We have a lot to say about how we solve our client's problems. We have completed hundreds of critically important searches. All of which are equally important to the long term success of our clients. We are proud of our track record. There are many specific example where we likely solved the exact same problems you are facing. Often, the problems we solve are new and require creative and innovative approaches. Either way, we get it done. Obviously we use discretion and keep many details confidential, but you will get the point. If want to know more, please call us and we can talk your ear off.
In 2012, while Political leadership at Toronto City Hall was suffering, the City Manger asked us to work on a high intensity recruitment for the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). Executing our search in a highly professional manner, within a politically charged atmosphere, amid intense media and public scrutiny, we successfully helped to select four outstanding Citizen Directors for the TTC. We built a "wall" around the toxic atmosphere and put forward candidates based on merit. There has not been a single political crisis at the TTC since our candidates joined.
With only 90 days notice and Thanksgiving and Christmas looming, RioCan bought out their US Partners. This meant we had to hire all the employees for a new US Head Office ... from scratch. With a speed and intensity worthy of Olympians, we were part of the team that pulled together and got it done. We also hired their key IT Architect during a critical JD Edwards implementation and have filled many other vital roles.
When Oxford Properties bought $1Billion worth of properties in Boston they needed someone with specific accounting experience to manage the transition. We found a superstar who had done similar work in Australia. Look up and smile the next time you are in Boston.
We received a cold call from an advertising agency in New York City late one Friday afternoon. They needed to replace their Canadian Leader. The entire search had to be done in 100% confidence. We arranged for interviews to take place in Chicago to keep local Toronto and New York based executives out of the spotlight. We raised the bar for this type of search and have subsequently worked on similar roles in Miami and Dallas.
A call came in ... "Can you find someone to help us run the largest tire factory in the world? Oh yeah, and it happens to be in rural Oklahoma." We hired a superstar and Robinson and their client, Goodyear, are both asking why they didn't call us sooner. We set the gold standard now being duplicated at their sites.
One of our earliest clients was National | Equicom. They are an Investor Relations firm. One of our first hires, an account executive, went on to become President. Equicom was eventually bought by the TMX and recently re-sold to National Public Relations. One reason the company has grown and become more valuable is directly attributed to hiring great employees. Many of the key people we hired in the early days are now part of the senior management team.
Never heard of them? Well look at the container your last plant came in. They probably made it. We hired employee #2 in 2002 and most of their current head office management team. This 100 person operation now boasts over $50Million in annual sales. Our key hires were critical to the early success of this high growth, high pressure, intensely competitive company.
