About Us

Massey Henry was created to bring a fresh approach to the traditional field of executive recruitment. We have created practices and processes that are efficient and effective for clients and open and constructive for candidates.

Founder and Managing Partner Michael Henry believes in the power of networks and connections and is a fierce promoter of Canadian talent at home and abroad. His vision was to create a firm that would set a new standard for executive search in Canada and shine a spotlight on Canadian talent. He believes in the power of diversity in all its forms to create strong leadership teams and high impact boards.

At Massey Henry, we lead by example and are guided by our values: trust, transparency, innovation and active engagement. We embrace agile processes that are deeply informed by our understanding of our clients and the sectors in which they operate, helping transform their organizations and select and engage key talent.

By setting the bar high, we aim to be the partner of choice and provider of world-class executive recruitment services for leading Canadian organizations.

Solutions And Expertise

Start Smarter, Move Faster

Our executive search experts have a proven track record of partnering with organizations to build their teams with transformational leaders. Our focus is critical, urgent, complex assignments when time is of the essence and access to exceptional, high-value talent is key. Collaboration is the cornerstone of our approach. We are disrupting the rigid culture of traditional corporate search firms by offering clients an open, transparent, collaborative search process that moves quickly and delivers the right talent.

Diversity doesn’t happen by accident. Strong companies know they need to benefit from the widest range of experiences, backgrounds and thought to thrive and grow. We focus on minimizing bias throughout the entire recruitment process. We believe in the broadest definition of diversity and approach to executive search and consulting with a clear point of view: that diversity can be inherent or acquired, ranging across gender, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, work experience, age, geography, education, communication style, socioeconomic background and cultural background.
