High-end food ingredients business retains Drayton Partners

Ambitious, premium food ingredients business appoints Drayton Partners to secure new Commercial Director

Drayton has been appointed as the retained executive search partner by a highly entrepreneurial, rapidly growing food business. This business has become the leading player within its niche category and is respected for its focus on product innovation, customer-centricity and high quality.

Rob Seery, Partner, commented:

"It is a fascinating period for this business as the founders seek to carefully step back from the hour-by-hour management, facilitated through the recruitment of a high quality leadership team. The Commercial Director will operate as a full Board member and take responsibility for the sales function, growing their business with both food manufacturers but also the mid to higher-end restaurant and FTG chains. In the longer term it is the ambition of the owners that the Commercial Director will step up to MD".
