Plastic Executive Recruiters

President – Partner – Entrepreneur

SALARY:  $130,000 – $170,000

I’m working with a fantastic company owner that is looking for a super high energy, self-driven manager to be his partner in the business.  You can buy into the company when you start at a small or significant level, or you can earn stock on an annual basis.  

We are looking for someone who will drive growth in this small business, as well as manage operations.  You will run this business as if it were their own (well, because it is), and if you do a good job, won’t talk to the owner more than once or twice per month for financial reviews.  

Over time, you will increase your ownership via the stock ownership program, and will have the opportunity to purchase the company at some point in the future, or have a cash windfall when the business sells.

Additionally, the owner of the company is continuing to acquire additional companies on an ongoing basis, and it’s possible that you will have the opportunity to buy into other companies and run multiple operations as well. 

The ideal candidate will be very entrepreneurial, and will probably have owned their own company at one time.  We are looking for well-rounded experience in all areas of business management, including Sales Management, Business Development and Operations Management experience in the plastics market.  


  • OWNERSHIP POSSIBLE: You can buy in at the outset, or earn ownership in the bonus program, with the possibility of buying the entire company someday.
  • GREAT PEOPLE: Great team of people and a great owner to work with. 
  • MANAGEMENT PHILOSOPHY of respect and professionalism.  Overall guiding principles of “doing what is right”, reduce, reuse, recycle, and safety are of paramount importance. 
  • EXECUTIVE EXPOSURE:  You will be a key component of the Owner’s executive team.
  • AUTHORITY TO IMPACT the organization.  Your leadership will influence the direction, culture and growth of the organization.  In fact, ensuring a team-based, servant leadership culture is paramount in importance.
  • UNTAPPED POTENTIAL:  Though established and profitable, there is a mountain of untapped potential out there.  With your leadership, amazing growth is possible.
  • LARGE RESPONSIBILITY:  You will be responsible for all sales and operations. 
  • GREAT PLANT AND OFFICE:  Very nice place to work.
