Leadership Agency Expands as Global Talent Market Shakeup Equals Opportunity for Industry Growth in Canada

The Leadership Agency brings New Managing Director, Aaron Booth

Toronto, Ontario, CANADA

TORONTO, Ontario, May 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With a growing client need to source top talent within Canadian companies, The Leadership Agency today announced that Aaron Booth will be joining the firm as Managing Director. Booth comes to the newly-founded boutique recruitment firm with over 15 years of experience driving successful growth strategies for both a Fortune 500 and tech startup.

Canada has positioned itself as a leader in key industries such as technology, energy and agriculture. The success of these industries contributes directly to the country’s economic gain and industry leaders need to ensure they have the right top talent in place to grow and sustain for the long term. That is where The Leadership Agency comes into play, by helping companies find the right leaders to support growth, help them scale, and compete on the global stage. 

Booth’s mandate will be to help The Leadership Agency clients lead in their sectors by connecting them with the visionary talent they need to take them to the top. His hire was a strategic decision for the firm’s President and Founder Jamie Hoobanoff. “At The Leadership Agency our purpose is to ‘help our clients lead’,” stated Hoobanoff. “We believe that comes from having the right people, in the right decision-making positions, at the right time. Bringing Aaron Booth on board is just an example of us living our purpose of having talented leaders in strategic roles. That's why I am so excited about this addition to the Agency.”

Booth spent the past eight years developing and executing a growth strategy for Sales & Customer Success at Firmex, a successful Toronto tech startup. Prior to that, he was Structuring Manager and top Sales Executive with GE Capital. He holds an MBA in Finance from Dalhousie University, graduating with the highest GPA in his class.

The timing of this hire is no coincidence as The Leadership Agency knows that big things are happening for Canada. Hoobanoff cites recent developments such as the city of Toronto's $1.5 million grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies to look for solutions from the tech community, the federal government's recent ‘innovation budget’, and the many enterprises in Toronto's MaRS innovation hub competing for global tech talent fleeing anti-immigrant vibes of Brexit and Trump's America as key reasons why "the time is now and Canada is ready and willing to compete for global talent – especially in the red hot tech sector.”

"To capitalize on the opportunities available right now, hiring great leaders is the most important decision any company can make," said Hoobanoff. "The Leadership Agency has done that with the addition of Booth to our team, and now we're more poised than ever to help our clients do the same."
