“Vlaad completed an engagement which has the potential to fundamentally change the scale of our organization at Capitalize for Kids. They exceeded expectations on all fronts and we would highly recommend their services”

Kyle MacDonald
Co-Founder, Capitalize for Kids

“Ellen O’Brien and the Vlaad & Co. team live and breathe the capital markets industry. They bring great insight and have a pulse on the employment trends and practices within Canada. While candidates are encouraged to reflect on their personal and professional profile, they are also given a practical perspective on how this should be applied to a successful career transition. We received tremendous feedback from our student members who found the presentation truly valuable.”

“In the current business environment, hiring and retaining top talent remains our company's top priority. We have been successful with Vlaad and Company in very quickly identifying the right "short list" of candidates for open positions and moving to offers. Retention has been 100% due to thorough upfront role definition and matching candidate skills and cultural fit with our needs. We continue to work with the professionals at Vlaad and Company on an ongoing basis given their proven track record and understanding of our business needs.”

Partner – Professional Services Firm

“We recently engaged Vlaad and Co. to perform a search for a senior research analyst. We couldn’t be more pleased with the process and outcome. From the beginning, we felt that we had a team working with us to understand our objectives and canvass the market. In a very short period of time, we were presented with a snapshot of the market and possible candidates. As a result of their effort, we were able to reduce the time spent on a search and focus on interviews. We hired one person from the pool of solid candidates presented to us by Vlaad and Co. Ultimately, it was a very smooth and professional search facilitated through excellent communication and feedback.”
