Now one of the largest executive search companies in Western Canada, DHR’s Calgary office is a key provider of executive search, emerging leader search and leadership consulting, in partnership with its offices in Toronto, Montreal and Saskatoon.

Canadian operations will be led from Calgary by its managing partner of Canada, Bryan Arthur, who was formerly responsible for Western Canada.

“DHR has seen substantial growth in Canada, and we’re excited to continue on that path with the acquisition of the Calgary and Saskatoon offices of Boyden,” Arthur says. “We look forward to collaborating with our new team members as we bring the best executive talent to more organizations in Calgary and throughout Canada.”

He joined DHR in 2016 when the company acquired boutique executive search firm BluEra, which he led as managing partner.

DHR Global is a privately held firm based in Chicago, with offices in more than 50 markets spanning 22 countries with expertise in more than 20 industries and functional areas.

“We are pleased to build on our search, resources and relationships in Canada with Boyden Calgary,” says Geoff Hoffman, CEO of DHR. “With a combined local team of 26 professionals, we are expanding our footprint throughout the world and helping our clients achieve their talent goals.”

Boyden Calgary managing partner Kevin Gregor, who joins DHR in the same role, says his group had productive discussions with their new colleagues. “There is a total alignment in how we respect our people, value our many clients, and believe that coming together will be positive for everyone.”
