They were based in Quebec but had their sights set on expansion across the US and Canada, which meant they needed a recruitment partner with the expertise to make that happen.

  3. Doing 90% of their business in Quebec.

The Search

Logibec didn’t have a sales team in place when we started working with them, so they needed a Sales Director that could win business while writing a playbook for a future sales force to follow. We knew our insight into sales and software made us the perfect firm for the job.

  1. Michael Lank of OMERS recommended our firm.
  2. Identified several highly qualified candidates.
  3. Time was a factor as other companies were competing for the candidates.

“She’s one of the best candidates I’ve hired in my career and I’ve been at this for 25 years.” said Ivan Lagace, VP Sales and Marketing at Logibec. We succeeded in securing the ideal candidate and the company is poised for explosive growth.

  1. Search took a grand total of two weeks.
  2. Candidate had driven $600M in revenue with previous employer.
  3. Laid the foundation of a substantial sales force.

When hiring our first CPO, we were looking to branch out beyond our network. The Martyn Bassett Associates team was able to source candidates that we were wanting, but unable to get on our own. We were presented with a wide range of fantastic candidates.

What I love about working with this team is they’re there to help. I have weird requests, they jump on the phone and we figure it out. I need someone in a hurry, they hustle. I maybe need someone ages from now, they keep an eye out. I have a question about a salary, or am unsure about how to approach something – they know. We’ve used them for a few years, and we’ve had nothing but great experience working together. Wish I had found them a few years sooner.
