Thank you very much for your services. I’m glad I made a decision to give an ‘agency” another chance by contacting you. You have met my “expectations” of the service I needed with an employment agency. You listened to what we were asking for and asked the right questions, during our first talk. You proved to us that you are more concerned about providing the “right fit” for your customer’s employment needs, rather than just making a commission. I also very much appreciated the constant communication between us (even with difficult scheduling) and email updates, as well as your advice, observations and analysis.
I will not hesitate to refer you/Executive Assistance Inc., & Worth Recruiting, Financial Services to any colleague/ business contacts.
Human Resources Administration, Spirax Sarco
I have worked with Ann on a number of searches at my time with Bank of Montreal and at Marsh Canada. Ann and her team have been especially great at finding me senior administrators, HR Coordinators and other high end, professional support staff. Ann is great at following up and she has provided me with great commentary and summaries on the caliber of each of her candidates enabling me to make faster hiring decisions.
Associate Director – Talent Acquisition at LoyaltyOne
I have used Ann for staffing solutions at three different companies over a period spanning more than two decades, with satisfying results.
Senior Finance Executive, Mackie Research Capital
Ann is very committed to working with her clients (firms and individuals looking for employment) to find a perfect match of skills, personality, and work ethics. I have total confidence when referring colleagues to Ann because I know that she always has their bestÂ interest(s) in mind.
Manager, Investments and Advice, Richardson GMP
Ann is a black belt at recruiting. Integrity and confidentiality are givens as are top results. Ann quickly gains a thorough understanding of her client’s business, its departments and the positions required to fill. She then thoughtfully and thoroughly creates the right scenario for uncovering the right pool of candidates for the position, not just the usual suspects. Ann blends skill sets and experience with personal chemistry. This blend is found in her own work and she delivers that balance for her clients and potential hires for every assignment.
President, Grunau Groups
In working with Ann and her company we experienced a level of commitment and dedication surpassed by none. Ann’s flexibility, understanding of the complex needs of our process, ability to adjust to a changing dynamic, and overall pleasant demeanour all contributed to a stellar experience in working with Ann and her team. My colleagues and I can wholeheartedly recommend Executive Assistance without hesitation.
President, Oikos Emerging Economies
Ann is a consummate professional. She knows her field exceptionally well, is friendly, informative, encouraging, well connected, and an all-around great person. I would (and have) recommended many people to use her Company’s services. I was employed within a week of signing up with Ann Binsted. I recognized what a brilliant service Executive Assistance provided, it wasn’t just a job placement agency, it was an opportunity to network with the right people and allowing me the opportunity to use her expertise in placing me at a position that was well suited for me and within my field.
Senior Administration Professional, National Bank Financial
I can only thank you for one clear thing. The staff member I dealt with at your office and indeed, you personally, gave me the confidence to go forward boldly, and to just get on with whatever I could find, for now. It paid off. In the temp job I taught a more senior employee how to use excel, I realized I was more valuable than I had believed, and I did “different” work for a while, which was great fun.
I have always found Ann and her company, Executive Assistance to be an extremely helpful and effective business partner, consistently looking for a solution to suit all the parties involved. It has been my pleasure to work with her. Ann is very skilled, knowledgeable and dedicated. She has a unique and detailed approach when it comes to recruitment, where she fully understands both the clients’ needs as well as that of the candidates and I have recommended her in full trust and confidence to fellow association members seeking their next career move. Ann is a complete professional, applying sound knowledge and great experience to both business development and recruitment functions with a flair for sales and networking. I strongly recommend Ann Binsted and Executive Assistance to any company seeking the ideal candidate, and to individuals in search of a career progression.
