Fashion & Sporting Goods

A passionate, international team of experts securing transformational talent.

We are having to change and adapt at lightning speed.

The challenges and opportunities are many and hugely varied: some seeing sales plummet, and all having to embrace digitisation and offer a strong ecommerce platform. Broader issues such as climate change, warmer winters and a boom in outdoor activity and cycling are all having a fundamental impact on how leaders need to run their businesses. Leadership and talent is vital to the ongoing success of these exciting and hugely diverse sectors.

SRI, doesn’t just have ten years of experience recruiting across fashion & sporting goods, our global collaborative team lives and breathes these industries every day.
