Global Search Firm
Since 1989, DHR Global has been a leading, privately held provider of executive search solutions with more than 50 wholly owned offices spanning the globe. The firm’s consultants specialize in all industries and functions, providing senior-level executive search, management assessment and succession planning services tailored to the qualities and specifications of its client base.
DHR Global has launched a commercial growth practice, designed to drive a company’s competitive edge through the delivery of transformational, growth-oriented leaders in revenue-focused roles across marketing, sales, and strategy. “At a time of unprecedented disruption, corporations across industries are challenged with uncovering innovative ways to create value and sustain growth in a changing business climate,” said the search firm.
DHR’s new practice was formed with the understanding that alignment of marketing, sales and strategy is critical to an organization’s success. “A focus on revenue generation and transformation is always critical, but especially in the current economic environment,” said CEO Geoff Hoffmann. “Commercial growth roles are receiving even more attention by C-level decision makers as they prepare their businesses to meet current and future challenges, and we’re pleased to bring the high-impact leaders who can meet those challenges head-on.”
DHR recently opened a new office in Montreal. Spearheading the expansion are Jonathan Plourde and John Gradek, who join the firm as DHR’s first Montreal-based partners. The new location helps to strengthen DHR’s global footprint and supports the firm’s expansion plans across Canada.
With over 10 years’ experience in the executive search industry, Mr. Plourde will establish and lead the new location.
