Conroy Ross Partners merges with Optimum Talent Executive Search


CALGARY, Sept. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Conroy Ross Partners, a retained search and consulting firm, is pleased to announce that it has merged with eastern-based firm, Optimum Talent Executive Search.

The merger brings together two established executive search organizations and positions the combined company to better serve clients and candidates from offices across Canada. The Conroy Ross Partners team will now include over 80 connected professionals operating out of seven offices in Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Quebec City, and via a strategic partnership in Halifax with Venor Search Group.

Mike Bacchus, CEO of Conroy Ross Partners stated, "Partnering with Optimum Talent was an easy decision. Our organizations share similar clients and industry specializations, making it a natural fit." He added, "This merger furthers the momentum gained from last year's acquisition of Toronto's Funnel Search Group which enhanced our presence across the country. Establishing office locations in Central and Eastern Canada allows us to deliver a greater level of service to national organizations as well as on regional levels. We look forward to working together with Optimum Talent as we continue to invest in and support our company's ongoing growth efforts."

"The merger of our Executive Search division with Conroy Ross Partners provides a number of benefits to our stakeholders. The landscape of recruitment is changing. The world is getting smaller and top talent is in high demand. Having access to national and international networks through offices across Canada allows us to fulfill the needs of clients looking for exceptional candidates. We are excited to enhance our approach to executive search while being able to offer it on a broader geographical scope. We are also very excited about leveraging each organization's specific expertise in all markets we serve," said Ronald Dahms, President of Optimum Talent.
