Mary is responsible for recruitment activities within the Technology space, where she works as part of a larger team to ensure that all clients, including some of her own, are fully serviced with high quality candidates.

A native Montrealer with a background in Communications from McGill University, she began her career in newspaper ad sales. She then moved into the creation of conference content development for both a small legal firm as well as an international association representing airline executives worldwide. It was in this role that Mary found her passion for recruitment, as she thrived in recruiting industry experts to speak at conference events.

She has now found her home in executive search and recruitment, where she’s able to leverage her bilingual and international experience to help her find the best candidates for her clients.

"In past few months, we have been working with Mary to help us find right talent for two new hires. She was very responsive to our requests with a can-do professional attitude throughout the hiring process. We look forward to working with her for our future hires and her continued support in finding talent to support our growth."

"My recruitment team has worked with Mary on our senior software developer roles in Richmond Hill. Recruitment is a crowded market, but quality specialists are rare and that’s why we like working with Mary. As a business we pride ourselves on only recruiting the best talent and she helps us find that. She also values our time and is extremely focused on the job in hand – both great qualities for building a successful relationship with clients."

"Mary always showed strong dedication and commitment to her job. I appreciated her quick responses, efficiency and prompt follow-up to every single step of the process. She was friendly, approachable, helpful, willing to go the extra mile while rendering top notch service even after office hours. Her personal touch gained my trust and respect, and I would highly recommend IQ PARTNERS to anyone who is looking for a new position."
