Do what you love

Our mission at Notogroup is to work with companies that have great cultures, authentic leadership and meaningful career opportunities. At that same time, we model that environment internally.

This Valentine’s Day, we send a love letter to the healthy living sectors we are fortunate to work in – outdoor, active performance, food and beverage, natural products, lifestyle and fashion.

Meredith Morrice: Executive Recruiter

What do you love most about our sectors?
I love outdoor/natural products industry for the people it attracts – incredible individuals who are passionate about being their best self, doing good in the world and encouraging others to do the same. It encourages people to ask why and what if – why do we do what we do, what if we thought about things differently. When you surround yourself with people who challenge themselves and each other, incredible change can happen and that’s what it is all about.

Jackie Miller, Research and Marketing Specialist

What do you love most about our sectors?
The core of the industries we work in focuses on transparency and honesty. In natural products, it’s about knowing what is in the food we eat and the products we’re using, and I love feeling good about the companies we are working with and feeling good about using their products myself. I also love to be outdoors, and it is a dream to work with companies whose products help me get outside.

The sense of satisfaction is amazing when we see our candidates join organizations and help them flourish. Being a part of growing a brand, even from the outside, is rewarding and seeing the brands we have helped by bring great talent be loved by people using their products is one of the things I love the most.

Roy Notowitz, Founder and President

What do you love most about our sectors?
Growing up, I earned my allowance by weeding in the huge organic garden in my back yard. I would take out our compost each night after dinner. My parents were the first people seen ‘jogging’ around our neighborhood in the early 1970’s. We spent weekends as a family hiking, skiing, fishing and camping in upstate NY. I feel fortunate to get to work in an industry filled with great people who have had similar life experiences. It is an exciting time to be part of the industry as healthy, active, and sustainable lifestyles become more mainstream in our society.

What do you love most about working at Notogroup?
There is a high level of accountability, high standards, and commitment to excellence. We all work together and count on each other to succeed. It is not easy to ensure consistent results with hiring, but we have created a formula that works. Also, all the snacks.
