Ellen O’Brien

Recruitment Associate

Ellen’s background is different than most. After graduating from Wilfrid Laurier with a B.A in Communications, in 2006, Ellen lived and worked in Dublin, Ireland. It was there she made her first hole-in-one which perhaps spearheaded her decision to move back to Canada in 2008 and become a Golf Professional. Five years and two more hole-in-ones later, Ellen retired her pro card to join Vlaad and Company to pursue a career in recruitment. Ellen is great at developing and maintaining relationships, has a keen eye for detail and if she doesn’t know the answer she will certainly look hard to find it. Her dedication and foresight has propelled her to jump head first into Capital Markets recruitment. In her spare time Ellen has not hung up her clubs and is always up for a round of golf. Like much of the team, Ellen also enjoys travelling. The best pint of Guinness can be found at J. O’Connell’s in Dublin; she is still traumatized from witnessing the bull fights in Madrid; and her favourite golf course is Port Royal in Bermuda.
