DHR Global Launches Business Growth Practice
DHR Global has launched a business growth practice, designed to drive a company’s competitive advantage through the provision of transformational and growth-oriented leaders in revenue-driven roles in marketing, sales and strategy. “At a time of unprecedented disruption, businesses across all industries are being challenged to discover innovative ways to create value and sustain growth in an evolving business climate,” the research firm said.
The new practice of DHR was formed with the understanding that the alignment of marketing, sales and strategy is critical to the success of an organization. “A focus on revenue generation and transformation is always essential, but especially so in the current economic environment,” said CEO Geoff Hoffmann. “Business growth roles are receiving even more attention from C-level decision-makers as they prepare their businesses to meet current and future challenges, and we are excited to bring in high-impact leaders who can meet these challenges head-on.”
DHR recently opened a new office in Montreal. Spearheading the expansion are Jonathan Plourde and John Gradek, who join the firm as DHR’s first Montreal partners. The new location helps strengthen DHR’s global footprint and supports the company’s expansion plans across Canada.
With over 10 years of experience in the executive search industry, Mr. Plourde will establish and lead the new location. He specializes in the high-tech sector. “I am very excited to join such an innovative global company,” said Mr. Plourde. “DHR’s collaborative spirit between partners will ultimately provide my clients with more resources and access to the best talent available.
