Recruiting Canada’s top talent for over 30 years.
The ability to attract high-level talent is consistently rated as a major contributor to the success of leading organizations worldwide. Sought-after talent is often unaware or uninterested in career advertising, or remains undiscovered by traditional corporate networking. Overcoming this barrier can define an organization’s current and future performance.
The executives you add to your team have the potential to significantly impact your organization’s strategic direction, culture, competitiveness, and performance. Highly qualified managers and executives often ignore career advertising, but respond favourably to an experienced executive search consultant who can engage them in an informative discussion about a new opportunity.

Our experience crosses many roles similar to our private and not for profit search clients, but with many roles and titles unique to the discipline/organization, such as chief administrative officer (CAO), commissioner, chair, general manager, and director.
Our clients have included trade associations, large not-for-profit corporations, charities, and foundations.
To support the selection of short-list candidates or finalists, we offer cost effective and high quality psychometric assessment services delivered by talented and certified assessors experienced in candidate assessment. We offer a range of options appropriate for both executives and managers.
The most common tool we use is a DiSC-based assessment used to analyze behavioral style – the person’s manner of doing things. It measures four dimensions of normal behavior: dominance (how the candidate responds to problems and challenges); influence (how the candidate responds to problems and challenge); steadiness (how the candidate responds to the pace of the environment), and compliance (how the candidate responds to rules and procedures set by others).
Additional assessment options are available through our leadership development practice. Contact us for more information.
Onboarding can be provided with our “First 100 Days” program. This program is delivered by Feldman Daxon consultants and is designed to prepare leaders to be effective in their new roles as quickly as possible. Our executive coaches have expertise working with new leaders to ensure they “hit the ground running” and are set up for success in the critical first 100 days.
