Stanton Chase, one of the top-ranked executive search firms worldwide, is very pleased to announce the launching of a significant new office in Toronto, Canada. The partners of Ambit Search, one of Toronto’s most respected boutique firms, have joined Stanton Chase as its latest global partner, effective January 1, 2015.
Ambit founding partners Cathy Logue, Joanne Elek and Sheriza Perabtani bring a wealth of executive search experience in the Canadian landscape to the Stanton Chase global team. Ambit has been a highly successful recruitment firm managed by a strong three-way partnership, solidified over 15 years. Its reputation for understanding client needs and making valuable long-term placements is second to none in the Toronto market.
Ambit primarily serves clients within the Greater Toronto Area, which has a population of over 6 million and is the hub of Canadian business. As North America’s fourth largest city, Toronto has one of the strongest and most significant economies within North America – and worldwide.
The announcement was made by Mickey Matthews, Global Chairman of Stanton Chase.
“Toronto is a pivotal market in the global economy and we have made it a strategic priority to establish a high quality presence there”, said Matthews. “We’re very pleased to have achieved this goal with the addition of Ambit Search and its outstanding team to our international footprint. Through the leadership of Joanne Elek, Sheriza Perabtani and Cathy Logue, we will have the expertise, client responsiveness, diversity and track record to deliver outstanding results to our global clients.”
Historically, Ambit’s primary focus has been on finance professionals, allowing for both breadth and depth across all industry sectors. Particular areas of expertise include the mining, real estate, financial services, professional services, technology and manufacturing sectors. The three partners have recruited highly talented teams for both private and public entities ranging from entrepreneurial start-ups through to highly established players in corporate Canada. Placements have included COOs, CFOs, and other leadership positions across Finance, Accounting, Taxation, Treasury, Audit and more recently Big Data and Data Analytics.
Cathy Logue states: “Joining forces with Stanton Chase is a win-win situation for all of us and an excellent fit on both sides. Joanne, Sheriza and I are very excited about working with such strong partners and expanding our global reach. This partnership will allow us to support our clients in attracting top talent from around the world and across all functional areas, as well as support the firm’s international clients using our deep knowledge of the Toronto market.”
The new Toronto office is located at 401 Bay Street, in the heart of the financial district. It joins the other Canadian Stanton Chase offices in Calgary and Montreal and the firm’s sixteen offices across North America.
