About Us

Since 2009, The Bowerman Group has successfully partnered with emerging and established global companies from the worlds of Men’s and Women’s RTW, accessories, watches, jewelry, home furnishings and beauty to consistently hire difference-making talent.

Our immersive experience within this space situates our team to understand your business needs and the talent that will make the difference as if we’d worked for you for years.

Because we’ve been hiring authorities ourselves, accountable for achieving results just like you, we help you make hires with the same level of detail, care, and scrutiny as if we were hiring for our own team. Due to this consultative and relationship-centric approach, we’re proud to share that repeat business from our clients exceeds 95% of company revenue annually.

Our curated, brand-focused approach in Premium and Luxury brands spreads across Retail, Wholesale, E-Comm, Marketing, and Key Corporate Services in both field and corporate settings.

Each member of our dedicated recruiting team possesses a strong retail or merchant background and anywhere from 5 to 25 years of recruiting success. As a full- service firm, we customize the search experience and tailor our services to fit your exact hiring needs whether they are Contract, Contingency, or Engaged.

“It was a pleasure working with Rob Bowerman and his team on a key search for our retail business. They know the industry well and took the time to understand our unique culture and needs. All candidates presented were qualified and relevant and they continuously adjusted their search focus based on our feedback on early candidates. I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
-General Manager, Retail- Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rob on multiple searches and I have found him to be a superlative recruiting professional. Rob took great lengths to send us candidates who were not only great, but were also great fits for our company and culture. He was with us all the way to the finish line, insuring an excellent result at the end of a thorough process. I hope we continue to grow so that we have the opportunity to work with Rob again in the future. – President, John Matouk & Co.

Rob and his team go the extra mile every step of the way and are so much more than recruiters. They are working to make great, long-lasting connections between candidates and employers. Having worked with dozens of recruiters and agencies, there is no one as thorough, diligent, professional and outstanding as Rob and his team. I am grateful to have been lucky enough to work with them. – District Manager, Michael Kors

I have engaged Rob Bowerman for executive recruiting services for over 10 years. He understands the needs of his clients and has been able to efficiently provide me with a selection of qualified candidates for key retail executive positions …. He is personable and easy to work with. He “gets it” when it comes to finding the right skill set in a candidate as well as making sure there is a good cultural fit. I always highly recommend Rob to my industry colleagues. – President at Mulberry, U.S.A.

I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with Meghan on several occasions while in my last role. Meghan is a true professional, while being incredibly personable, down-to-earth and collaborative. She is a natural relationship builder and quite fun to work with! Once I decided to make a personal career change, Meghan was naturally the first person I reached out to. With her help I secured an exciting opportunity and could not be happier with the end result. – Human Resources Manager at Burberry

I have worked with Rob over many years on both sides of the recruitment process. I have found him and The Bowerman Group to be highly professional and insightful to the needs of the clients. Rob is quite detailed in the search process; which time and again allows for effective matches of both candidates and companies. He is truly engaged in each search and can effectively intuit the core needs of a role. He understands and has a sense for cultural fit. Additionally, Rob possesses a vast network of top tier talent. He and his group have become a top tier go-to resource. – V.P. at Carolina Herrera
