Noel is part of IQ PARTNERS’ Accounting & Finance and Financial Services & Insurance recruitment groups, where he specializes in business development and the permanent placements of external reporting, management reporting, internal audit, tax, process improvement, and other accounting professionals.

Noel graduated from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) with an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree, before spending a number of years working as a Financial Analyst in the Manufacturing and Travel industries.  He found that his job wasn’t providing him the opportunity to connect with other people; his phone wasn’t ringing and he felt chained to his desk.

It was during an interview with a recruiter for an accounting role that Noel first started thinking about a career in recruitment.  Several years later, Noel is thriving as an Accounting and Finance recruiter, and is in late stages of the CGA program.  He credits his firsthand knowledge of the industry for his ability to connect smart people and great companies.
