The challenge / opportunity
Lallemand is a leading global biotech agribusiness group operating in diverse R&D and technically focussed sectors ranging from bio-ingredients through to the manufacture of animal nutrition products.
To support its growth strategy, Lallemand was seeking a Product and Technical Support Manager to be based at its subsidiary company in New Zealand – but was unsuccessful at filling the role using a local New Zealand-based approach.
Eden Search & Select was engaged on a retained and exclusive basis to run a global search in order to find the right individual with a complex skillset. The requirement was for someone with high-level technical qualifications and the ability to manage a large team and deliver improved commercial results. Lallemand’s ideal outcome was to find a candidate who had UK ruminant experience and a university education to fit with the changing market conditions in New Zealand’s ruminant market.
