IIC Partners Appoints Jean-Marc Danton New Global Leader of its Consumer & Retail Practice Group

LONDON - IIC Partners, one of the world’s largest retained executive search organizations, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jean-Marc Danton as the new global Leader of its Consumer & Retail Practice Group. The appointment is effective immediately.

Mr Jean-Marc Danton, Partner at IIC Partners’ Paris-based member firm Progress, has more than 22 years’ experience in retained executive search in the Consumer & Retail sector. He holds a Masters Degree in Political Science from the Paris Institut d’Etudes Politiques. 

"The Consumer & Retail sector is on the cusp of entering a very exciting and new period. How to address an increasingly digitized world is one of the main issues. The ‘e-utopias’ of a decade ago are now realities and sometimes realities are even more astonishing,” Mr Danton said, adding: "All the interactions with the consumer need to be reconsidered: how to build and to strengthen a brand, how to deal with a new type of multi-channel world (physical retail and e-retail), how to conquer new clients and to develop their loyalty… These are great challenges for the management teams of our clients.

"Great challenges require great talents inside companies in order to tackle them and realise the opportunities that come with them.  IIC Partners as an organization has a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate its ability to bring to light those talents thanks to its global reach and to the entrepreneurial spirit of its members. This specific moment that we are living magnifies my pleasure to have been appointed Global Leader of the Consumer & Retail Practice Group," Mr Danton said.

IIC Partners Board Director, Practice Groups, Scott Doupe said: "I am delighted Jean-Marc has accepted this important leadership role within our organization and I have no doubt his considerable knowledge of the global Consumer & Retail sector will benefit our members as well as our C&R clients.

"I'd like to thank our outgoing Acting Consumer & Retail PG Leader Myriam Walgraef of Hoffman & Associates in Brussels for heading the group in addition to her considerable responsibilities as an IIC Partners’ Board Director," Mr Doupe said.

IIC Partners’ vision is to build on its 25 years of success as the independent retained executive search partnership of choice. Through global reach, industry expertise and local knowledge, IIC Partners is trusted to deliver the highest quality retained executive search services, enabling the continued success of its clients. 
The organization has 52 offices in 37 countries.
