The Challenge

The Solution

As part of this aggressive growth strategy, the businesses Global CEO retained Cesium Group to support with overhauling the two key in-market RTM businesses, namely the USA and the UK. Focusing initially on the UK, the Cesium Group conducted an extensive UK wide executive search to hire a Managing Director before turning out attention to the board managing searches for a Head of Finance and Head of Marketing.  

Shifting our focus to the businesses biggest single market, the USA Cesium Group delivered an extremely comprehensive, coast to coast search of all US-centric wine producers and distributors to secure a high calibre CEO and EVP Marketing to lead the businesses next growth phase for the US market.
