Natural Products Industry - Recruitment Case Study - VP Quality
The Nutrition and Natural Products division of Sanford Rose Associates provides executive search and recruitment solutions for companies in the Consumer Health & Wellness sector. We work large multi-national companies, midsize firms as well as early stage start-ups.
We are pleased to announce the completion of a search for Vice President Quality.
Our client, a contract manufacturer in the OTC and dietary supplements industry, requested our assistance in hiring a Vice President Quality. This executive would be in charge of both Quality Assurance and Quality Control and had to have prior quality management experience within the pharmaceutical, OTC and dietary supplement industries.
The biggest challenge of the search was identifying candidates who were willing to relocate to the west coast. Fortunately, the hiring organization offered a competitive compensation and relocation package.
Four weeks after the search began, we presented a slate of four qualified quality executives to the COO. Interviews took 3 weeks and the final candidate was offered and accepted the position during the eighth week of the search.
