Client Case Studies


Managing Director

Founded in 1886, Création Baumann is an independent family-run business focusing on long-term objectives. They manufacture and sell around the world a range of high-quality textiles and fabrics.

They needed to recruit a Managing Director for their UK operation. After a briefing meeting in Switzerland, Beaumont Wood provided a short list from which a successful placement was made.

jab-anstoetz-fabrics logo

Managing Director

As part of a major, international group JAB ANSTOETZ UK market the newest trends from Chivasso, and the latest fabric, flooring and window treatments from the incomparably diverse JAB ANSTOETZ collections.

Beaumont Wood successfully recruited a Managing Director for the UK, having also found various specialist external and internal salespeople over the years.


Sales & Marketing Director

Over 50 years ago, Lionel Hitchen founded a business sourcing, creating, manufacturing, and supplying the finest flavour ingredients.

From a manufacturing base in the UK, they now supply an extensive range of flavours and flavour ingredients to the food and beverage industries around the globe.

Beaumont Wood was asked to recruit a Sales & Marketing Director. Following this successful placement, we have placed several specialist salespeople with this dynamic British company.


Managing Director

James Hardie® makes the world’s highest performance fibre cement cladding, trim, backer board and sheathing products that offer fire, water, weather, pest, and rot resistance.

In 2012 Beaumont Wood was asked to recruit various specialist salespeople for Fermacell, this we did over a period of several years. Subsequently Fermacell was purchased by James Hardie, and we were asked to recruit a new Managing Director for the UK. After an extensive search, the role was filled. Subsequent assignments have included more specialist salespeople – the latest being a timber frame building expert based in Scotland.

Baltic distribution

Operations Director

Established in November 1998 and now part of Bergs Timber AB, Baltic Distribution Ltd operate the Port of Creeksea, on the river Crouch. Here they handle Forest Products, metal and other commodities. The service offered ranges from vessel discharge to inland transportation via our in-house transport division.

Beaumont Wood recruited an Operations Director who then set about transforming the port with substantial investment. This is an example of a “start from scratch” recruitment assignment, as we had no knowledge of the pool of talent required, and thus conducted extensive research in order to successfully fill the vacancy.
