Bowery Farming was looking for a strategic Head of Sales who could scale the CPG line within retail. The company wanted someone based in New York who was classically trained in consumer products but was adaptable to high growth stage. With a C-suite executive group already in place, they had a high caliber for expectations and talent. It was critically important for this incoming hire to align with the team’s mission-driven values and purpose and to believe in what they were doing. Ideally, they wanted someone who would be as disruptive as the company’s mission.
