Wolf Search Solutions Promotes Laura Bonich to Senior Vice President of Recruiting
(Philadelphia, PA) – Wolf Search Solutions, a leading food industry recruiting firm, has expanded its executive leadership team, promoting Laura Bonich, its former Vice President of Recruiting to Senior Vice President of Recruiting.
For over two decades and prior to joining Wolf, Bonich held leadership roles of increased responsibility with Fortune 100 giants as well as small cap entrepreneurial entities: RSI-Burger King’s Purchasing Coop, Kerry Ingredients, Brooks Food Group, H.J. Heinz, Campbell Soup and Buddy Fruits. She is a graduate of Florida International University where she earned her Master of International Business (MIB) and BA in Psychology degrees. Additionally, she earned her culinary certification at the Culinary Institute of America.
Company Founder & CEO, Lisa Wolf, said the promotion will expand the breadth of Wolf’s Executive Search and Emerging Leader Search practices and will allow her to focus on client development, Wolf’s scale-up strategy and new initiatives.
“Laura’s onboarding in 2016 marked a turning point in our growth trajectory. She has played a vital role in the development of our growth agenda and has been a driving force behind critical game-changing initiatives. Over the past two years, we have invested heavy resources in team expansion and development, technology and analytics, process improvement and recruiter training. Our firm grew top-line revenue by 50% in 2018 and 2019 has been all about setting the stage for our next-generation growth.
As a food industry veteran, she brings an impressive track record of strategic, operational and commercial accomplishments. Given the breadth and diversity of her career in the food industry prior to joining Wolf, Laura brings an uncanny ability to deliver on our candidates and clients ROI. I couldn’t be more pleased to make Laura’s appointment to this critical role. She’s the right person to lead the EL team and to execute on our strategic priorities for accelerated growth.”
As Senior Vice President of Recruiting, Bonich will lead Wolf’s recently launched Emerging Leader Search division. Her nationwide team of food industry recruiting experts focus 100% on Manager-to-Director level talent. Additionally, Laura will continue to lead mission-critical Executive Search level assignments, immersing herself in the food industry, partnering with key industry associations, third party consultants and channel partners.
“The decision to create and launch our Emerging Leader Search Team is a game-changer,” says Bonich. “Manager-to-Director level recruiting should be treated as equally as Executive level search. Building the bench for future leaders is a top priority for progressive companies. Our mission is simple – provide the same discerning and disciplined approach to Emerging Leaders as we do in our Executive Search practice. I’m honored and up for the challenge of continuing the industry-recognized, gold-standard legacy Wolf has built over 25 years.”
