Executive search firm Veredus has launched a consumer practice with the acquisition of Sarah-Jayne Bennell (pictured) to head up the team as director and global head of Consumer for the company worldwide.
The Veredus Consumer Practice intends to support businesses in building their creative, product development, marketing, omnichannel and Head Office teams, as well as key board and non-executive level appointments.
“Joining a business which is part of major FTSE 100 firm Capita PLC provides a fantastic chance and will enable us to create a best-in-class consumer business and indeed contribute to Veredus’s position as a top-tier contender in the executive search space,” Bennell said. “I look forward to a very exciting future in building the offering to our clients from a global perspective.”
Jerry Gray, managing director at Veredus, added: “This is an important piece in our plan to continue our growth in the private sector by hiring in real specialists who talk the clients’ language and understand their business and market issues. Sarah-Jayne knows the consumer and retail space intimately and her long-established, existing clients talk about her professionalism, knowledge, network and commitment.”
