Boyden, a premier global talent advisory and leadership consulting firm with more than 65 offices in over 40 countries, today announced that it is opening an office in the province of Saskatchewan, which will expand its presence in Canada.
The Saskatchewan operations will be led by Dan Brown, a new Boyden Canada Partner. He joins Boyden from a leading national search firm.
“Our new office in Saskatchewan and the appointment of Dan supports our strategy in Canada and globally to provide clients with world-class leadership advisory solutions,” said Trina Gordon, President & CEO of Boyden. “Dan brings substantial expertise, enabling Boyden to continue to expand our client advisory services while enhancing our footprint across the globe and specifically within the energy, industrial, agriculture and public sectors in Saskatchewan.”
“The global presence of the region is understated and the time was right to showcase Saskatchewan,” said Kevin Gregor, a Partner of Boyden Canada. “Dan brings an impressive track record in C-suite engagements across several sectors, including industrial, business services, non-profit and education. His arrival with Boyden is a big opportunity to grow our presence in Saskatchewan and in Canada while leveraging our global connections.”
Over the course of more than 15 years in executive search, Brown has built lasting client relationships through outstanding service and effective counsel. He partners with public and private sector clients, primarily boards, owners and C-level decision makers, to source talent and build high-performing executive teams.
As a native of Saskatchewan, Brown takes pride in the province and will continue to be an integral member of the local community. To date, Boyden has stewarded some of the Prairies’ most prestigious appointments including University of Saskatchewan's inaugural Cameco Chair in Indigenous Health and its first Vice Provost of Indigenous Engagement. Boyden has also assisted in filling leadership roles within numerous organizations such as the Regina Airport Authority, the Regina Exhibition Association Limited, Saskatchewan Blue Cross, and most recently, the Provincial Capital Commission. In partnership with the University of Saskatchewan, the firm is sponsoring a new scholarship award for indigenous students. The first award will be made in the 2019-2020 academic year.
“I’m looking forward to working with Boyden’s highly collaborative and talented partners,” said Brown. “I was attracted by Boyden’s business model, which combines a robust offering and client-centric service to support client organizations at every stage of growth.”
Brown holds a bachelor’s degree from University of Regina and an Advanced Certificate in Executive Search & Leadership Consulting from Cornell University School of Industrial Labor Relations.
