David is recognized across North America for his expertise in finding the very best talent for his clients. His experience in executive search spans more than 20 years working with organizations, both big and small, within the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
He began his executive search career with one of the leading global management consultancies. In 1990, following his entrepreneurial urge, and out of a desire to provide absolute excellence in his executive search service, he ventured out on his own and has not looked back since.
His earlier experience included stints with a start-up publishing venture, as an economist with the federal government, and working on a rail gang in Saskatchewan.
David received an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from Concordia University in Montreal.
David currently sits on the City of Toronto’s Board of Health, providing governance overview to the Toronto Public Health Department.
David is also active raising money for a number of charities including Cycle for Sight, Ride for Karen, and Tour for Kids Foundation – which host a number of annual cycling events (please see Giving Back). He lives in downtown Toronto, and can be found on the soccer pitches or canoe camping with his two children, or training for any number of cycling and skiing events.
