Successful R&D Manager Hire

December 19, 2014 in Recruiting Case Studies


Kinsa Group has focused on recruitment for professional-level positions within the food industry for 29 years.  I thought you might like to hear about a recent successful Research & Development Manager hire Kinsa facilitated…


An aggressively growing company with well-known grocery brands and food manufacturing operations located across the nation received word that their well-respected R&D Manager was leaving the organization, so they reached out to Kinsa.


Over the next two weeks, Kinsa was able to identify local talent from other well-known, major food manufacturers, and the client interviewed 5 local candidates.  Although the hurdle for Kinsa to find a replacement candidate that could live up to the incumbent’s reputation was a challenge, the candidate selected had a wide breadth of product experience, which was very desirable for the current and future status of their product portfolio.  3 days after his interview, the client made an offer and received acceptance.  The entire process was completed within 30 days, and the candidate started employment 2 weeks later.
