Chief Executive Officer | Portfolio Company of Family Holding Group


Background

United under the umbrella of an internationally active family holding group, our client coordinated seven independent companies that produced and marketed high-quality food products and were considered major players. Originating from what was once Europe’s largest sugar refinery, the focus of the Group’s products had been mainly confectionary and market niches. The core objective of the family holding group was to develop their company brands, expand their market position and achieve sustainable growth.


The Need

Over time, one of the portfolio companies had lost world market leadership in its niche market. The former competitive advantage regarding production technology, was no longer present due to new technological developments which changed market needs significantly. Our client was looking for a game-changing CEO with a strong track record, great leadership skills and a strong attention to detail.
