October 14, 2015 – TWC International Executive Search Limited, the Canadian-based affiliate of global executive search firm SpenglerFox, has named former Spencer Stuart recruiter Lisa Newey as senior director. In her new role at TWC, she will be responsible for developing and managing client relationships and assignments as well as candidate sourcing, recruitment and assessment, with a focus on financial services.
Ms. Newey has executed searches across all seniority levels, with a concentration on executive positions, in all areas of financial services, including asset management, investment banking, sales, trading, research, private equity, regulatory compliance, and personal and commercial banking, among others.
Previously, she was a consultant within the financial practice at Spencer Stuart. Before that, Ms. Newey was with Vlaad and Company, a specialty boutique, where she focused on full-cycle financial markets recruiting.
In addition to her background in executive search, she draws on the perspectives and insights gained from her 15-year career in capital markets roles, in North America and abroad.
“We are absolutely delighted to have Lisa join TWC International. Her extensive executive search experience and skills extend our capabilities and level of quality as a leading global firm,” said Richard Wajs, president and CEO. “I would add that she is most importantly a person who instills trust in clients because of her outstanding character and reputation. We expect her to be a major success with TWC International for many years to come.”
Canada is one of the fastest growing global recruiting hubs, according to data from Hunt Scanlon Media. The service sector dominates the region — which includes companies in aerospace, banking and financial services, oil and gas, logging and automotive. Companies here are generally seen as progressive and cross-border search work is routine practice for headhunters serving both American and Canadian companies.
TWC International is a global executive search firm. Its client base includes multinational corporations, major financial institutions, technology, industrial/manufacturing, mining and energy, telecommunications and consumer packaged goods companies, pharmaceutical and life sciences companies, professional services firms, transportation, private equity and venture capital firms and their portfolio companies, as well as companies specializing in other economic sectors.
