Profiles of Distinction
As seen in the Globe & Mail
Some say the ability to bring the right people together is nothing short of an art, but those in the know realize that it’s really a tremendous gift. Clients at Lovell & Associates Inc. have experienced this gift first-hand and greatly appreciate the difference. Established in 1988, Lovell & Associates is one of today’s most significant executive search firms ideally suited to place the most accomplished, in-demand professionals.
“We follow a strategic, targeted and research-intensive approach to our searches. We look for the top executives who fit the requirements and we reach out to them on a very personalized and confidential basis,” thoughtfully shares Andrée Lovell, Lovell & Associates’ dynamic and engaging president. “Recruiting involves not just identifying individuals with the appropriate background and skills, but also working extensively with those individuals to engage their interest in the position.
Many of the best candidates for senior positions are not actively looking for new opportunities.
Their interest in a new position develops only incrementally, as they learn more about the position and think about their own interests and ambitions. Identifying candidates is the most obvious part of our work, but our involvement goes much deeper and spans the entire duration of the search. We’re valued for the expert advice we bring to all stages of the search process, from infusing ourselves in the idiosyncrasies of their corporate culture to assisting in negotiations with the final candidate. We make significant differences, one executive at a time.”
Caring deeply about a client’s project means Andrée and her team of specialists share a heartfelt commitment to getting it done. And get it done they do – an impeccable track record details their accomplishments. Over years literally thousands of professionals who have been leveraged into stronger opportunities, have made a significant impact to our clients’ bottom line.
It only takes one brief meeting with Andrée Lovell to easily strike a bond, feel her enthusiasm for her clients and appreciate the incredible understanding she has of their projects. “The chemistry between the search consultant and the client is so important. Understanding the challenges and issues associated with the search assignment is absolutely paramount to our process. One hallmark of our success is that the majority of our work comes from satisfied clients – clients who return repeatedly to find the talent they need to grow their businesses. For high-performing companies looking for senior management in an increasingly tight executive market, engaging the right executive search group may be the only way to secure the right mix of skills, experience and cultural compatibility.”
Clients spanning many sectors are quick to praise Lovell & Associates for their attentiveness, professionalism, candor and the depth of their assessments. Candidates – both successful and unsuccessful – frequently mention the high caliber of professionalism demonstrated by Lovell & Associates, which reflects abundantly well on the people who are so happy to have engaged their distinctive services.
