Versique Launches CPG Division
March 3, 2014 — Versique launched a CPG (consumer packaged goods) division on March 3rd, led by industry veteran, Jennifer Britton. Britton brings more than 16 years of CPG experience, including roles such as vice president of business development and NAM (national account manager), calling on top retailers such as Target, Best Buy, and SuperValu, while working for companies such as Colgate Palmolive, Crayola, and Bristol Meyers Squibb.
“Versique is dedicated to creating the best possible solution for its clients by offering recruiting and consulting services in a broad array of industry-specific practice areas,” said Britton. “I am excited to be a part of a team that hires industry-experienced professionals, and truly partners with clients to bring value to their organizations.”
Britton will lead the new division in building relationships with CPG manufacturers’ account teams who call into Target, Best Buy, and SuperValu in Minnesota. Positions the CPG practice will place include category analysts, category managers, shopper insights, national account managers, supply chain, team leads, and vice president roles. Versique continues to hire field-experienced professionals to lead its practice areas. Britton joins Joe Reardon, managing director of finance & accounting, who comes from a 20-year controller and CFO background. Other division leaders include Chris Peterson, VP of Versique’s online marketing (agency services) division, who has more than 16 years of industry experience; Joe Janasz, practice director of Versique’s IT division, who has more than 20 years of IT recruiting experience; and Chris Dardis, VP of Versique’s HR recruiting division, who previously launched Robert Half International’s HR recruiting division.
“Having worked in the CPG industry calling on buyers at Target, SuperValu, and other retailers, Jennifer adds invaluable experience and credibility to Versique’s client companies in the CPG industry,” said Tony Sorensen, CEO of Versique.
Britton’s 16 years of CPG experience paired with Versique’s 300+ years of executive search and consulting experience create the perfect blend of industry knowledge and strong recruiting expertise. Versique’s CPG team will leverage the company’s database of thousands of qualified CPG candidates, along with Britton’s personal network to bring the best talent in the industry to Versique’s clients.
