The search was a great success, and the Phelps partners identified a strong longlist with 50% diversity candidates...Phelps has been a consistent Executive Search partner with the City of Toronto for over a decade. We have led recruitments across a variety of levels, including the current City Manager, two of the current Deputy City Managers along with two previous Deputy City Managers. In addition, we have recruited several members of the City’s current and previous General Managers, Executive Directors, and Directors in a variety of portfolios and divisions.
I was always and still am so impressed with Phelps and to be honest hold all other agencies to their standards (few of which can rise to that level).They have such extensive communications and engagement and brought to the table a very balanced view of each candidate. They always included some strong outliers many of which made it to the final round. I appreciate how they also helped us to stretch our own thinking.
I am very excited to communicate how professional and organised Phelps' support team is. When we send our request in, I am always amazed as to how quickly we get a response back. I am a very busy person and don't have time to go through resumes and request that your establishment make their judgements as per my needs.
