Who We Are​

CPG Recruiting Firm

The Grady Group is a nationally recognized, top consumer packaged goods recruiting firm focused on giving small to mid-size companies a competitive edge. Our CPG recruiting focus provides a solution aimed at identifying top talent with proven success in transitioning classic CPG skills into smaller, more nimble environments across all consumer product categories. Only 10-15% of classically trained CPG talent can successfully navigate the transition from larger CPG firms into smaller, more disruptive challenger brands. As a firm , we’ve mastered our ability to facilitate this shift by identifying skilled candidates with the pedigree and entrepreneurial skills required to succeed. With over 500 successful placements since 1999, we have honed our recruitment strategy to an art.

How We Do What We Do​

A Targeted and Person-Based Approach

The Grady Group’s recruitment method is built upon our dedication to our personal relationships with skilled talent already thriving in the CPG industry. Our industry knowledge combined with the strengths of our relationships allow us to maneuver the recruitment process with fluidity. With our targeted and person-based approach to matching candidates with their ideal company, we eliminate the clutter of the conventional hiring process by driving a selection from existing connections, rather than conducting a blind search.

We’ve mastered our CPG recruiting niche by diving deep into the micro divisions within the larger CPG firms. The talent within these smaller incubators is already vetted and inclined towards higher levels of ownership and autonomy than their counterparts who thrive best in larger CPG environments. The candidates we’re sourcing possess sophistication and pedigree combined with a willingness to do what it takes to succeed. There’s an ease with which they balance the strategic needs of the business with the reality of finite resources, and this fuels their motivation. To put it simply, the candidates that we source are the best at what they do, and we’re the best at bringing them to you.

Why We Are Different

Own The Hiring Process

Our hiring solution is designed to put hiring managers in the driver’s seat. We actively engage directly with your competitors’ top talent. Our candidates are currently employed doing what it is that they do best and not actively looking to make a career change. Their skill and experience distinguish them from those applying to your job positions or from someone referred to your company. Many of our placements start with a simple conversation, which leads to an interview, followed by an offer and then an acceptance. Very few people are ‘actively looking’ to make a job change, but most people are receptive if they are specifically approached, and the role makes sense. Our industry knowledge puts candidates at ease, and it gives us the ability to highlight the uniqueness of the role and the overall opportunity for themselves as well as the client companies.
