I am passionate about the Recruitment Industry, providing both Clients & Candidates with excellent service. That means helping both parties find the right match at the right time. I love to network and get to know new contacts and companies while adding value to the businesses of existing customers by being a true Recruitment Partner. I am leading the business development & strategic account management for DEAN Groups Accounting, Finance & Technology Recruitment Divisions in the GTA. Background I provide my business partners with over 16 years of recruitment management expertise within the Accounting & Finance, Hi Tech and Construction / Engineering markets. Originally successful in England in one of the largest worldwide recruitment organisations, my skills have been utilized in managing direct accounts, managing offices & teams, and the design and implementation of business development initiatives.
