Interim Partners appoints Head of Food & Drink
Jo Sands joins from Odgers Berndtson
Interim Partners, the leading provider of interim managers, has appointed Jo Sands as Head of Food & Drink.
Prior to her appointment at Interim Partners, Jo spent over 4 years at Odgers Berndtson where she built a successful Interim Consumer Practice specialising in FMCG, Consumer Durables and Food and Drink. Before Odgers, Jo was at the boutique procurement recruitment firm Purcon.
Simon Gough, Director of Retail and Consumer at Interim Partners, says: Jo has a wealth of experience within the FMCG sector in placing interims with a broad range of businesses, from FTSE 100 companies to private equity-backed organisations and family-run businesses.
I am sure that she will help to accelerate the growth of our expanding FMCG practice.
Comments Jo Sands: I was attracted to Interim Partners by the strong reputation of its FMCG practice among both interim managers and clients, which is admired in the industry for its responsiveness to clients specific needs.
In particular, its great to be working with Simon Gough, whose name comes up time and again.
I am also looking forward to working with Interim Partners new technology as I have heard from contacts within the industry that their new IP Connect service is a great way to manage the progress of an assignment.
Jo predicts that reduced consumer spending in the UK will shape the demand for interims in the FMCG sector. 
She says: Tighter household budgets and a saturated market means that companies will be looking for marketing interims with a clear track record of making brands stand out against their competitors.
She adds: Companies will also be looking to find new markets for their existing products, so I would expect to see big FMCG businesses looking for UK interims with experience of working in emerging economies where rising incomes create the potential to take Western brand names from imported luxuries to mass market essentials.
