Executive Search

Our senior consultants hold professional designations as Certified Management Consultants and Certified Human Resource Practitioners. As a consequence of our active participation in these two professional bodies, our company and our associates are guided by their respective codes of conduct and professional practice guidelines.

Our principals and associates each bring more than 20 years of experience in executive search and business consulting to the table and have conducted searches across a broad variety of industries and functions, including searches for a significant number of organizations in the public sector. You will note that a significant number of our recent search projects have been for Counties, Alberta’s smaller communities and non-profit organizations. A listing of Legacy experience is available here.

Our reputation as executive search professionals has been based upon the development of a strategic and comprehensive process that understands, supports and represents the uniqueness, cultural and strategic orientation of each client. Undertaking an executive search assignment means representing our client in the marketplace – a delicate task that must be handled with industry and organization specific knowledge, sound judgment, sensitivity and confidentiality.
