Food & Agriculture Industry Executive Recruitment

Continuing to sustainably feed an ever-growing population is one of the highest-level  challenges that today’s big thinkers in agriculture have to solve. In the food and agribusiness industries, executive recruiters need to be able to supply decision makers to companies who come with an awareness of issues and problem-solving strategies for production efficiency, sustainability, and resilience in agriculture.

Trusting headhunters to provide executive search services saves you time and money. Instead of hiring full-time employees you may or may not trust to yield profitable results, onboard a qualified consultant with the help of a recruiter. Consultants are skilled in transforming companies for the better – and know how to do it quickly and effectively. Add financial and organizational value to companies through the following services:

  • Local-to-Global Sustainability

    Agribusiness must catch up with recent and rapid globalization in food processing, packaging, waste control, and disposal of waste and by-products.

  • Massive-Scale Delivery

    Population growth will force food delivery systems to become robust enough to ship food virtually anywhere to feed a global population.

  • Production Efficiency

    Producing more while consuming less nets a universally better bottom line while helping to preserve fertile growth areas for continued agricultural success.

Businesses operating within the food  and agriculture industries will require executive search experts who can efficiently identify experienced and capable top-level decision makers with highly specialized agricultural knowledge.

CFR Global Executive  Search Approach to the Food & Agribusiness Industries

As a talent and consulting services leader among  agriculture recruitment agencies, the CFR Global Executive Search approach is a constant evolution. We examine the most pressing issues in food production and set them against economic and business-level challenges to find executives prepared to deliver robustly constructed strategies.

Our food and agriculture industry  headhunters seek for executives with the skills to:


Assessment is of particular importance in agribusiness; because of the complexity of food production and delivery systems, executives must be skilled at quickly learning how those systems work together to simultaneously drive business success and address global-level agribusiness challenges.


Part of the improvement process in the food industry is ensuring that everyone from top to bottom is performing at their peak within the organization. Adept executives will make the most of available resources through carefully considered and executed internal organization.


Because growing and delivering food globally is so demanding, and because natural resources are dwindling, agribusiness must generate consistent and top-level productivity from its employees through highly competitive rewards and benefits systems.


The most capable leaders are also teachers; they will continually pass on valuable leadership and other universal skills to people within their organizations. Through doing so, they will develop systems of succession and create methodologies for ongoing success.
