Profit driven enterprise requiring a personal touch
Private equity firm that needs to grow beyond your network
In-house talent acquisition overwhelmed by high demands
Executive search firm that needs help managing workload

We placed a Partner at one of the big 4 global consulting firms to head their National Customer Experience practice. The client wanted a thought leader to drive development of their customer experience practice, working with their large corporate clients to drive transformation of legacy corporate structures to meet the needs of digital consumers.
With significant private equity funding our client was looking for a top tier Chief Product Officer to join their team. After our initial research and outsourcing our market research and feedback discovered that the title was misaligned with what the role needed. We were able to work quickly with our client to recalibrate the role and recast it as a Chief Technology officer which was much more indicative of the scope of the mandate and resulted in the best hire.
Our client was changing their entire business model and looking to develop three distinct practices under the umbrella of their current structure. They were also looking to round out the Executive team with a female – a common challenge and subsequent opportunity, in the technology sector. We placed a leading female candidate from the banking software landscape who had both enterprise experience as well as an entrepreneurial drive which is exactly the candidate profile they were looking for.
Our client, a decades old, leading technology company HQ’d in Toronto was looking for their first female executive hire in the history of the organization. They also needed to be a skilled operator in the IT sector and bring fresh ideas to a company hungry to modernize their mandate. In a limited pool we were able to present an A-list of female candidates resulting in a successful hire.
Global Manufacturing Company
A well-established, large manufacturing company, HQ’d in Toronto, with operations in the US, Europe and Asia, launched a search for a CIO shortly before Covid. Prior to shut down we had a slate of solid IT candidates matching the requisite leadership and skill profile. The search was paused for several months and upon resuming, the company made a conscious decision to diversify the talent pool – we relaunched the search and presented the client with a diverse slate of candidates, in a limited candidate pool, resulting in a successful hire.
New start-up, portfolio company of a major Canadian PE firm
The PE firm approached us to build the executive team for a newly launched, roll-up within the healthcare/wellness space. Given the recent inception of the company, with no previous customers, candidates had to join the company based on trust in the President and the PE firm. All roles were successfully filled with a diverse candidate slate.
