Osakana Consulting, LLC. was established by Taylor Davidson with the sole mission to help small to medium labels and flexible packaging companies scale with competitive sales talent and entrepreneurial-minded executives.

Our Core Values. "Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing." - Theodore Roosevelt.



Preparation is not merely about the practical aspects of our work but also about setting a foundation for ethics and sustainability. For Osakana Consulting, this means fair, transparent, and effective hiring practices that benefit both candidates and companies.



Persistence is not merely about stubbornness or refusal to give up; it's about a deep-seated belief in the value of our work and the goals we aim to achieve. Persistence is understanding that worthwhile results require time, effort, and resilience.



It's about valuing human potential and aligning talents with opportunities in a manner that honors everyone involved. Deep rooted respect promotes a culture of integrity, where actions are taken with consideration for the wider impact on relationships, communities, and industries.

Meet the crew. Our team navigates the industry's depths, combining expertise with passion to deliver unparalleled results.

Before launching Osakana Consulting, Davidson graduated from the State University of New York Maritime College with a Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation, a USCG Unlimited Tonnage Deck License, and dreams of fishing around the world.

Strong family ties and an entrepreneurial spirit encouraged Davidson to return shoreside. With now 5 years experience as an executive recruiter, Davidson is passionate about helping employers find the talent they need and salespeople find the dream careers they deserve.

When he's not introducing packaging and labels companies to their next top producers, Davidson enjoys spending time outdoors chasing yellowfin, pursuing whitetail, and navigating the mountains of the Western US in search of elk.
