TORONTO, Canada, June 2, 2016 — Retained executive search firm The Caldwell Partners International Inc. (TSX: CWL) today announced the appointment of two new Partners in the firm’s Toronto and Calgary offices. Anthony Capodanno is joining the Toronto office and the Industrial and Professional Services practices, and Courtney Day in the firm’s Calgary office is being promoted to Partner in the Industrial Practice.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Capodanno spent over 15 years in the executive search industry with both global publicly-listed and privately-held firms, as well as leading a private practice, and has been a multiple President’s Award recipient for his key contributions. Previous to his consulting career, he held key positions with leading blue-chip organizations within the financial services and IT&T sectors.
“Anthony is an important addition to our Canadian team,” said Elan Pratzer, managing partner of the firm’s Canadian region. “He has led numerous executive engagements throughout Canada, the U.S. and globally, acting as a strategic advisor, close business partner and confidant to clients throughout the process. Additionally, his combination of deep market knowledge and highly disciplined approach to execution make him a perfect fit for the Caldwell Partners team, and will allow us to better serve our clients.”
Mr. Pratzer continued: “Courtney has distinguished both herself and our firm with her energy, drive, and client commitment. Her strengths and success are indicative of the talent we have inside our firm, and she has earned a reputation for building strong trusted advisor relationships with her candidates and clients across North America.
Ms. Day focuses on recruiting senior executives in the industrial sector, with particular expertise in the energy, utilities, infrastructure, and real estate space. Prior to joining Caldwell Partners, she recruited senior level executives in human resources, supply chain management, and health, safety, & environment with a Canadian boutique search firm. Before joining the recruiting industry, she was an account executive at Incite, a marketing firm for business-to-business (B2B) organizations in Alberta, where she worked with clients across several industries and sectors. Ms. Day also has a background as a public relations consultant at Hill & Knowlton and brings research experience as a government members’ research officer with the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.
“Anthony and Courtney’s appointments are a huge positive for our firm as a whole, and our Industrial Practice in particular,” said Dave Winston, managing partner of the firm’s Industrial Practice. “The added industrial expertise extending our industry coverage in Canada will allow us to better serve our clients on a global basis.”
