Cannabis Executive Recruiters
As the United States seems to be headed toward marijuana legalization in more and more states, entrepreneurial executives in industries like tobacco, beverage, pharma and even luxury retail are eyeing a new industry selling legal cannabis, along with affiliated CBD and hemp products, with billions of dollars of potential upside.
We further have the experience to place the best digital and e-commerce talent in these new vacancies.
Cannabis Industry Recruitment Market
As CBD and hemp are being touted for their healthful and anti-inflammatory properties, executives in the beauty industry are taking note and planning new products to capitalize on this expanding market.
We are finding that top talent in tobacco, luxury retail, and wines and spirits often have the skill set to be extremely successful in the emerging cannabis market.
Companies like British American Tobacco, Philip Morris, Coca-Cola and Anheuser Busch are actively exploring technology and business investments in legal cannabis markets around the world. Our recruiting specialists find that these fledgling companies and operations need executives that have highly transferable skills and can learn and evolve in this highly transformative market. And while our network is rich with talented and versatile executives from the tobacco industry, we expect the legal cannabis market to require talented marketing, sales, operatives executives from a number of complementary industries.
The legal cannabis industry is experiencing tremendous growth. According to Arcview Market Research and its research partner BDS Analytics, spending on legal cannabis worldwide is expected to hit $57 billion by 2027, with North America, where the industry is exploding due legal changes, set to skyrocket from $9.2 billion in 2017 to $47.3 billion in 2027.

What is retained executive search compared to professional recruitment?
Our retained executive search services is a specialized recruitment service that focuses on sourcing and placing high-level management and leadership positions, such as C-suite executives, SVPs and VPs within an organization. In this approach, the hiring company enters into an exclusive agreement with the recruitment firm and pays an upfront retainer fee.
The search process is more thorough and time-intensive, involving extensive research, in-depth candidate assessments, and personalized attention to the client’s needs. Professional recruitment, on the other hand, targets mid-level roles and individual contributor positions within an organization.
The process is typically faster and more streamlined, utilizing also a direct approach of passive candidates, the recruitment firm’s existing candidate network, job advertisements, and other sourcing techniques to find the right candidates. In this scenario, the fee structure is largely based on contingency, meaning most of the fee is due only when a successful placement is made.
