Argentus is working with one of our longstanding Retail clients on another strategic Procurement search! This organization is one of the most established industry leaders in Canada, known for their supply chain innovation and exceptional customer service. Today, they’re looking for a Senior Manager, Global Product Sourcing!
This individual will work remotely to support the company’s office in the Greater Toronto Area (with travel to locations in Toronto, so a candidate in the GTA is preferred). As a Senior Manager, Global Product Sourcing, this individual will have a high-level mandate to drive company growth through strategic sourcing and private brand product development. This role will drive the development of new private label brands for the company, through sourcing activities from a variety of global suppliers. Using a strong understanding of procurement’s role in product development, the successful candidate for this role will lead the sourcing team to drive the growth for private brands through finding new sources of supply, mitigating costs, and finding opportunities for innovation and brand development. With a deep knowledge of merchandising trends, processes and best practices, this individual will act as a key subject matter leader for Asian, European, Latin American and other global sourcing offices to help drive continuous improvement and brand growth, while contributing to the overall sourcing strategy for the company. In addition, the successful candidate will develop and purchase all ancillary products associated with new product introductions, including packaging, point of purchase, and other supporting commodities. This role has a strong people management component, as the successful candidate will be tasked with leading, coaching and mentoring their sourcing team, with a mandate to improve performance and consistently upskill them to a best-in-class function within the organization.
In summary, this is an impactful leadership role for someone with a considerable Retail sourcing (goods-for-resale) and product development (private label) background. Our client is looking for individuals with at least 8 years of direct Retail sourcing experience, particularly within global sourcing, for a large organization. They’re looking for someone located in the GTA who has successfully led teams to success, and who has the business acumen to present to, and win engagement with, senior business leadership.
