Canadian Human Capital Services Firm Hires Managing Director
Managing Director, Human Capital Services Firm

We were hired by our client to find an exceptional executive to lead a successful, 60 year old firm to new heights.

Managing Director


Our client was an established boutique with a 60 year history of success. The goal was to find a suitable executive who could build upon that foundation, increase enterprise value and future proof the business. We needed an evolutionary leader who would respect the key existing stakeholder relationships while initiating strategic improvements.

We searched the Canadian marketplace for top leaders in the Human Capital space as well as the broader Professional Services community. Our search yielded a short list of candidates from large and small organizations.

We succeeded in finding an executive who had a strong blend of the desired experience. He had worked in the Human Capital space as a hands-on practitioner, as a leader of teams, and in business development. Importantly, this individual had the ideal Emotional Intelligence that would be essential to succeeding in the role. In a short time he had won the confidence of the key staff, owners, clients and partners.
“Frank is dedicated, very knowledgeable and very service oriented. He went beyond expectations in the consulting input he gave me. I would recommend Frank highly as a search professional.”

"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."
