Canadian Manufacturer Hires Manager, Tax & Audit
Manager, Tax & Audit

We were retained by our client to find an accountant who loved doing audit-and tax.

Finance & Accounting

Manager, Tax & Audit


Our client, a unique Canadian success story and a well-known brand, unexpectedly lost their valued Manager, Tax & Audit. This resulted in a big hole in a lean head office team.

We searched the Sothern Ontario marketplace for top talent. Our strategy included targeting potential candidates in public practice as well as industry.

We found a solid short list of possibilities. The winning candidate had the requisite professional designations that that one would expect (CGA and several specialized designations in the field) plus an MBA. His work experience was varied and relevant and demonstrated a strong track record of making a difference. In addition he had the essential soft skills needed to integrate into the organization smoothly, gain credibility quickly and get traction swiftly.

"We enjoyed Frank's professional approach to our candidate search and his friendly nudges to keep the process moving along if we were falling behind in the project. I'd definitely recommend Frank."
CFO, Canadian Manufacturer

"Stefan is not only an Executive Consultant with a track record of few hundred completed C-level searches, but the CEO of one of Canadian's best Executive Search and HR Consultancy firm. He is a strategic advisor to numerous senior level executives (Supervisory Boards and Board of Directors) as well as a coach and mentor to many professionals. His entrepreneurship experiences, abilities and achievements are both well recognized and appreciated by world's known YPO. He is a person one can trust, rely on, expect that he would deliver, enjoy his companion and sense a of humor, admire his wisdom and values, and respect him for what he stands for both as his family is concerned and the business he runs. What is quite unique about him is that being extremely blessed to be successful, he constantly remembers about those less fortunate and in need. He is an initiator of many undertakings to raise money, support and help others financially. One of the few ones that I would dream to work with if I had a chance to. Without any hesitation I would encourage any of my Clients to work with Stefan in Canada."
