Luxury, Retail, FMCG
Operating at full capacity in the world's luxury-leading countries, including Italy and France, we've established a strategic partnership role for talent selection with the main parent companies in the fashion, luxury, and retail sectors.
Corporate Functions: We have decades of experience in structuring and strengthening teams (often innovation-oriented) in areas like Omnichannel, Marketing, Finance (FP&A, Controlling, Consolidation, Tax, and Treasury), Technology, and their respective leadership roles, both at headquarters and in shared service centers and countries. We also cover the finance area for Operations and Production, where we've gained significant experience in selecting finance business partners and plant controlling profiles.
Retail: We've supported major multinationals in implementing omnichannel strategies, e-commerce, and retail digitalization, focusing on highly specialized roles, including change management (e.g., in retail excellence and performance). We've gained pan-European experience in selecting roles, including commercial and operations in retail, such as store manager, deputy store manager, area manager, and back office manager.
Operations & SCM: Furthermore, we oversee operations, supply chain, and manufacturing, both in relation to innovation areas (like the launch of new IT systems for supply chain topics, enterprise performance management, warehousing, and production) and assisting in the search for more traditional roles in engineering and sectors related to leather goods and footwear. This includes areas of demand planning and process automation.
R&D and Industrialisation: In these latter areas, we have specialized expertise and detailed mappings aimed at niche regional areas with in-depth knowledge of local suppliers and production plants.In these latter areas, we have specialized expertise and detailed mappings aimed at niche regional areas with in-depth knowledge of local suppliers and production plants.
In summary, TAP possesses technical skills, networks, and operational capabilities to support major luxury and retail groups as their primary strategic partner for outsourcing selections. We can also guarantee candidates in our network privileged access to the main players in these sectors at a European level.
On occasion, we've managed selections more focused on real estate, hiring Facility Management and Building Management roles for both corporate headquarters and retail. In the latter area, we've also overseen selections related to procurement for store planning, store design, and the corresponding furnishings for visual merchandising.
