Only the best candidates. Personally vetted. Guaranteed.

Talent on Tap for Retail, CPG and the Place-Based Space

The reason top-notch talent is hard to find is because they aren't looking — but that doesn't mean they’re not accessible.

When It comes to finding the best talent, it's not just what you know...it's who you know. And HighStreet happens to know the all-stars in the retail / CPG / place-based CX, digital, design, account leadership and analytics disciplines.

Over the past 20+ years, we've worked with, personally validated and have maintained relationships with the best 5% of talent in our industry. We are now offering access to our Little Black Book of all-stars.

If you need top-notch full-time talent, project-based expertise or simply need some savant-level insights about an elusive prospect or project challenge, our Little Black Book is your secret weapon.

Our Collective is a dream team of people ranges across the following disciplines: strategy, CX, UX, creative, branding, store design, place-based digital, account leadership, measurement/analytics and transformation. These are your future Directors, VPs, SVPs, Partners, and CXOs.

We've also collected big brand, retail and academia insiders that may wish to stay masked to the public but are often times open to sidebar stints.
