Construction and Engineering Recruiting Experience

Construction Recruiting Experience Backstory: 

David started his career as a construction headhunter and engineering recruiter for a small staffing agency in Ottawa Canada in 1986. 

His first assignment, to find a chief estimator for a company building a multi-use complex, lead to 70 additional executive search projects for that client’s projects in Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, and San Francisco – including the majority of the company’s real estate executives. 

An early 'win' was recruiting Ellis-Don Construction's first Director of Public Relations and Marketing. The candidate stayed with the firm for 27 years retiring in 2018 as a senior executive.

The scope of projects since 1988 have included civil, industrial, commercial, mining, and aggregate sectors across Canada and the United States.  Perry-Martel been active Canada, England, South America and the USA. 

Over the last five years the construction practice has focused on environmental engineering, dredging, multi-modal transportation and high-rise rental and office projects for clients in Canada and the United States.
