Case Study: Menard Canada

Menard is a specialty geotechnical contractor located in Richmond, BC with approximately 30 employees across Canada. They were looking for a Business Development Manager to join the team —a candidate with extensive experience in civil engineering, preferably a proper civil engineer that could do business development. Our recruiter Julia thought outside of the box for this placement.

As our President and CEO, Henry Goldbeck says:

“Part of our job is to read between the lines and know when you can go outside the lines.”

Identifying talent with transferable skills that match a specific industry is one of our specialties — and it proved successful with Menard. After Goldbeck Recruiting interviewed 18 candidates, we sent along one particular candidate directly to Menard; a salesperson with a background in construction instead of civil engineering. This candidate had all of the qualities in a potential Business Development Manager that Menard was looking for, and ultimately was hired.
