The pressure has never been greater for organizations to deliver strong business results in less time and with fewer resources, while mitigating the risk of hiring the wrong leaders. Odgers Interim Canada — the executive interim division of Odgers Berndtson — is growing again to meet this increasing demand for more flexible executive talent solutions that can fulfill specific organizational needs quickly.
Named the #1 Interim Provider by the Institute of Interim Management, with annual revenues growing an average of 50 percent year over year, Odgers Interim has recruited Andrew Dmytryk and Camille Petitti to its Canadian team. The hires are part of Odgers Berndtson’s ongoing strategy to provide clients with an integrated approach to talent management that features a suite of services, including executive search, executive interim, and leadership assessment and development.
Launched in Canada in 2010, Odgers Interim has experienced annual double digit growth, completing more than 250 executive placements across Canada. According to Odgers Berndtson’s Chairman and CEO, Carl Lovas, a dramatic shift in the talent landscape and increased pressure for companies to perform is driving this increased need for on-demand talent solutions.
“Andrew and Camille are among the most talented consultants in the industry,” said Jason Peetsma, Managing Partner of Odgers Interim in Canada. “They are highly respected professionals who really understand the talent needs of today’s organizations and they are committed to our goal of providing exceptional client service. We’re excited to have them on board, reinforcing our position as Canada’s leading executive interim firm.”
With more than a decade of search experience, Mr. Dmytryk comes to Odgers Interim from a top Canadian IT consulting organization, and brings extensive experience in talent advisement and recruitment. He is focused on the expansion of the firm’s executive Interim offering into high potential sectors in the technology space, from Fintech to Agritech and beyond. His clients include mid-cap growth, public and private equity-backed enterprises, along with some of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. As a fully bilingual professional, Mr. Dmytryk will split his time between Odgers Interim’s Toronto and Ottawa offices.
Based in Toronto, Ms. Petitti joins the firm as an Engagement Consultant, specializing in the selection and management of executive interim talent across Canada. She is also fully bilingual and brings diverse sector experience, having previously worked at one of Canada’s top privately-owned search firms, where she had a national focus within retail and CPG sectors. Prior to that, Ms. Petitti worked to streamline processes and support staff across all functions as a human resources administrator and consultant.
“Our services are really resonating with fast-growing companies,” said Mr. Peetsma. “The ability to have rapid access to an experienced executive when you need it most — and on very flexible and cost-effective terms — is allowing companies to be more entrepreneurial in how they innovate business lines, transfer knowledge and enter new markets.”
