Food Manufacturing

GULF STREAM SEARCH is an executive search firm that specializes in the identification, assessment, and capture of top talent in the Food Manufacturing industry.

The type of companies we place highly skilled talent with

Food & Beverage Manufacturers
Food Processors
Consulting firms(ex. product development firms) that specialize in the food industry
Companies that sell into the food manufacturing sector

Within each of these industries, we work very narrow disciplines – the roles that we fill are highly specialized, hard to fill, and talent is hard to find and/or scarce.  Our recruiting and sourcing expertise allows us to dig into each of these segments and uncover the high-impact talent you’re seeking.

The disciplines we’re most asked to conduct searches in

Engineering
Plant Operations
Marketing
Product Development / Research & Development
Quality Assurance / Food Safety
Supply Chain
Mid-to-senior level Sales & Account Management

The candidates we place are highly skilled; in most cases, the individuals we’re working with have grown frustrated with their career development at their current company, or have “run out of meaningful projects” to execute. It happens, and we’re here to help you navigate the next step in your career.

Whether you’re an Engineer with 2-3 years experience or a Plant Manager with 20+ years, we’ll advise you on your career prospects and identify “hidden opportunities” in the market in which you reside or, if you’re open to relocate, we can help you identify a challenging new role in most US cities.

Why do companies work with Gulf Stream Search?

Our clients have recognized that the return on investment for some roles, not all,  is so great that they can’t afford NOT to identify from the best talent available in the marketplace.

The talent we recruit on a daily basis are at the forefront of their discipline.  Most internal recruiting departments can’t expend the effort to stay connected to the top 10% of talent within these areas; most recruiting firms don’t have the talent, skills, or focus to discern between good and great.

That’s why companies come to us for help.

Another reason companies work with us is our speed and national reach; many internal recruiting departments can identify talent for corporate headquarters positions, but Gulf Stream Search is often called in for satellite manufacturing or pilot plant sites where it’s harder to identify and recruit talent.

What companies do you work with?

One of the attributes that our existing clients like about us is our unwavering commitment to discretion and confidentiality.  We feel very strongly that when a recruiter becomes “bigger than the deal” or self-promotes in any way, the search process is compromised.  This is the primary reason why we don’t publicize or share the names of our customer base.

What type of companies do you work with?

Our search fees can range anywhere between $15,000 to $100,000 per placement, paid in a portion up-front(partially or fully retained) or upon placement(contingency).  Most smaller companies(<20 million) find it challenging to commit to that type of investment; those that do however receive the same level of service as a larger client.  We do work with larger, Fortune 500 companies as well, but typically on a limited basis for very hard to fill roles.  Our sweet spot is mid-size, 20 million to 750 million dollar companies that are expanding with aggressive growth plans.
