Executives Online open office in Canada
James O’Brien, chief operating officer of Executives Online, said, “Our international business is going from strength to strength and the opening of a new Canadian office reflects the growing mobility of professional talent and further demonstrates our commitment to servicing clients’ needs. It is an exciting time for the development of the company with rapid growth fuelled by innovations such as our executive-intro&trade which provides employers with an online 360 degree view of shortlisted candidates through introductory videos coupled with behavioural and competency based profiles, references and more.”
The new office opening comes at a time when research from business advisory firm Deloitte and the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) reveals a strong performance across the UK professional recruitment sector, with 65 percent of firms with UK headquarters planning to open new offices overseas.
Jonathan Katz will head up the new Canadian office, the first North American base for Executives Online, and will be responsible for enhancing, structuring and managing the company’s new venture. Katz brings over 20 years of relevant experience and is a proven leader in the financial services industry.
Katz said, “I am delighted to front the Canadian office of Executives Online which will be in full operation by the end of the year. The office will be driving growth in the recruitment of executives on both a permanent and interim basis, specialising in the financial sector.”
Prior to joining Executives Online, Katz ran his own private equity business and has also held various senior positions at GE Capital Canada Inc., IBM Canada LTD and Key Equipment Finance Canada.
