Hundreds of mandates but a unique passion: people

Karine Robert, CRHA

Founding Partner

“Our goal is not to find the absolute best, but to secure the leader who will create and leave a long-lasting legacy in your organization.”

Karine is an internal recruiter with more than 20 years of experience in Canada and in Europe. She has actively participated in the fulfillment of more than 500 exclusive mandates involving the search of Executives and Boards of Directors for organizations across both the public and private sectors.

She earned a Master of Science Degree in International Management with a specialization in Human Resources, through a joint degree program offered collaboratively by the École Supérieure de Commerce et de Management de Tours-Poitiers (France) and the Université de Sherbrooke. She is certified CRHA, from the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés.

Karine is fluent in French and English. She has been granted the “secret” level security status by the federal government with whom she partners regularly in the recruitment of their executives and leaders.

She upholds the highest standards of rigour and integrity. Passionate, she enjoys a strong reputation among both clients and candidates for her high level of professionalism and commitment. She is also a generous person, strongly committed to the community and to supporting causes that are close to her heart.

Léonie Gallant

Associate Collaborator

“The initial meeting with the client is what triggers the search process in my mind. Engaging early on in the process and facilitating ongoing communication are two essential key factors of success.”

Léonie has been working in the search and recruitment of executives and professionals since 2008. Her extensive experience in wearing many hats, including those of recruiter and researcher, allowed her to gain a strategic insight across a broad range of areas, including the institutional and educational sectors, the insurance industry and consultancy services.

She has always been closely involved with clients in the business community, so she is well aware that behind each mandate there is a team with specific needs, and administrators with high expectations. With the ever-present concern to satisfy all of them, she conducts the assignments that are entrusted to her in a thorough and effective manner. She is often referred to as “a real partner” for her professional and respectful approach.

In addition to her expertise in executive searches, Léonie offers coaching and career management services for executives and professionals. She has been running her own private firm since 2013 and acts as Associate Collaborator for Electi.
