Verriez Executive Search: Candidate Reviews

We take exceptional care to ensure the right 'fit’, looking beyond the CV and the experience to the person and their own requirements. We’re delighted that as a result, many executives that we have placed then contact us for their own search requirements.

Here is just a small selection of reviews from very satisfied candidates - call us if you’d like to join them!


Rupert Saunders, Chief Financial Officer, AV Gauge & Fixture Inc.

“I would not have been in this exciting new role if it was not for Paul, Brent, and the rest of the Verriez team. They not only did an outstanding job matching my skillset and values with that of this great company, but went out of their way to meet me after hours, arranged the interviews at convenient times and provided valuable insight during the final negotiations. Brent's background as a CPA was very helpful since it allowed him full insight into my technical and practical experience and the challenge to achieve an acceptable work-life balance.

Paul's follow-up since I started gave me opportunities to discuss concerns with him and his insight has been very valuable. I definitely recommend the Verriez Executive Search group to all employers and candidates based on my experience.”


Mike Turner, CFO & Treasurer Municipality of Chatham - Kent

"Paul and the Verriez team provided a great deal of support and communication throughout the entire placement process. I really appreciated their efforts to ensure that this was an appropriate fit for me both personally and professionally, while also working closely and discreetly with both my new and former employers during the process. It certainly was a big help during the decision making and transition."


Andrew Johnston CA, Vice President Finance & Chief Financial Officer, McCormick Canada

"Paul and the Verriez team demonstrated a high level of professionalism and diligence throughout the placement process.  I particularly appreciated the significant effort invested to ensure an appropriate fit for both myself and my current employer.  Paul and the team's support ultimately led to a great career opportunity with a great company."


Amy Butler, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Farm Mutual Re Canada

"I would like to acknowledge Paul, Brent, and the entire Verriez team for the professionalism and diligence they exhibited throughout the placement process. I felt that the Verriez group was genuinely concerned about ensuring the right fit for me and the employer and not simply trying to fill the role. They took the time to understand both my professional skills and goals as well as my personal responsibilities.

I appreciated that the placement process didn’t stop once the contract was signed. There is consistent follow-up to allow additional discussion about the role and to share insights or concerns.

Based on my experience, I have already recommended the Verriez Executive Search group to a candidate looking for a team that will go above and beyond to find the appropriate fit for both the candidate and the employer."


Chris Cowell, President - Entegrus Services / Chief Financial and Relegatory Officer - Entegrus

"I cannot overstate the value of Verriez to my job search. They provided two of the most critical elements: an extensive network of prospective employers, and feedback throughout the process to help polish my interview skills and secure a job offer. It's obvious why Verriez has had over three decades of success: they create long term relationships by providing exceptional value to both prospective employers and job hunters."


Fred Vanderheide, Chief Financial Officer Steeves and Rozema Group, Sarnia, Ontario

"Getting to know Paul and his team was a great experience. They were all very dedicated and customer service oriented. His method of dealing with me was impressive, keeping me informed on a regular basis as to the application and decision making process. Thanks to Paul and his team for your friendly and dedicated approach which led to this great position with my present employer."
