A long standing client of Mandrake recently relocated their head office. In the course of restructuring some of the key areas, a need to hire a head of Marketing was identified.



Marketing & Consumer Insights

Executive Vice President of Marketing

Toronto, ON

Mandrake was asked to search for a new head of Marketing.  As one of the leaders in the Hospitality industry, there were high expectations for top talent.  The company was in a steady state of growth, but felt that they needed to bring in strong leadership with direct category experience.  There was a need to identify what the marketplace offered in terms of candidates and who would be the right fit for their organization.  It was necessary that the Executive Vice President of Marketing had classical consumer training and understood the dynamics of the Hospitality industry.

The strategy was to construct a North American search of individuals from both the Hospitality and Consumer Goods sectors.  

After a successful search of the marketplace, a candidate with both a consumer and hospitality background was identified.   The hire had a great sense of the company and brought immediate value.  This individual has brought great leadership to the company and was instrumental in building one of Canada’s top Hospitality marketing teams.

"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."
