Areas of Expertise

Retail, Manufacturing, Industrial Services

Whether it be major iconic retailers, specialist boutique operators, franchising groups or online retailers, our team has the experience in understanding not only the variety of industry and organisational challenges but also issues of cultural fit required for an executive to succeed. The fast paced nature of this environment requires a search firm with the capacity to quickly understand the organisational dynamics and to ensure that ‘no stone is left unturned’ in the search for proven or emerging talent.


The Insight Group is also experienced in consulting to the manufacturing sector. From the heaviest, large scale manufacturer, to high technology producers and FMCG companies, we have been involved in a range of strategic executive appointments including CEO/MDs, General Managers, CFOs and Divisional and Functional Heads.


Increasingly the area of Supply Chain and Logistics is a key driver for businesses. Success in the supply chain function can result in industry leadership and consequently executives with a demonstrated track record of results are in high demand. We have worked with a number of organisations and assisted in building their supply chain capabilities in addition to working directly with multi-model and passenger transport operators to appoint senior executives.

“Our goal is simple: It is to add significant value to our clients business through the appointment of outstanding people."

- Peter Nisbet, Director
