retail headhunters


Barry MindeI founded Barry Minde and Associates in 1992, after working as a consultant for a large international executive search company since 1987. Prior to that, my business career spanned consumer goods marketing and retail buying, encompassing the clothing, home durables, frozen food and kitchenware sectors.

Barry Minde and Associates began as a niche executive search consultancy, specialising in the retail industry. Today, retail still remains our core business, but over the years, we have broadened into related sectors, such as leisure, consumer goods and media.

We focus on finding directors and senior executives, across all major functions, typically in the £50,000 - £250,000 salary spectrum.

Even as our client base has expanded, the company has deliberately retained a lean and tight structure, which ensures that I am personally involved in all aspects of every assignment. I am indebted to the invaluable assistance and support provided by my Associates, comprising a small team of highly skilled, professional and resourceful researchers.

I am an Affiliate Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and a Member of the British Psychological Society.

I genuinely believe that a small but professional specialist executive search consultancy offers real benefits to clients. This is encapsulated by our overall mission, which is not just to satisfy, but to delight our clients by exceeding their expectations in terms of results, service and value for money.
