Welcome to Mandrake
Our Expertise
General Management

A General Manager (GM) is an individual who has significant cross-functional expertise and P&L responsibility for an organization or a division. Typically, this means that they oversee the sales, marketing and operations functions of the organization or division that they manage. They may also be responsible for other functional areas such as human resources and finance. Whether they run a private small-medium enterprise or a subsidiary of a larger, perhaps even multi-national corporation, they require a broad range of business skills, understanding and experience as they are called on to make significant organizational decisions. This profile of responsibilities may also be found in the titles of President or CEO, depending on the organization.

Mandrake consultants are well-connected to top general management talent in diverse industries. They are highly experienced in identifying and recruiting exceptional GMs with the objective of making an impact in their clients’ organizations.
