Executive Search

The executive search service offers retained/exclusive recruiting for CEOs and those who report to CEOs. Executive search is a signature offering of Land O’Lakes. With 30 years of actual CEO experience in the retail ag industry, our expert executive search team has a unique advantage in placing executives who distinctively meet the select needs of our owners. Our team understands your business and the ag industry. They also know how to search the field for top talent who have the leadership know-how and strategic-thinking skills to manage your business and build a great future.
The retained executive search practice begins by conferring with you to define the right qualifications of your next leader. Based on your needs, our experts then conduct a professional search process to find the right executive to lead your team.
