Our Services

Over 30 years of experience have confirmed that no two executive searches are the same. This means a successful search requires a customized approach with the highest level of collaboration and personal service.

Early Consultation

We begin every executive search with a series of focused meetings to learn about your organization’s needs, goals and culture. After defining the ideal candidate we work with you to develop and implement an innovative strategy to find that individual.

Search Process

Building off of our clear understanding of your organization and industry, we use the reach of our entire team and global partner firms to identify a highly qualified short list of applicants from around the world. We keep you informed of our progress throughout and identify any necessary adjustments as we move forward.

Final Results

After successfully identifying a final list of candidates we perform all reference checks and assist with the candidate offer. We also make a point to follow-up with you and the candidates several months after the completion of the search because it is important to us that the placement is a long-term success.

Track Record

Over the past 30 years we have successfully placed senior executives in a wide variety of private, public and not-for-profit organizations around the country. We believe that it is our high level of personal service and collaboration along with our strong networks across Canada and beyond that has driven this success.

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!

PFM’s approach was very thorough, from the initial outreach, to the screening and progress reports, and the final reference checks. We were impressed with the quality of candidates presented at each stage of the process, and appreciated their hands on partnership approach to a most critical decision for our organization”
