Senior Vice President, Molson Coors Brewing Company Ltd.
"As always, Mandrake's counsel was pivotal in helping hire the right person for the job."

Managing Director, JWT
"In the search for our head of global marketing and sales, we decided to retain Bill because of his extensive network in the consumer packaged goods industry. We interviewed talent from around the globe, eventually landing on an outstanding hire for the role. Bill's contribution to the hiring process went well beyond sourcing talent. His advice and counsel throughout the search made what was likely to be an impossible task, a smooth and productive process for all our stakeholders. Bill is a highly experienced search professional that always puts your interest before his own. I've known Bill throughout my career, and highly recommend him to anyone who needs a true search professional."

CEO, Clearwater Seafoods
Bill's greatest strength in search is his ability to look beyond a candidate's hard skills to better understand how their goals, character and values align with the opportunity. This, along with his in-depth market knowledge makes him a true strategic partner, providing a unique lens through which win-win strategies are shaped."

President at Hasbro Canada
"At York, we have found Mandrake most helpful and successful in finding us just the right people - often from unexpected places- to build our organization. They listen carefully, spend time with us and with potential candidates, treat everyone really well so those who have not succeeded in one competition often succeed in another even in the same division at York. We will continue to use Mandrake in many of our divisions."

Former President and Vice-Chancellor, York University
"Mandrake provived us with very good profiles on several opportunities of recruitment. I have highly appreciated its professionalism in terms of job and profile requirements analysis. I can qualify it as a high level of performance in terms of bringing in time appropriate candidates. Some of the candidates that joined LNA through Mandrake searches are still with us."

Regional VP HR, Western Europe and Morocco, Eastern Mediterranean and Trading, Lafarge Cement Division, Lafarge North America
"Mandrake knows Lafarge and its operations very well. Patrick McLean, our contact from Mandrake, is able to partner effectively by getting us the right candidate within a matter of weeks without wasting our time. Most of those they've recruited for us, if not all, have proven their worth and capability as well as their potential. They're the best I have ever worked with in North America."

Director of Human Resources, Northeast Region, Lafarge North America
"Mandrake does far more than simply fill a vacancy with great talent, they take the time to really understand our company culture and seek out individuals capable of making us all better."

President, Publicis Toronto
"This was our first major search with an agency and we entered with a bit of uncertainty that another company could understand our needs and help us. In the end, this was the most successful search to date. You hit our timelines and have made a highly qualified hire."

Chief Operating Officer, Butterfield & Robinson
"I have to say you really, really impressed us and your work confirmed that you were absolutely the right company for the job. You are just excellent at what you do."

Former Partner & Art Director, ZiG Inc. (now CP+B)

Former General Manager, Media Sales and Marketing, CBC
"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."
