“Building leadership competency is a difficult challenge at the best of times but when forced to adapt this requirement to the pace of change associated with the information technology industry, it becomes a nearly impossible task without the assistance of a dynamic and adaptive executive search firm. As a Partner at BDO Canada, I worked with Morris and his team to originally define a search for a senior executive who would play a key role in helping our technology practice achieve some very lofty growth ambitions. Over the course of the search, our practice continued to evolve rapidly and as a result, a few of the critical search criteria needed to be revised in order to support the current and future requirements of the business. Morris and his organization were able to adapt seamlessly and translate these requirements into the existing search, ensuring that we were able to leverage the valuable time and effort that had already been invested into the initiative.
Despite the transitional nature of our business, MTCG was ultimately able to source an outstanding candidate who we are very confident will not only have an immediate impact on our technology practice but will also provide tremendous value to BDO Canada for many years to come. If you are looking for a strategic partner within the executive search realm that can support the dynamic nature of your business, I would wholeheartedly recommend Morris and the rest of the MTCG team.”

“I have worked with Morris Tambor and his team at MTCG for over 7 years and the experience has been rewarding for me, both as a candidate and a client.
Morris recruited me to fill an Operations Senior Leadership role at a major private Medical Lab. As a candidate, he clearly presented the opportunity to me and invested the time to ensure I was well prepared for the interview process. He represented the company very well and was honest in his portrayal to ensure I would be a good fit for the role and the organization. This speaks highly to MTCG’s commitment to placing candidates that will have a very high probability of staying with the company.
I have also used MTCG as a search firm during my stay at the Medical Lab company and in my current role at Toronto Research Chemicals. At both organizations, we used our internal recruiters to find candidates for our vacancies, however, when we could not make progress because filling the role proved to be too challenging, we would turn to Morris and his team. Examples include searches for very specific skill sets, such as a strong scientific background coupled with leadership experience and Lean knowledge. There were other examples where the difficulty was further compounded by the roles being in more remote locations. In all cases, Morris and his team was successful by taking the time to understand our needs and the company’s culture, advising us on how to prepare the posting, using his extensive network and database to thoroughly search for candidates, effectively screening and preparing the candidates and assisting us with the selection of the successful candidate. I have been very pleased with the service provided by Morris and would highly recommend using MTCG for those difficult to fill roles.”

“MTCG Associates Inc. has performed multiple searches and successfully placed executive level positions on my team. The positions span from business unit leaders to a Vice President of a territory.
Morris and his team conducted a thorough, structured and comprehensive analysis of all the potential candidates to present for my evaluation team. The goal of placing the right individual is just as important as the sense of urgency of the hire. Morris’s team is client focused in their communication as well as scheduling interviews to move the ball forward.
MTCG has been able to seek out compelling candidates with relevant backgrounds, experiences and high degree of fit with the role and organizational culture. This is a daunting task as we are in the early stages of bottoms-up transformation. Morris has been exceptionally engaged, with frequent communication touch points and progress updates. The searches yielded great results and I would urge anyone to call Morris the first time and every time for critical hires to your team.”

“Since I had been faced with some recruiting difficulties, I decided to seek assistance from a search firm to help me out with this task. During my career, I have hired a dozen different search firms and dealt with many individuals from these firms. This time around my expectations were not any different with this new Executive Search Firm, but I decided to contact Morris Tambor. Morris asked the right questions without leading me in a direction I really wasn’t interested in going and really customized the profile of my individual needs. The match on paper was just perfect. Now, the big task; finding the individuals who will fit this profile.
Through continuous verbal updates and written reports, I was kept in the loop on the progress of this search. In fact, his reports were so detailed and accurate that I felt I knew the individuals as though I interviewed them myself. Morris was able to feed me with specific information or perceptions on areas that needed to be explored during the interviews. All our Candidates knew exactly the fine details of the role, the organization and the responsibilities associated with this position.
I strongly believe the important attributes I would give towards Morris’ work ethics would be “honesty” with the Client and the Candidates, “open communication” by always keeping me in the loop on his progress, as well as his ability to “listen” to my needs and concerns. He is extremely professional and efficient in every step of the process. He responds quickly to changes when they occur and remains attentive to his customer’s needs. If you need to hire a key person in your organization, let Morris do it for you. You will never find someone who will accomplish it better!”

“From a generalist consultative perspective in human capital, Morris and his associate team at MTCG exhibited an in-depth approach to helping us evaluate some very key human capital needs for our near term requirements.
Morris and his research associate listened to our abstract overview and in turn created a concrete and meaningful position profile which eventually helped in our sculpting an even more effective Scientific Delivery Team. MTCG’s overall industry intelligence was important to our assessing the appropriate organizational and recruitment needs for future smarter growth.”
