Serge Bertrand, Founder of Performa Group, brings to his role more than 30 years of unique expertise and leadership experience as an executive search consultant for businesses in the industrial, technology, service and communications sectors.
« I am proud of the wide range of senior-level search mandates I have conducted in a number of different functional areas, whether for CEOs, vice-presidents or general managers. I have also built a solid reputation recruiting executives outside Canada, particularly in the U.S., for Canadian-based companies. I have served large public companies as well as numerous venture capital-backed businesses.
« I am very much aware that to survive in a high-pressure, competitive market, my clients must constantly be attentive to their own clientele’s changing preferences and needs. Within this type of evolving environment, they need to be able to rely on leaders who are true agents of change, who are highly productive despite limited resources, and who are able to communicate a long-term strategic vision for the organization.
« My clients recognize that I am the right person to reach these kinds of influential decision-makers — people capable of promoting their vision and making it a reality and who can steer them on the path to success. My approach to seeking out top talent has enabled businesses to build executive teams of the highest calibre. Over my 30-year career, I have conducted more than 1800 searches for my clients, from small start-up companies to major multinationals.
« My advisors have in-depth knowledge of the various industry sectors, as they have many years of direct experience in senior management and have maintained lasting business relationships with the top executives of hundreds of companies. Supported by a dedicated team, I achieve unparalleled results, as is evidenced by the enormous satisfaction of my clientele. »
