Large and Small
In addition to working with larger wine companies, a high percentage of our general management searches are conducted on behalf of smaller wine producers. Beyond relieving the owner of day-to-day responsibilities, the right manager can add to the strategic resources of the winery. These searches are critical to the future success of our clients.
Prior success is a good indicator of future performance. In addition to focusing on individuals who have "been there and done that," we also interview candidates who have been successful in similar positions, but who currently lack a general management title.
The Right Fit
Personality fit is a critical factor in a general management search. Ideally, the candidate hired will represent all that the winery stands for both internally and to the consumer. A shared vision of the future is vital. To ensure this, Benchmark goes to great lengths to understand the client's vision and management style before launching the search.
Experience and Reputation
Our knowledge and reputation in the wine business and related industries (luxury goods, beverage and consumer products) enables us to find extraordinarily talented and motivated individuals for our clients.
