Executive Search

1. Our Process

We maintain an exclusive relationship with the companies that entrust us with their executive search mandates
(C-Suite D-Suite). This allows us to fully understand the organizational context, management culture, issues, corporate objectives and to focus on the quality of our interventions.

We gather a multitude of information that we share with the qualified executives we identify in order to stimulate and hopefully foster their interest in the position and the company we represent.

We make sure that clients and candidates do not waste their time meeting in a speculative rather than a strategic context.

2. What sets us apart?

Our clients and the executives with whom we collaborate appreciate our transparency, our passion, our advice and our observations in a highly confidential context.

With close to 30 years of experience in executive search, at Metivier we are masters in the art of collaborating with candidates who share our values. All members of our recruiting firm respect and apply the duties and obligations of this present code of conduct for Executive Search Consultants developed by the Chartered Human Resources Advisors Order.

The candidates we target during our recruitment process have a minimum of five years of experience in a management or professional position.
