Everything about this company is shaped by Martyn’s experience, expertise and insight.
Born in England, raised in Canada, educated at McMaster University and living in Toronto; Martyn is one of Canada’s best sales recruiters and 30-year veteran of the recruitment business, with connections to Canada’s most successful entrepreneurs. He uses his personal experience, and knowledge gleaned from the pages of the Economist, to understand the challenges facing his clients. He’ll challenge you – on your business needs and the golf course – but you’ll be glad he did.
After working demanding hours on a salmon fishing boat on the West Coast of Canada, Martyn’s friends in the recruiting industry inspired him to pursue a career in the field. As soon as he started out in the business, he quickly realized that building leadership teams was his passion as he was driven by the growth and market domination that strong teams achieved.
Starting Martyn Bassett Associates was the natural next step. The company began as a builder of sales teams in the technology sector, but clients quickly became impressed with the candidates they provided and began to enlist Martyn to help formulate product management, marketing and tech teams.
By constantly working to expand capabilities and specialization in what he believes are key growth markets, Martyn gained the valued trust of his clients, and was able to evolve the firm into what it is today.
When he’s not working tirelessly for his candidates, he can be found golfing, skiing, and even perusing the St. Lawrence Market in search of new and exciting ingredients to add to his recipes. What never wavers is Martyn’s strong commitment to excellence in everything he does – just take a look at his track record.
