Melding technology and tradition, Braxton’s ideas are born and fermented. Braxton Brewing Company offers craft beer serving rotating seasonal brews & house-roasted coffees in industrial surrounds. Braxton’s spirit remains in and out of the garage, brewing beer that inspires them to lift one to life. Braxton fell in love with the craft of brewing beer and built a home brewery in the family garage, where the entire family is helping with the mission.
Braxton has seen tremendous growth over the past few years, doubling its revenue last year alone. It was time to reevaluate certain aspects of the business, specifically their talent, as they continued to scale.
Braxton needed to find a strong COO that would help them integrate their internal teams to unify and push everyone towards one common goal and to streamline the entire business process.
We knew this could be a difficult role to fill as there are certain criteria that matter immensely to Braxton and really needed to find the perfect fit.
Braxton’s Founder had a great relationship with Hunt Club for several years and knew they would be the perfect fit for when they are ready to fundamentally change their business and elevate their leadership team.
Hunt Club’s talent strategist team quickly sourced and identified 65 pre-vetted candidates with strong operational experience as well as leading family-run businesses since this is extremely important to Braxton. We leveraged our extensive expert network in Cincinnati to identify the best candidates to present.
We presented four rock star candidates, three of which came from Hunt Club’s expert network. They interviewed all four and hired one, who is a perfect fit. The entire search was done in 28 days, exceeding all expectations!
“We’ve known about Hunt Club for a few years and we were excited to finally partner with them on our COO role. Hunt Club has a massive network in Cincinnati and it was incredible to be able to tap into that. They brought us talent we would never have found on our own.
The Hunt Club team was exceptional - they were extremely efficient and turned things around so quickly that we were able to get this role placed in 28 days! The process and results really exceeded our expectations.” - Jake Rouse, Founder at Braxton Brewing Company
