Talent Resource Solutions: skip to content


Our retail practice leadership team includes four industry veterans who have built highly successful retail search practices after spending years in the retail world themselves. They lead sizeable fulfillment teams who work across a wide range of functional areas within retail, including product development, fashion and technical design, strategic sourcing, planning and allocation, supply chain and logistics, marketing, merchandising, field operations, e-commerce, and corporate functions such as HR and finance.

Our team has a strong track record of success across a wide range of industry-leading retailers, including specialty stores and boutiques, department stores, and big box discounters. Since 2000, our team has delivered 500+ retail hires (ranging from SVP to individual contributor), all while meeting tight timelines, benchmarks, and diversity requirements.

We have also demonstrated our ability to successfully execute large-scale projects, such as building a planning and allocation department to launch a new system for a specialty retailer, building a centralized merchandising and planning department for a major department store, top-grading a field operations team, and facilitating team integration after acquisitions.

Each member of our retail team shares in the TRS commitment to delivering top talent with a focus on speed, quality, and flawless execution.  In addition to mid-level recruitment, we offer project based recruiting, interim professional staffing, strategic recruitment outsourcing (SRO), and traditional retained executive search.
