Production and Processing Recruiting

Delivering great talent for meat and poultry producers and processors

Since 2011, our team has excelled in filling vital roles within integrated pork and poultry companies’ live production and processing sectors and supporting growers and packers. We attribute our success to the expertise of our division manager, Jim Hipskind, CPC, who has over 30 years of valuable recruiting experience. Jim has successfully placed candidates ranging from individual contributors to Vice Presidents, from small-scale growers to the largest producers and packers in the USA. His extensive knowledge encompasses various areas, including General Management, Operations, Quality, Process Engineering, Maintenance, Transportation, EHS, and Live Production.

In 2022, we proudly promoted Maria Codilla to the position of Practice Manager for Live Production. Initially specializing in the swine industry, Maria quickly established herself as a successful partner for producers and genetics companies. Building on her accomplishments, Maria expanded her clientele to include the poultry production sector in mid-2023. This expansion reflects her dedication and ability to adapt her expertise across multiple domains, ensuring our clients receive comprehensive and tailored support in their respective industries.

In 2024, we added cheese processing to our practice and are recruiting Plant Managers, Production Supervisors/Managers, Quality Assurance Managers, Packaging Supervisors, Storage Supervisors, Maintenance Managers, Sanitation Managers and Cleaning Supervisors, Engineering and Environmental Compliance Managers, and Human Resource Managers. Rick Pascual is leading this team.

Maria joined as Content Manager in 2016, promoted to Talent Scout for dairy nutrition. After 5 years, she became Practice Manager for Live Production in August 2022.
