  • Our company specializes in the development and production of plasma derivatives, an intricate biopharmaceutical manufacturing process. Once we’d selected Montreal to inaugurate our North American presence the next critical milestone was the sourcing of talent for various positions. Groom & Associates came highly recommended by one of our local contacts and after our initial meeting we were confident that this firm would facilitate our hiring needs. They successfully recruited key staff including Directors and Engineers and personnel for Regulatory Affairs, Validation, Quality Assurance, and Control, to name a few. In short, they proved to be highly experienced in pharma staffing, which they accomplished with professionalism and competence. Groom & Associates have become a true HR partner for Green Cross Biotherapeutics.

  • Groom & Associates considerable versatility & flexibility are what really impresses us. Their expertise allows them to go far beyond traditional headhunting and into the search for entire corporations looking to assign their books to Manulife – that’s a tall order, and they delivered handily. They also showed their worth when it came to sourcing the best available broker talent, and we’ve come to rely on them as our “go to” headhunting asset. In short, Groom & Associates produced results where it really counts - the bottom line. Their contribution to our profitability was obvious and appreciated. That they’re just as proficient with customer service adds to their winning formula, and makes them one of our valuable resources.

Groom & Associates made working with an executive search firm easy and enjoyable. They recently helped us hire our Canadian Director of Operations. Roles like this one are hard to fill and require a great amount of knowledge in the industry and Groom possessed just that; knowledge, expertise and motivation. From weekly status updates and phone meetings, they always offered us open lines of communication, dedication to filling this role with the perfect candidate, and they fully listened to our needs. We would definitely consider working with them again.
