Our Approach

Every executive search is different but they all start with us listening to you, so that we clearly understand your business’ needs, goals and culture. Armed with a full appreciation of your organization’s core values we work collaboratively with your executive team and partners to define the ideal candidate. This upfront investment leads to a more focused and successful search no matter how unique the case.

Throughout the search process we keep you informed of our progress and involve you every step of the way. We delve deeply into our local and global networks to ensure no stone remains unturned for the perfect candidates. From first contact, every candidate is treated with the utmost respect and discretion. We also stay committed to providing every individual with fair and equitable consideration.

In the end, finding the right person for an executive position is a balance of experience, due diligence and intuition. Our overwhelming success rate is a testament to our ability to do just that, while effectively leveraging our global reach and innovative search techniques.

Northern Health has worked with PFM on numerous searches for difficult to fill positions. Each time PFM has displayed the utmost professionalism. They are friendly, prompt, and have found us great applicants each time.

The Board of Parkinson Society of British Columbia retained PFM Executive Search to replace our retiring Chief Executive Officer.  The search delivery team from PFM did an amazing job of engaging with our key stakeholders to fully understand the organization’s challenges and the important competencies that we were seeking in the next CEO. They sourced a diverse group of candidates and facilitated a professional and thorough selection process that resulted in a fabulous new leader joining our organization. We are thrilled with the outcome and felt completely supported all along the way.

Engaging PFM Executive Search to recruit my successor was one of our best moves in recent years. Each of your team members are professional, you know the business extremely well, your guidance was outstanding, and you were very generous with your time. Never did we feel rushed in making decisions or hesitate in placing “one more call to you” for advice. We here at Durwest are heading into this next chapter with confidence that our new President will maintain the reputation that our company has built and will take us to the next level. Thank you and certainly where the opportunity presents itself, we will be recommending your firm!
