Global Talent Acquisition| Supply Chain Management (SCM) & Procurement Contingent & Direct Hire
Bronwen is a natural corporate matchmaker. In 1985, she founded The Pinstripe Group of Companies and built it from the ground up into Canada’s largest independent staffing firm. After selling to a multinational in 1999, she decided to channel her expertise into a much more specialized vertical and turn her hand to senior level global recruitment. Some of her most valued clients and mentors pointed her in the direction of the booming and extremely under serviced recruiting areas of Supply Chain Management including Strategic Sourcing/Procurement, Distribution/Logistics, Planning/Operations, Retail Merchandising and Change Management. Argentus was born.
Over the last number of years, Bronwen has successfully emerged as a leading authority, thought leader and highly specialized recruitment leader in Supply Chain Management with an incredibly robust network of contacts where she is respected and well received.
Building on her 30 years of recruiting and talent acquisition, Bronwen really thrives on the focus and understanding needed to work as a knowledge expert in a very narrow vertical. She really gets it. Candidates and clients commend her for the depth of her understanding and her enquiring nature to always learn more and because of that referrals into her network are plentiful. She knows her stuff, listens well and has learned to be a great out of the box thinker who brings recruiting solutions to her clients that really work. She has partnered with some highly respected and very well known senior executives in Canada, the US and now globally, to learn how Argentus can continue to build itself as a search partner of real value.
Bronwen leads our company-wide Specialty Vertical Branding. These initiatives are extremely vital to the growth and ongoing depth of our overall footprint in the North American & Global marketplace as a leader in Contingent & Direct Hire Recruitment.
The “mainstreaming” of the internet – and the fact that anyone can easily reach anyone else — has changed the rules of the hiring game. As Recruiting Partners, we understand that we’re dealing with different realities and possibilities than the previous generation of recruiters. Bronwen makes her marketing focus about reaching out, touching and reminding as many people in as many ways as possible about how things change in business and the importance of the NEW Permanent World @work, our rapidly expanding Contingent – Interim SCM Practice.
We understand that the dominance of social media is hugely important in business today. Bronwen and her team are committed to staying well ahead of the curve. How? – By functioning as Thought Leaders through our Blogs, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram, oDesk, and more. These social media channels play an integral role at Argentus in our talent search and positioning. Bronwen uses this to extend our reach fully and stay well ahead of all of our competitors.
Additionally, as the greater emphasis on mobile access becomes more prevalent – as people look to fill and find jobs from their phones – we’ve set our sights on being dominant in these newer areas of recruiting initiatives to meet client demand. You have to be innovative and creative to stay ahead in a very competitive fight for talent where demand is high – especially in Supply Chain Management and Procurement. By 2030, it’s estimated that up to 40% of the population will be Contingent globally. Bronwen has positioned Argentus to adapt to this change, by being innovative in ways that will allow us to nimbly respond to rapid business changes ahead of other more cumbersome, tech-shy recruiters.
She has built a prolific network and has a hand on the pulse of who’s who in the passive candidate market (because let’s face it that’s where the real talent is). Our clients know Bronwen’s capabilities as she manages searches for many senior roles herself.
She has formed and trained a boutique team of highly skilled recruitment experts all with their own unique areas of expertise to compliment her. As a group they have accumulated a breadth of experience and have much success in these demanding and thriving business verticals where demand continues to grow for talent but where supply is always a challenge. They work in tandem with Bronwen to support needs from companies for Category Managers, Vendor Managers, SCM, Supply & Demand Planning, Logistics and so much more in Manufacturing, Financial Services, Consumer Goods, Retail, Public Sector to name a few.
Bronwen has hitched some very high-level clients and candidates. From CPO’s and SVP’s of Supply Chain & Logistics in Food & Beverage to VP’s of Operations in Retail, she knows how to put together a winning combination. She’s earned a reputation for sinking her teeth in, being tenacious and passionate about the things in which she believes. So if she tells you she can do it, consider it done.
