Pierre is an accomplished CEO and entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience creating value within both public and private organizations in industries including staffing, recruitment, RPO, manufacturing, construction, distribution, finance and professional services.
A Founding Member of CEO Global Network, Pierre has successfully led companies through periods of significant organizational and market change.
Pierre began his career as a Senior Accountant with Coopers and Lybrand (now PwC) before transitioning to the client side and working as a Corporate Controller for several years in the insurance and manufacturing industries before becoming CFO and a minority shareholder of Plan Group in 1996.
In 2003, Pierre purchased Trevor Owen Limited. During his 10 year tenure as CEO, Pierre grew what was a local manufacturer into Canada’s largest medical and fire bag manufacturer and Canada’s market share leader in the transport bag market.
Pierre sold Trevor Owen in 2013 to purchase a significant interest in Head2Head Inc.—Canada’s largest recruitment firm focused on recruiting recruiters—and to serve as COO. Pierre guided the company through a major turnaround and led the team on the acquisition selection process, due diligence, negotiation and post-acquisition integration by WilsonHCG—who purchased Head2Head in 2015.
Following the purchase, Pierre served as Head of Canadian Operations, Global Executive, and Global Head of Finance and Accounting for WilsonHCG; a rapidly growing company that spans six continents and serves over 35 countries with revenues of over $47M USD. WilsonHCG was recently sold to a US Venture Capital firm at which time Pierre exited his minority shareholding.
Pierre is a CPA/CA with a B.Comm (Hons) from the Rotman School of Business at The University of Toronto, and an MBA, Strategy and Policy, from the Odette School of Business.
CEOs who have the opportunity to work with Pierre will benefit from his wide range of expertise and his genuine commitment to helping CEOs succeed.
