Growing International Manufacturer of Floorcare Products needs General Manager for North America; Genesis delivers

Client :

A well-established, yet consistently growing manufacturer of floorcare products with a unique, inspirational history and strong leadership, this client has a great opportunity for global expansion.

Background :

Due to a strong ambition for exemplary growth, our client’s founder and CEO decided a change was needed at the General Manager level of their North American operations. Considering this position was already staffed, a search for a replacement needed to be conducted with discretion and utter confidentiality. Given the integral nature of the position, there was also no room for error.

To facilitate immediate growth, the hire needed to be someone that was keenly connected to the largest stores in the United States.   This required someone that had a sales and marketing leadership background with a large company, yet was not fearful of getting their hands dirty and working with a very lean team.   Our client needed someone that, as the company grew, would have the patience to train certain key individuals into roles that they had not yet mastered.

Solution :

Genesis Search Group leveraged our robust executive network in the most confidential manner. With succinct, targeted communications, we identified and delivered an individual running a one billion dollar segment of a much larger business.

Since Genesis completed this hire, our client’s North American business is growing nicely. Since his on-boarding, The General Manager has turned to Genesis to hire a National Account Manager, Digital Marketing Manager, and many more quality hires to come.
