A growing plant-based food manufacturer was searching for a Quality Assurance Manager to transform the quality function and provide hands-on leadership to technicians to maintain SQF level 3 certification in their Hayward, CA facility.

The challenge was to find the right individual who could adopt a continuous improvement approach to reducing quality cost without compromising the quality culture. The ideal candidate needed to be a critical thinker who would proactively improve the quality function of the company through internal audits, participation in process improvement programs, and interaction with key partners to obtain constructive feedback.

3P Partners concluded the search within one month and the new candidate started within six weeks. This candidate had a strong background in quality and systems improvement, was local to the area, and a huge fan of the company’s plant-based products.
