleasing end-to-end consumer experience, keeping shopper data safe and secure, offering the right product mix at the right price – all of these have become increasingly complex in this globally competitive, omni-channel industry.

Leaders with both traditional and omni-channel experience and innovative approaches are in high demand. In addition, luxury leaders able to provide an improved total experience are valuable in an environment where personalised online experiences raise customer expectations in-store.

Cost efficiencies are increasingly driven by big data, with analysis of consumer behaviour enabling more precise resource allocation. The success of mobile technologies is driving the need for app developers and social media managers, while companies create more innovative cultures in response to rapidly changing markets.  

We provide cross-sector and functional expertise to client organizations (public, private & private equity) in developed, fast growth and frontier markets. We bring a flexible, more creative mindset to retail businesses seeking transformational leaders who can motivate diverse teams to achieve their goals.
