Consumer Goods & Services Executive Search Recruiters

The Consumer Goods & Services industry in North America continues to rapidly evolve, influenced by a range of factors such as shifting consumer preferences, changing demographics, and technological advancements embedded into multiple industry facets. Digital transformation is impacting business operations and redefining the relationship between brands and consumers.

The Consumer Goods & Services industry in North America is seeing a significant shift towards sustainability, with many companies investing in eco-friendly packaging, reducing waste, and making efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. This trend is being driven by consumer demand for products that are environmentally responsible, as well as by increased regulatory scrutiny on companies’ environmental practices.

Despite positive trends, the Consumer Goods & Services industry in North America is not without its challenges. Coming out of the tail-end of a global pandemic, companies are pressured with talent requiring more flexible work options. Companies must navigate an increasingly crowded market, and competition is fierce, putting enhanced tension on how companies operate and where they are investing their resources. In addition, rising costs and supply chain disruptions have put pressure on companies to find new ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency.

Technology is becoming ever more present and critical for companies to be competitive. E-commerce has emerged as a key channel for CPG products in North America, with online sales continuing to grow rapidly. Many retailers have invested in their e-commerce capabilities and are partnering with third-party delivery services to ensure speedy and convenient delivery of goods. This has led to a rise in direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands, which have become increasingly popular in recent years.

The Consumer Goods & Services industry in North America is undergoing significant changes, with companies adapting to new consumer preferences, technological advancements, and a growing emphasis on sustainability. The industry is poised for continued growth driven by endemic factors, but companies must be proactive in addressing challenges and staying ahead of the curve to succeed in this dynamic market. Having the right talent in place now and in the future is critical to your success, and we’re committed to this obligation with our valued clients.
