Welcome to Mandrake
Why Mandrake

We actively seek feedback from clients to help us understand what they need from an executive search firm. There are a number of reasons that compel our clients to continue working with us:

We take the time to get to know our clients and thoroughly understand their business. Every search begins with an in-depth meeting to discuss not only the requirements of the job, but to understand the nuances of the company culture and position.

We know how to effectively present opportunities to attract top talent in the marketplace. We also know how to thoroughly communicate their profiles to clients so they are well-positioned to make the right hiring decision.

Our subject matter experts each have an average of 15 years of search experience. They have a breadth and depth of industry and functional knowledge that allow them to identify the right talent for the job.

With a constantly changing business landscape, we keep up to date on what's happening in the marketplace through research, networking, industry associations and professional affiliations. From hiring trends to company mergers and acquisitions to the state of the economy, staying informed helps keep us and our clients competitive.

With over 40 years in business, we continue to grow our network of top talent. We don’t merely rely on a database of candidates; we actively seek out passive candidates in the marketplace in response to the requirements of the position and the preferences of the client.

We've had the privilege of working with thousands of companies since opening our doors in 1970. We're grateful to them for expressing their satisfaction in the many client testimonials we've received over the years.

We follow a rigorous 10-step search process to ensure each project is thorough and consistent. The process includes an initial organizational assessment, market research, candidate interviewing, job offer negotiation, onboarding and a post-hire project review.

We believe that honesty and integrity are important for any successful relationship. To build trust, we conduct our business with courtesy and respect so that clients feel confident working with us.

As the Canadian partner of the International Executive Search Federation (IESF), we are the largest retained executive search group in the world, identifying talent and leadership through 130 offices in 40 countries.

We recognize that confidentiality and privacy are important to our clients and candidates.  We never disclose sensitive information about a search including confidential details about the company or position.

"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."
