September 23, 2010 – Boyden will open an office in Winnipeg as part of a strategic alliance with People First HR Services. Dr. John McFerran has been assigned as managing director of the Winnipeg offices of Boyden Global Executive Search. “Boyden enjoys an international reputation and strong brand presence in our markets, and we are rigorous about the people, companies and cities with whom we choose to ally,” said Trina D. Gordon, Boyden chair. “We are eager to be coming to Winnipeg, a city and a region with a stable economy, centralized commerce, range of companies with international ties and a promising future. Those tangibles, along with the best practices Dr. John McFerran and his team have established with People First HR Services, align strongly with the Boyden way.” Boyden is an executive search firm with more than 70 offices in over 40 countries.
