LUXURY & Retail sector

DIGITAL - HOSPITALITY - FASHION

We have a truly global reach, finding candidates for roles based in Europe, the UK, USA and Asia.

Initiating our journey in 2008, Muller and Associates ventured into the global luxury and retail industry. We brought a broader perspective from having worked outside the industry and this provided valuable perspective: Luxury retail can be a closed and somewhat incestuous industry that recycles the same candidates from fashion house to fashion house. We have sourced talent for our retail clients from completely untapped industries such as banking, telecoms, FMCG and hospitality, while also providing them with the best from within the luxury industry when necessary. We bring exceptional retail talent into our client’s organisations and successfully help integrate new faces that have thrived in this exciting industry. Recognizing the digital revolution that defines 2023, we’re also at the forefront of connecting our clients with the tech-savvy minds they need to thrive in this era.

We’ve successfully filled roles spanning Europe, the UK, USA, and various Asian regions — including Hong Kong, China, Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.

Delving deep into the nuances of both fast fashion and luxury realms, we’re adept at discerning the diverse corporate cultures, whether it’s expansive listed fashion conglomerates or intimate family-owned ventures.

Our expertise shines in understanding consumer trends, digital innovation, and millennial engagement within the retail and luxury segments. From Customer Insight and eCommerce to marketing and clientele roles, our clients entrust us with their pivotal positions.

We have extended our consumer reach to the high-end hotel and food services industries. We have helped them find tech savvy strategic leaders — an essential asset in today’s fiercely competitive market landscape.

Healthcare Industry

HEALTH TECH - HEALTHCARE PROVISION - HEALTH INSURANCE

We are optimistic about the immense potential that the Healthcare Industry industry holds, both in the USA and globally.

For over a year, Muller and Associates have been immersed in the Healthcare Industry, spanning both the USA and international territories.

Our expertise lies in identifying transformative C-suite talents, particularly within the Payer (Health Insurance) and Health Provider sectors. We have worked numerous sectors of the Healthcare Industry, particularly Health Tech, Healthcare Provision, Health Insurance, and Pet Health Insurance.  Through our endeavours, it’s become clear that today’s healthcare landscape urgently demands visionary leadership. These are leaders adept at navigating the changing geo-political terrains in regions such as the USA, Europe, and Latin America.

Throughout our journey, we’ve been exposed to an extraordinary pool of talent—many of whom are esteemed physicians. These professionals have ventured into the dynamic world of startups, offering innovative health solutions. From physical health services to cutting-edge data and technology assistance for payers and providers, they empower consumers with diverse options. This spans a broad spectrum of health needs, including dental and specialized services.

We are optimistic about the immense potential this industry holds. Muller and Associates is committed to expanding our reach, aiming to serve more companies globally.

Alcoholic Beverage Industry

SPRITS - WINE - CHAMPAGNE

Shedding light on untapped leadership opportunities in the Alcoholic Beverage Industry.

Muller and Associates’ deep expertise in consumer specialization naturally led us to the intricate and ever-changing world of the alcoholic beverage industry. While our involvement in emerging industries often revolves around identifying the ideal leadership, the alcoholic sector presents its unique nuances. Although many default to seeking talent from the consumer packaged goods domain, we recognize the stark contrasts between, for instance, marketing wine and a premium vodka.

Muller and Associates are proud to have brought a more lateral view as to what works in this business and the untapped opportunities for leadership talent. Especially in the realm of joint ventures, we’ve observed frequent failures — with leaders often chosen for wrong reasons. This industry, teeming with potential, stands to benefit significantly from our value-driven approach.

Sectors we have worked in include:

  • C-Suite Commercial Distribution: Spirits, Wine, and Champagne.
  • C-Suite Leadership in Still Wines and Champagne.
  • CEO for JV with Celebrity Partnerships.
  • CEO of Brands/Maisons.
