CEO | Consumer Packaged Goods | New York, NY
Our client is a unique and widely known branded consumer packaged goods company with a well-established but somewhat neglected brand in a niche, special value consumer products segment. A broad product offering is sold through mainstream and specialty retail channels.
We are seeking a Chief Executive Officer with strong branded sales and product marketing experience to revitalize and grow the business under new financial sponsorship. You will be an experienced business leader in the CPG field with an appetite to grow a company and share in the ownership of the business. Ideally your background will include marketing and sales leadership experiences in both large multinational CPG and middle market or privately held companies. Background in soft goods, health & beauty, personal care or food will be of particular interest, even more so if there has been an emphasis in “green” or environmentally responsive values.
This is a challenging and rewarding growth opportunity working with a substantial financial sponsor and board to take an already successful brand with true cache in the market and grow it to the next level.
Competitive base salary and bonus incentive is offered along with an opportunity for equity in the enterprise.
First Creative Capital | Financial Services | New York, NY
First Creative Capital is looking for CEO candidates from the commercial/merchant or investment banking community to be considered for our intellectual property advisory company. Principals and executives from other non-bank financial services institutions including media or hedge funds, financial advisory or management companies would also be considered. Strong banking experience as a standing CEO with bottom line responsibility for running a financial institution with assets of approximately $1 Billion for at least 4-5 years is requested.
Seasoned experience raising capital is required. The candidate should have excellent credit and risk assessment experience, with a working understanding of the financial issues pertaining to our defined target community of companies and individual that produce and monetize intellectual property assets.
In the alternative, the candidate should have a long-standing career as a principal, or senior financial executive working within the entertainment, media, publishing, advertising, or design industries where intellectual properties in the form of patents, copyrights, trademarks, brand equity, and royalty/licensing revenues have been the core revenue sources from the business activities of the company.
Our feeling is that while preferred, it will be harder to find candidates with deep commercial banking and IP experience in one person. Since we have an excellent team of IP experts developing, we would be comfortable to identify someone with excellent commercial or merchant banking experience who is an “open architecture” executive, able to listen to, learn from and work with First Creative Capital’s IP experts.
