I have been fortunate enough to work with Tanya to identify, vet and place candidates on several occasions during my career. These roles were international in scope and required the placement of high-calibre sales marketing & business development leaders with unique and comprehensive profiles. In each instance, Tanya was able to provide a pool of candidates that met and exceeded our expectations and resulted in the placement of a top-flight and high-contributing teammate. Tanya has always provided strong guidance and feedback during the process and I admire her flexibility, adaptability and commitment to finding not just the best candidates on paper, but the best candidates in terms of overall cultural and organizational fit.

It was such a pleasure working with Michael. He provided fantastic insight, spot-on background of the company and thoughtful conversation throughout the process. He was wonderful to work with!

I can highly recommend Tanya as a true expert in finding senior leadership talents.

She found a candidate who not only ticked all the must-have boxes but also someone who met all of our softer requirements and is a great addition to the team. Tanya is very easy to work with and my number one person “to go” about special recruitments in the medical device space.
