Specialized CPG, B2B and Digital Analytics Talent
Executive Recruiter Ben Foster (PHR) has internally served within talent acquisition at Land O’Lakes, Wells Fargo and ECOLAB. Prior to 4SIGHT, Mr. Foster was a record-setting producer at Celarity, Minnesota’s longest-standing marketing recruitment firm. He has twice split recruiting and marketing chairs in both the consulting firm and Fortune 500 sectors, executing within the corporate marketing function.
As Ben notes: “I approach every search – contingent or retained – with as much care and urgency as hiring my own teammates. I know the marketing function deeply, and I assess how well my candidates have capitalized on their customer knowledge; their ability to drive the business; and their personal character.”
Mr. Foster has experience leading strategic recruitment amidst M&A ventures, business and product launches, enterprise software implementations, organic growth, COE formulations and unexpected attrition. International experience includes APAC, EMEA, Latin America and Canada. Ben holds active PHR (Professional of Human Resources) certification from HRCI, and active CSP (Certified Staffing Professional) accreditation from the American Staffing Association. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Colorado, and has completed additional Master’s-level coursework in Rhetoric & Technical Communication from the University of Minnesota.

“We retained Ben for a search after failing to find a good candidate for a Marketing role. His biggest asset was his ability to understand our unique needs and match them to the right candidate. I consider Ben a great asset and wouldn’t hesitate to use him for future searches.”
“Ben’s approach is very refreshing, and he really is a true partner.”
“We just did a postmortem analysis of the recruits Ben brought onboard, and all of them are either fully contributing or exceeding expectations.”
