Schaffer&Combs places Higg Co’s incoming Vice President, Marketing & Communications and Senior Manager Sales

This May, Schaffer&Combs successfully closed two searches for Higg Co and we would like to extend our congratulations to Del Hudson and Jose Guzzardi, Higg Co’s incoming Vice President, Marketing & Communications and Senior Manager Sales, respectively. 

Higg Co is a technology company that delivers, implements, and supports the Higg Index for consumer goods industries. Developed by our client, the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, the Higg Index is a suite of tools that enables brands, retailers, and facilities of all sizes — at every stage in their sustainability journey — to accurately measure and score a company or product’s sustainability performance. Schaffer&Combs has worked closely with Jason Kibbey and the Higg Co team this past year on various search engagements and we look forward to continued partnerships in the future.

Del Hudson has spent over 20 years in communications and sustainability leadership roles in the US, UK, and New Zealand. Prior to joining the team at Higg Co, Del served as the Head of North America for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and as General Manager of Sustainable Business & Innovation at Nike. 

Del on the search process: “I have to say it was a pleasure to work with James Schaffer and [the Schaffer&Combs] team. From your first approach, through to sharing helpful insight as we wrapped the finer details, this was the most seamless recruitment experience I’ve encountered. I look forward to working with you as we continue to grow the Higg Co team.”

Jose Guzzardi has a background in international public affairs, government relations, corporate sustainability, and compliance management. Prior to joining the team at Higg Co, he served as a Manager for Multinational Strategy & Engagement at B Lab. 

Jose on the search process: “I really appreciated how transparent and direct this whole process has been. It really made me feel much more confident about this decision, and I am really looking forward to joining the Higg team.”

We have enjoyed getting to know both Del and Jose throughout the interview process, and wish them the best of luck and success in their new positions at Higg Co.
