March 6, 2020 – Toronto-based executive search and talent management solutions provider Bedford Consulting Group has formed a strategic advisory relationship with nuclear power executive Ian Rowley.
“We are very excited to have Ian join our team and provide his expert knowledge of the nuclear power industry,” said David McPherson, partner for Bedford’s energy and industrial technology group. “Ian will be a strategic advisor, assisting Bedford in our executive search assignments to bring the best, brightest and right talent to leading nuclear power companies and affiliated suppliers.”
Bedford’s leadership team is also excited to leverage Mr. Rowley’s vast industry contacts and knowledge. “We welcome Ian to Bedford and look forward to working together,” said Frank Galati, managing partner of Bedford’s resource practice.
Mr. Rowley has 39 years of experience in the nuclear power industry, including 16 years at Bruce Power where he held a number of senior positions in such areas as maintenance, equipment reliability, outage management and supplier performance. Over his career, Mr. Rowley has held senior leadership roles with British Energy and Amergen Energy.
“As the nuclear industry grows in Canada, it’s very important that we have top talent and strong leaders,” Mr. Rowley said “Bedford is a recognized leader in successfully recruiting executives in the nuclear industry and I look forward to adding my experience and knowledge to further enhance Bedford’s expertise.”
The Bedford Consulting Group is one of Canada’s largest privately-held executive search and talent advisory firms. Its services span the spectrum of talent management, including leadership assessment, coaching and development, and compensation advisory, as well as executive, managerial and senior technical recruitment.
Established in 1979, the Bedford Group has three offices in Canada: Toronto, Oakville (Ontario) and Vancouver, all of which consult with clients throughout North America and globally.
Just recently, the Bedford Group and SalesChoice Inc., a provider of AI predictive and prescriptive sales, and marketing analytics cloud solutions, entered into a strategic alliance to help advance AI skills development and leadership capabilities as well as acquisition and retention of executive AI leadership talent.
