Background & Objectives

Our client is a mid-market private equity fund specialising in FMCG and fashion. They are looking at acquiring a fashion company in Italy that specialises in the women's luxury footwear sector. They are seeking a consultant to help them determine whether it is possible for the Italian manufacturing facility to become a viable and sustainable profit centre under new ownership, as a stand alone business or in joint venture with another manufacturer/ sourcing firm/brand within a defined time-frame and investment. They also want the consultant to identify key execution risks that could materially impact on such a plan.The ideal consultant will have direct operational/manufacturing process expertise at an executive level, with proven experience in the European luxury footwear manufacturing sector (ideally in Italy). Understanding and hands-on experience through the supply chain is preferred. The final deliverable will be a written report, with follow-up discussions with key team members via teleconference as needed. The consultant must be available for a tour of the physical manufacturing site in Northern Italy during the week of 8 June, and may be asked to join a half-day meeting with the company management on 27 or 28 May in Milan. The day rate will be negotiable.
