JOB TITLE RECRUITED
Group Logistics Director and various senior roles
Retained executive search
Domino Printing Sciences Plc
“Newman Stewart has the contacts and systems which we don’t have internally, to be able to conduct effective executive search. They screened over 30 candidates to present the best 4 and acted as an extension to our business, constantly updating us on progress, even if there wasn’t any. I had worked with Newman Stewart as a candidate previously and returned to them knowing the exceptional service levels they offered. Newman Stewart reduced the risk for us, helping to build the cultural relationship before the role even begins, to ensure a smooth onboarding process.”

Domino approached Newman Stewart looking to fill a business critical Group Logistics Director role, with responsibility for leading the development and cross functional (group wide) buy-in of a Logistics & Supply Chain strategy, with the customer at its centre. The successful candidate would be expected to drive a group wide, logistics and supply chain strategy to improve customer service, acquisition, adoption and retention, translate organisational goals into meaningful, achievable outcomes that drive value to the customer and business, ensure that all Sourcing, Purchasing and R&D teams understand the benefit of Group Logistics and actively contribute to it, whilst at the same time developing and managing the supply chain and creating a culture of continuous improvement. On top of this, Domino wanted someone with 10 + years’ experience in a senior level logistics or equivalent role. This was high stakes for Domino and needed a considered approach.
Newman Stewart used a combination of approaches including executive search and management selection utilising our large network of logistics professionals.
Since 2013, we have worked with Domino to keep them ahead of the competition through exceptional talent. Roles that have been successfully recruited include European Multi-National Account Manager, Group Sourcing Director and International Trade Compliance Manager.
