SILVIO ROSSI

Vice President

Supply Chain, Logistics & Operations

As a 30-year veteran, Silvio operates exclusively in supply chain management and operations. He invests significant time understanding the company’s culture and values.

He believes it’s not just about the end result but also educating, consulting and building a trusted and respectful relationship with both clients and candidates.

More About Silvio

A five-time winner of Fulcrum Search Science Inc.’s Consultant of the Year award, Silvio has a passion for helping his clients build their leadership teams in Supply Chain, Logistics and Operations. With over 30 years of search experience and literally thousands of industry contacts, he loves the challenge of finding, assessing and securing the “needle in the haystack” candidate. His client base covers a wide range of industries, including consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, industrial chemicals, industrial distributors and logistics and supply chain providers.

Silvio’s approach to executive search is to offer a comprehensive end-to-end solution. He takes the time up front to really get to know his clients, their environment, their culture, and their challenges. This results in a much more targeted search, and a much deeper assessment of candidates. In the search phase, Silvio is able to access the hidden talent pool of inactive candidates not on the market because of his deep industry contacts. In the assessment phase, Silvio is able to better match candidate to opportunity, not just resume to job spec., because of his thorough “insider knowledge”.

Silvio has a zest for life. He enjoys family activities, travel, and getaways with his many lifelong friends. With a near photographic memory, Silvio loves talking about movies, sports, and business. A“foodie” at heart, he looks after himself well with an active lifestyle.

Silvio is always a pleasure to work with. I usually call him with complicated and niche recruiting requirements, and he never disappoints! He works in a highly ethical manner, treating both client and candidate with the utmost respect and understanding. Silvio listens well to his client’s needs, considers his options carefully, and only presents the best candidates, who fit both technically and culturally to my organization. In addition, Silvio is lovely to work with – friendly and funny, and he builds strong, long-lasting relationships with both clients and candidates.

Silvio, you are like the heart doctor that no one wants to visit, but when I do, I know that you will fix my recruitment issue and get me the right person without having me to rehire or worry about that specific role in supply chain for a long time!
