Retail, Leisure & Hospitality Executive Search

Top-Performing Leadership for Retail Companies

Consumers drive every element of the retail, leisure and hospitality experience—not only do they decide where to go, what to eat and where to shop, but they also choose when and how to purchase. Then, they share their experiences, good, bad or indifferent on social media. As a result, customers expect more than ever before: higher quality, greater convenience, lowest price and best service, regardless of the channel in which they are shopping.

Retailers and service providers must continuously leverage their talent and customer data to consistently identify and respond to their customers’ future needs. To accomplish this imperative, they must be agile to respond to ever-changing consumer demands. They also need to offer customers relevant, differentiated and personalized experiences that engender loyalty and advocacy. Adding to the complexity, these industries need to do all of this while improving operational efficiency, driving down costs and improving margins.

Despite these nuances, your CBIZ EFL Associates team understands the retail industry is dynamic and consumer-centric, requiring leaders who can adapt to evolving market trends, technologies and consumer behavior. Exceptional leadership is the cornerstone of success in retail. Let us help you find and secure leaders who can thrive in a rapidly evolving omnichannel landscape.
