SPIRE EXECUTIVE

A Sourcing & Supply Chain Executive Search Practice Unlike No Other: Relentlessly Measuring The Walk Behind The Talk.

Where Spire Stands Out: We Create Time & Opportunity

Why businesses need more time: When talent and company enter into a hiring journey they begin a path to knowing one another. During a restricted period of inorganic interactions both must attempt to rationalise the potential of a long term partnership. However, the measure of leadership talent cannot be captured adequately in a hiring process alone. The best means of identifying a successful external leader for an organisation is to know the history of the individual.

Time & Opportunity Creator: Spire Executive takes a hiring process beyond inorganic recruitment interactions. By partnering with us, our clients can look into the history and pathway of talent, amplifying their decision making and ultimately their Supply Chain organisation’s performance.

How do we create time & opportunity for sourcing organisations?

  • Our network depth across apparel, footwear, retail and general merchandise supply chains is unmatched. We know individuals far beyond their resume or their linkedIn profile. 
  • We understand the supply chain and corporate contexts in which leaders have performed, questioning whether or not success is replicable within our customer’s environment. 
  • As supply chains continue to endure the strains of the global economy talent needs have shifted, Spire Executive consults firms on their profile of leader helping to shape perceptions successfully.
