Consumer Products & Services

Unparalleled Access to a New Generation of Leadership.

Disruption isn’t just about technology – consumer branded companies are innovating to bring convenience and control back to the consumer in ways unimagined as recently as five years ago. The velocity of change in consumer behaviors and trends is fragmenting the singular notion of The Consumer, and companies need to be faster and nimbler than ever before.

The demands of leadership in Consumer Products and Services have changed too – a new generation of leaders has emerged who run ahead of the trend, who operate ahead of the trend, who operate with more granularity and relates a vision informed by the unparalleled real-time, two-way communication that exists between the best companies and today’s consumers. With decades of experience serving the top brands in consumer products, Ventura Partners provides unparalleled access to this unique pool of exceptional talent. With us, you’re assured of the best result when you’re searching for a visionary leader to lift your company to new heights.

We are Ventura – your partners in leadership.
