Track Record

Our track record as consulting firm in the Philippines

We view your hiring concerns with the lens of a Consultant.

One of the country’s leading automotive manufacturers expanded its operations in the country. They needed a strong Vice President for Sales to support the growth. Being a well-established organization, they had very low attrition which also meant that they are not aware of the current landscape of the talent market. Hiring for leadership roles in the Philippines is a seldom occurrence. Their limited experience in executive hiring prompted them to get consulting firms in the Philippines. 

The automotive industry is known to have a shortage of executive talent. Our client was skeptical that we could deliver a good talent. After all, their first consulting firm failed miserably in providing them with a qualified candidate.

With our many years of consulting, headhunter background, and experiences in the Philippines, we were able to prove our track record.  We shared industry insights on the talent market as well as best hiring practices which helped them in their hiring situation. This show of expertise as a consulting firm, led to the decision that favored us. The contract was awarded to us. We continued to map out the industry and scour the scarce talent pool. We advised our clients to align the role they were looking for based on the talent landscape and compensation structure. These insights helped the client come up with an objective decision. They also revisited the job level and offered a more senior role to our successful candidate. 

We work hard to deliver good matches.

Even with various recruitment agencies in the Philippines supporting them, the world’s largest chemical company has struggled. They are struggling to fill a very niche Business Consultant role for their Cement Admixture business unit. With six months wasted and intense pressure from the regional office, as the new consulting firm, we were given the task to turn things around! Our unique and tested search methodology and consulting approach, delivered the right talent and closed the requirement within a month’s time! 

This engagement gave us the big opportunity to be the exclusive consulting firm in the Philippines to handle the hiring for their newly set-up manufacturing plant. We also handled all critical leadership positions for their various business groups.

We represent candidates who produce positive business impact.

Mergers can be very challenging. You always need the right candidate, the candidate that helps to make businesses in the transition succeed. This is the story of our client, the Philippines’ leading manufacturer of high quality sauces and condiments.

After acquiring its main competitor, their Chief Marketing Officer foresaw the potential of the newly acquired brand and planned to capitalize on it. For this to work it was envisioned getting a seasoned brand marketing executive who has the track record in managing a multi billion-business portfolio.

Leading Edge presented a candidate who was currently managing the biggest category of one of the country’s leading food consumer product companies. What ultimately made this candidate quintessential was his strong track record and ascendancy. Through strategic consumer insight and with aggressive marketing campaigns, he was able to reformulate and relaunch brands. This led to achieving double digit profits month-on-month. Eventually, this resulted in bringing his brand to the top spot in its category in the Philippines, beating the long-time champion brand. Currently, this senior marketing executive manages the company’s second-largest portfolio.
