With over 25 years, creating relationships in the Canadian Consumer Goods and Services industries, McLennan has become one of the most trusted names in Marketing and Sales recruitment. It is the people, not a process, that makes recruitment firms successful. Our industry knowledge, our enterprise mindset, and our discerning eye for talent are the key assets that put us a step ahead of the rest.


We are keenly aware of the financial and cultural costs associated with an empty desk. We work to balance moving quickly while allowing the market time to reveal the best possible candidate, not just someone who can do the job.

We are small and agile, so your primary contact is the recruiter working directly on your mandate from brief to offer. Removing layers allows us to keep communication uncomplicated and deliver the best quality talent in a timely fashion.


We are genuinely interested in your business, your structure and the culture that makes your company unique. We are very interested in the individuals who create your culture; what motivates them, how they like to operate and what their vision is for the success of the organization.
Meeting people who are exceptional at what they do and matching them with the career opportunities that allow them to make their mark, is what drives us. We take pride in the shortlists we present to our clients, and strive to ensure every candidate you meet with is a productive use of your valuable time.

I had the very good fortune to partner with Laura on a number of Marketing and Sales searches within the CPG industry for which my firm was recruiting. I found Laura to be very knowledgeable of the industry, marketplace and industry players. Equally critical was her demonstrated ability to understand the culture of our organization and the dynamics of our people to ensure a strong fit between our business needs and the selected clients she put forth. As a true business partner, Laura was an active advocate for our firm in the marketplace, worked diligently for the candidates she represented, and was motivated by achieving successful long term relationships between client and candidate. In short, Laura is a wonderfully personable, professional and talented search consultant who goes the extra mile for both client and candidate to secure a successful placement.
