Elaine is the Vice President of Client Services with IQ PARTNERS with a specialty focus in recruiting for B2B & B2C Marketing and Sales across a number of industries.

After spending three years teaching and travelling throughout Southeast Asia, Elaine returned to Toronto to begin her career in advertising sales. Soon after, she was offered a recruiting role with a headhunting firm that had formerly placed her. She accepted, and spent the next several years driving business and building the sales and marketing recruitment arms of the firm.

In all, she has amassed a total of 18 years in sales, sales management, and recruiting at the agency level – selling both contingent and retained search – and has a deep understanding of the sales and marketing processes and what it takes to build a successful team.

"In the past five years, not only have you helped me improve my team, you are one of the people I have come to trust the most. Thanks and good luck with the award."
