Filling the leadership in Ottawa's tech sector
(Published in the Ottawa Business Journal - Summer/Fall 2008)

Increasingly, Greg Boyle says he hears a disturbing message from his clients: don’t bother looking in Ottawa for talented business leaders, because you won’t find them.And as a managing partner of Ottawa-based Stonewood Group, an executive placement firm for emerging tech companies, Mr. Boyle adds he typically defers to his clients’ wishes. “They were saying ‘there are not really that many good people in Ottawa with the right DNA to lead companies,’” says Mr. Boyle. But as a former CEO and an Ottawa executive himself, he says he doesn't believe high-calibre candidates can only be found in Montreal, Toronto or the U.S.

A headhunter pushes back

As a headhunter in the technology sector I am an almost obligatory stop on the networking circuit of many executive job seekers.

I am always happy to participate in courtesy interviews as I neither envy the job seekers’ circumstances nor take lightly the courage it takes to reach out to me.
