Henry’s Story

Henry Goldbeck, President of Goldbeck Recruiting Inc., has been a leading executive recruiter in Western Canada for over 37 years and founded Goldbeck Recruiting 27 years ago. He’s been known in the recruitment industry as ‘Henry The Headhunter’, but Henry refers to himself as ‘The Accidental Recruiter’ after discovering his affinity for the industry following stints in the merchant marine, yoga instruction on three continents and successfully selling advertising, life insurance and wellness seminars.

At the helm of Goldbeck Recruiting Inc. since 1997, Henry built the company’s reputation as a leading Canadian headhunting and recruitment agency in Vancouver, BC by focusing on effectiveness and integrity. The team he has built is made up of – demonstrably – the highest performance recruiters available across Canada.
